Discover the interview of Miquel Padres from Appart_ in Bangkok, Thailand.
How did you become designer ?
How would you define your vision of design, your style ?
At Appart_ we are not big fans of the segmentation of design as per styles. Obviously, throughout history, there are different art and design movements such as Baroque, Neo-classicism, Bauhaus, etc. These movements are generally defined by lines of though that happens in a moment in time and can only be explained in the context of the current moment and the past.
Our approach is that design revolves around the needs of those experiencing a problem. Therefore we create comprehensive strategies and ideas that provide user-centric solutions.
For the future, what are your professional projects ?
We are currently involved in several brand creation projects including a new meditation accessories brand for the US market or a sustainable activewear brand for the Thai market. We love working with start-up businesses because this gives us the chance to create and grow with them. It is a similar experience of helping to give birth and raise a child.
