What happens if you combine Vietnamese craft and Scandinavian design? The superheroes stools are born.

Swedish design duo Mattias Rask and Tor Palm of Glimpt traveled to Vietnam to explore the culture and craftsmanship of the country. The two teamed up with Vietnamese furniture company UMA, and got to know various artisans from which they observed their craft. They decided to use the method which is used to create small bowls. But instead of thinking small they wanted to use this technique on furniture pieces.

The result was they got in contact with seagrass and plastic weavers in Ho Chi Minh city for the collaboration in which they have created a series of stools called “Superheroes”. The inspiration of the colourful patterns derives from the colourful threads that usually decorate Vietnamese hammocks. via designboom

Mekong Red Dragon Rice packaging

Posted by rod - 07.04.2010

Vietnamese folklore tells us that a benevolent dragon resides in each of the nine mouths of the Mekong River. It is in the hillock areas of these fertile Delta lands that the unique strain of dragon blood rice grows full and lush.

The rice is Eco friendly and Fair Trade. Furthermore husking, sifting and packaging are done by local villagers creating additional employment. It is also healthier Rice; during the husking process, the bran layer is only partly removed, as it is within the bran layer that the majority of beneficial nutrients are stored.

The simple design balances with the traditional illustration (by the brilliant Andrew Denholm) which uses the Mekong river to weave the journey of rice as it is grown, harvested, transported and sold. Mekong Red Dragon Rice is available to buy in supermarkets in Vietnam from April 2010.” Designed by Scott Lambert, Design Positive via TheDieline
