Thailand's top innovators offer the world sensational new materials and designs, often using the most amazing components
Material ConneXion has just published a bilingual book called "Discovering Thai Materials", which highlights 35 local materials. Among them are water hyacinth, jute, sisal, vetiver grass, bagasse from sugarcane, lemongrass and banana fibres, all of which can be used in wall and floor covering and furniture.
The latest innovative materials are sound-absorbing polyethylenes, water-repellent polyurethane foam and synthetic textiles that incorporate nanotechnology additives that have anti-bacterial and anti-odour properties.
