mrcup-pressacard-intro
st week went too quick... we do a thousand things, I can't even believe it is possible to do so much things in a week... I will gave you details on the amazing hotel of Bangkok, antique market we went to, or meeting and connection done, in some other posts...

We are now on the Koh Lanta island, well known of french readers for the TV show of the same name (the french version of the Survivor broadcast... but it is different from what you see on TV when you are guest in a nice hotel and have a wifi access... White sands beach and coconuts trees, this is where I will work this week !

Back on april 23th, last monday... Nico & Landry, my best Thai-French friends (you become friends eve, quicker than on facebook when you share amazing things), bring me to "Press a card" letterpress studio. As in a lot of country, letterpress in Bangkok is used to very uncreative things... But Zoom want to change that, and he used the workshop of his ant to learn how to print his own projects... He instal his nice design studio in one of the room and was happy to show us the amazing printing studio and its fascinating Thaï letters drawers...

Zoom also show use its projects. Strangly, he told us he has now way to do polymer shapes in Thaïlande, the reason why the still use metalic ones... They look nicer, but I guess it is more complicate... Anyway, here come some of his projects, some done by other Bangkok designers (like Tap at www.farmgroup.co.th that I finaly can't met as we planned).

Don't I look like Mr Clean on this picture of 4 of us (I may should have think about it before I jump onto the MrCup idea !). I do not have a earring, this is a visula effect due to the drawers behind me ;) Thanks guys for this nice moment (again).

Mr Cup in Thaïlande / week 2 / Chiang Mai

posted in Life & travels  at 5.27 AM from Mai Siam Resort (near Chiang Mai) / Thailand
Mr Cup in Thailand - Weel 2 - Chiang Mai

Our week in Chiang Mai is ending... It is in the north of Thaïlande, and there is a lot of craftmans and creativs here, the reason why we want to come. We stay at a very nice place outside the city, Mai Sim resort, Eric live here with his wife Pranee, that help us to speak and exchange with local people. Nice to have a office with mango trees around ! The idea beind this trip is to met creatives, peoples with amazing talents, and to work with them on products... I have met a lot of people, but the one from what I expect the most is this paper maker... this material is superb, now I have to create my own books with them... Here come some pictures to let you imagine...

I do this blog to inspire people... I do not know it will gave me so much in return... When I post about going to Bangkok, I get an email from Nicolas Dali, a french creative living here... World is small, as he used to work with the Poa Plume studio I visited last february ! He proposes us to go to unusal places of the city...

He brings us to the amazing house of his friends Landry Dunand & Alisa Tang who live in a small island near the city... After a bicycle ride under 40°C, the place looks even more amazing... It is well the wood walls you see on the picture above... Hopfully their neightbour had too much mangos, and we start by sharing them...

Nicolas live in Bangkok for about 3 years, while Landry for 7 years. They are both graphic designers, but Landry is more a photographer. If I was looking for a very small digital camera for this trip as I hate to carry big ones, Landry took pictures with a "Camera Obscura" found in Afganhistan... An amazing huge green wood box of 20 kg !!!

After, we went to enjoy a nice meal at the market near the house, while our daughter play with a water gun with all the childs around (we arrived in Bangkok during the Songkran, to celebrate Thai new year, everybody have huge water guns, buckets... and it is hard to not get wet !). After what we drive our bicycles in the jungle all around, with its banana trees, mango trees, coconut trees to finally arrive at the side of the island to see this view of the city... The trip start very well !
