Project: Fraser Suites Sukhumvit Bangkok.
Soho Hospitality sought a comprehensive turnkey solution to elevate their recently renovated guest rooms. Collaborating closely with our team of designers, we meticulously crafted specifications aligned with a fixed budget, ensuring it was not exceeded. Embracing the vibrant essence of Bangkok's ultra-urbanization, we conceptualized a captivating theme. To bring our vision to life, we commissioned a talented Spanish artist to create an exclusive series of 25 original paintings. These masterpieces were thoughtfully printed on high-quality canvas, resulting in 506 exquisite pieces. Each artwork was then tastefully framed and strategically installed, adorning not only the guest rooms but also the lift lobbies across all 22 floors. The fusion of exceptional art with contemporary design has bestowed a truly immersive and captivating experience upon every guest at Soho Hospitality's property.

Project: Quan Spa Marriott Bangkok.

These intricately designed lotus leaves, created by a talented Thai artist, were skillfully installed over each nozzle, effectively obstructing the air inlets. As a result, the unwanted reflections were immediately eliminated, transforming the once unremarkable water pond into a mesmerizing and enchanting lotus pond.
Project: MTV Exit Bangkok.
YMTV EXIT (End Exploitation and Trafficking) is an impactful initiative launched by the MTV EXIT Foundation with the aim of raising awareness and enhancing prevention efforts against human trafficking and modern slavery. Recently, we established our office in the vibrant city of Bangkok. However, we noticed that the open space's ambiance was subdued due to dull gray walls, which didn't reflect the energy and spirit of our cause. To inject life and positivity into the workplace, we decided to commission a talented street artist. The artist's task was to create five captivating murals that seamlessly blend modern themes with rich Thai traditions. These murals not only serve to brighten up the atmosphere but also symbolize the fusion of global efforts in combating exploitation and preserving local heritage. Through this creative transformation, our office space has now become a source of inspiration and motivation for our team, partners, and visitors alike. Each mural conveys a powerful message, serving as a constant reminder of the significance of our mission and the importance of collaborative action in putting an end to human trafficking. With these remarkable murals adorning our walls, we believe that our workplace will continue to foster a sense of unity and determination in the fight against exploitation, ultimately contributing to the greater cause of creating a world free from the chains of modern slavery.
