Live from Manila Fame October 2013: Red Box

Sunday, 20 October 2013

Red Box, an exciting collective of young local designers, exhibited for the first time at the October 2013 edition of Manila Fame, the Philippines’ premier design trade show.

A sombre mood infused this season’s designs as the country struggles in the wake of typhoons, earthquakes and political calamities. Designers rebounded by upcycling scrap materials and transforming them into innovative one-off pieces.

Leah Sanchez, designer for Red Box, created tables and pendant lights from raw and burnt blocks of palochina - softwood sourced from used crates and pallets.
