No matter where you live, more and more people are moving into small city spaces than ever. That’s why we’ve worked with Thai fashion designers Greyhound Original to develop SAMMANKOPPLA, a limited collection of furniture and home accessories that blends Bangkok street style and creative re-purposing processes with our apartment-living expertise.
The Greyhound story began in the 1980s, when four friends with a passion for living well decided to open a clothes store together. Fast forward several years, and they’re now selling their designs from new locations in Hong Kong, Shanghai and London – and their food from the Greyhound Café in hometown Bangkok. They believe that life should be simple, but never boring – describing their brand’s key concept as “Basic with a creative twist”.
Much of the collection features bold patterns inspired by Bangkok’s urban landscape and Greyhound’s graphic fashion sensibilities.
You’ll find cushions shaped like this in markets throughout South-East Asia – they’re the perfect shape for resting your back on.
The houndstooth design on this bag is one found in traditional Thai weaving – but here it’s made using modern materials.
If it’s stylish, why shouldn’t your lamp look like an old plastic bottle?
“This is a collection influenced by a city where anything goes, and it shows that imperfection can be perfect.”
- Bhanu Inkawat, Executive Creative Director at Greyhound Original
