Future Living Studio (FLS) is a temporary design studio based in Hồ Chí Minh City, Vietnam. It is part of SPIN Asia, a project funded by the European Union to increase sustainable design capacity in South-East Asia by integrating local crafts, cross-cultural collaboration and sustainable design. Each iteration of Future Living Studio is comprised of three local and three foreign designers that work together in an intense six month process.
In 2011 I was part of the first iteration of FLS and spent four months working with local bamboo, wood and terra cotta manufacturers. During this time we developed a vision for an Eco hotel on Phu Quoc and designed an interior product collection. In the end we presented the results to all stakeholders and exhibited the collection on a home interior fair.
The hotel on Phu Quoc implemented parts of our vision and Future Living Studio had three more iterations in Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi and Phnom Penh.
