Designer Talk: Nuon Songty

5pm Sunday 11 December, 2022
At F3 Friends Futures Factory


Meet Nuon Songty, the designer of the first canopy at Friends Futures Factory for the Creative Generation Under the Canopy project!

He was asked to design the canopy using sustainable and natural materials. To fulfill this requirement Songty was inspired by Cambodia’s rich and ancient basketry. He chose the humble bamboo chicken coop and will put together almost 500 baskets to form a new and contemporary shape. The canopy will provide a temporary space in the courtyard inviting the public to enjoy events and community gatherings under its dappled shade and innovative design.

Join him for the designer talk and learn more about what inspired him and what were some of his challenges and rewards for this project!
