say hi to_ Design Studies: Tanawat Sakdawisarak x Muller Van Severen
say hi to_'s latest adition to their Design Series: Asian designer Tanawat Sakdawisarak x Belgian designer duo Muller Van Severen.
Tanawat Sakdawisarak was born and raised in the bustling city of Bangkok, Thailand. He studied Communication Studies and Graphic Design in the States and came back home to start his career as a Graphic Designer. I was drawn to his work as he creates graphic illustrations of interiors with memphis references, flat colors and surrealistic circumstances. Think Magritte meets Dr.Seuss meets Nathalie de Pasquier. They could come together and form a while new genre.
You know how the game goes - say hi to_ presented Tanawat with three contemporary designers and architects and he chose the Belgian furniture designers, Muller van Severen, as his inspiration. He created an exclusive series of four illustrations in collaboration with us drawing inspiration from Muller van Severen’s iconic contemporary furniture.
When asked what drew him to Muller van Severen, he told us “At first glance, when I saw their various works, there was something that related to what I am doing. It might be the combination of the lines and geometric forms. It seems as though it is just a simple thing but the difficulty is in how you could combine these things together and make them look new. Also, there is some sense of Memphis period like Shiro Kuramata’s work. “
Have a look at what Tanawat came up with below!
