Home is where the ART is

Few days ago I had a chance to go to an event dedicated to young and striving industrial and interior designers, It was held in SM North EDSA’s Interior Zone (it’s just right behind The Block), I also got to see some furniture shops where I got giddy and wend window shopping for a bit. lol.

The event was called “Home is where art is” which focuses on designing your own home by picking different elements like different furnitures to give your home that certain aesthetic that you want to achieve.

Students from MAPUA all rested to hear the talk from Manila Fame Artists.

2 speakers who participated in Manila fame last year gave a short talk about design mostly about furnitures and some from fashion and accessories. Below are some furnitures of the artists exhibited at the Mall.

This one is inspired from the pirouette of a ballerina, that’s why it gave an illusion of a twirling motion from a ballerina’s tule.

What I love about this is the use of steel in designing a surprisingly comfortable chair and a very aesthetically good looking center table/coffee table.

There was also an inter college design competition where in they showcases how each school designed their own pair of shulong that will best reflect their universities and colleges. University of the philippines won the design competiton, even I was so amazed how UP did their own shoe design, if you guys had been following me on instagram for sure you’ve seen their galaxy shoe design that I posted! hahaha!
