Manila FAME, through its product development initiative, will once again showcase new and innovative products from a collaboration between Filipino manufacturers and renowned Filipino designers.
The Design Commune, the trade show’s central special setting, will highlight more than a hundred new design-forward pieces from the furniture, fashion, home décor, and lifestyle sectors.
With several new trends looking towards the future of design and fashion, the Design Commune’s current theme looks back at the time-honored traditions of Philippine design and material culture while creating new products suitable to the modern lifestyle.
“Heritage Reimagined” looks back at the archives of the exhibitors, a goldmine of talents and ideas under the tutelage of Manila FAME, to incorporate timeless trends into modern interpretations for the next generation.
Under the creative direction of Vince Uy, a team of designers from the home, lighting, furniture, and fashion sectors will tackle the challenge head on to develop a bevy of designs and product concepts that take heavy influence from the treasure trove of cultural iconography and product designs that the design and lifestyle trade show and its exhibitors have amassed and have been immersed in throughout the decades.
The pieces will be showcased on October 17-19 at the World Trade Training Center Metro Manila.
