LOCAL
CHARACTERISTICS

The exhibition “Pure Gold – Upcycling! Upgraded!” was first introduced to the public at the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe, Hamburg, Germany aiming to travel to different countries over the course of 10 years with Thailand as the start of the journey across the globe. At every venue of the Pure Gold tour, local designers are invited to collaborate with Pure Gold in the exhibition.

For Thailand, the renowned Thai curator and designer, Eggarat Wongcharit, and 3 Thai designers, Anchana Thongpaithoon, Jarupatcha Achavasmit and Roongtip Luilao, are actively participating in this exhibition.

»Consumers should want to buy recycled products not only because they are aware of environmental issues. The standard of upcycling production should also reflect product value that can improve lives. Standardized upcycling should use less energy, save labour costs and be friendly to the environment.«
