I met the wonderful K Palat - or Time to his friends, which I am lucky to be counted among - about ten years ago when we worked together on The Siam hotel here in Bangkok. I was blown away by his work, the attention to detail and beauty, while never sacrificing function. A designers dream! I happily sent work his way and we have continued to collaborate on projects such as the Bensley Collection Siem Reap and Shinta Mani Wild, and the Four Seasons both in Koh Samui and Chiang Rai.
Bangkok born and raised, Palat established P4 Space in 2006 and since then has produced furniture for the likes of Louis Vuitton, the creme de la creme of Thai society, as well as set design for The Face and Drag Race Thailand. His subsequent expansion with Palat Studio naturally was into interior design and construction, which grows from strength to strength offering consultancy and design services for private homes and commerical spaces alike. Ever so soon Palat will be launching his first furniture collection, and I simply cannot wait to see what he has come up with. My friends, he is one to watch.... Keep your eyes peeled!
