With over 250 colour photographs taken in more than 30 private homes, this book shows that Filipino design has become a global phenomenon. The Philippines is home to a new generation of craftsmen who work in all areas of design. Their specialty is taking the indigenous materials of the country - pina, abaca, capiz shell, bamboo and rattan - to produce contemporary items that work as well in a New York loft as on a tropical verandah. They harness Asian- and Latin-inspired styles to modern techniques, producing a cornucopia of fine contemporary furniture and authentic decorative items. The metropolitan and rural homes in this text, many of which have never been photographed before, are accented with these contemporary Philippine designs.
