In an admirable display of furniture fusion, a group of Thai designers has reinterpreted the aesthetic of traditional crafts to make use of modern technology. Crafactor utilizes new industrial production techniques to create designs that are at once folky and futuristic. The Infinity Armchair is made entirely from rattan, a material that is eco-friendly and abundantly available in Southeast Asia. Crafactor also incorporates water hyacinth into many of their more finely woven pieces. Their 2005 collection is a mix of organic and ultra-bold seating, illuminating the entire spectrum from reeds to PVC.
