2013 / 3 months / Cambodia
FutureLivingStudio Cambodia was an EU-funded project in Phnom Penh. Together with our local colleagues we supported manufacturers in the development of sustainable products, which can compete with imported goods.
But future hotels don’t know about any local manufacturers and vice versa.
The long production time of locally made products also makes large orders difficult to handle.
Our goal was set to creating products which hotels and other businesses can add to their existing design.
We decided to do something similar and showcase our partner’s new products at an exhibition to advertise their services.
We where happy to receive lots of attention from businesses and local media.
