Previously seen collaborating with artists such as Elizabeth Romhild and SRINLIM, high-end stereo brand Bang & Olufsen is releasing its fifth collaboration, this time with Thai artist Pomme Chan, who is breathing something refreshing into the project—feng shui.
Thailand Tatler caught up with the illustrator at Bang & Olufsen's boutique at Gaysorn Village in Bangkok to have a chat on oriental mysticism over tea.
So tell us: How did this collaboration start?
Pomme Chan (PC) I had actually seen earlier collaborations with artists like Phannapast and Srinlim, and I liked the idea very much. I mentioned to Duangkamol, the director of Bang & Olufsen, that it would be great for us to collaborate, and she agreed right away. So we started discussing how to create something fresh, and Duangkamol gave me a lot of freedom as an artist. Prior to this collaboration, I’ve done a few other projects like the Sirimongkol exhibition, which focused on imagery for luck and good fortune. People buy these paintings and ceramics as auspicious decorative items. So for this time, I thought to turn the Beoplay A9 into an auspicious speaker for good feng shui.
