thingsmatter is a design studio committed to engaging with architecture as both critical discipline and fine art; as an instrument for cultural enlightenment beyond economic gain.

Early work in Bangkok includes temporary interventions in commercial spaces, which criticize aspects of consumer culture, while celebrating the material extravagance and diverse audiences that only shopping malls can provide. Recent work extends the working method, tactility, and human scale of thingsmatter’s event architecture to more conventional buildings, including private residences that offer public statements on the nature of the built environment.

Savinee Buranasilapin and Tom Dannecker founded thingsmatter in 2001, after studying architecture at Princeton University. In Bangkok, they have taught, lectured, and conducted workshops at Chulalongkorn, Silpakorn, Kasetsart, Rangsit, and Bangkok Universities. Overseas, they've lectured about their work at Princeton, Harvard, and Columbia, and several international conferences.

We look forward to working with you.

Reflection Drift
 
Proposal: Reflection Drift is a sculpture made of slender, gently curving, mirror-finish stainless steel pipe.

It occupies two adjacent seven-story open wells, visually linking them without blocking the views across the wells, or the view to the sky through the glass roof above.

The sculpture is held in place by wave-shaped floor plates. However, it is not a wave, but an object adrift among the waves, as if it has been shaped and polished by their flow. It is aggressively modern driftwood.
