PET Lamp Thailand
In 2018, Thailand was the country in charge of interpreting the technique developed by Álvaro Catalán de Ocón to transform PET plastic bottles into lamps. As in previous occasions, through a methodology based on; field research, prototyping and on-site workshops the studio of Alvaro Catalán de Ocón has developed a collection of lampshades in collaboration with Traditional Bamboo Handicraft Center, a foundation supported by her Majesty Queen Sirikit that enjoys a distinct reputation in the field of handicrafts in the country. Bamboo is the chosen material –typical of the Southeast Asia region– worked with precision and careful detail by the best craftsmen of the country. Each PET Lamp Pikul is a unique product, the shapes and the patterns of the lamps are standard on the contrary colours are chosen directly by the Thai artisans which apply their traditional pigments freely.
