Kenneth Cobonpue - Filipino Furniture Designer

Having a degree in Interior Design, I always ensure that I update myself as much as I could with the  latest trends in Interior Design. One story that really caught my attention was about Filipino Furniture Designer- Kenneth Cobonpue. A brilliant designer and can be described as an "Innovator." His latest design was not a furniture but a Car made of Bamboo and Rattan...Yes you heard it right. He named his creation "PHOENIX" This is the world's first and only car made from the said indeginous materials and is a "big hit" in Milan. It was showcased at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile during the Milan Design Week earlier this month. Currently, leading car manufacturers are also interested to pursue a collaborative project with Kenneth including Mercedes Benz.

Such an amazing feat from our beloved Designer. Inspiring and makes us proud to be a Filipino.
