Growth AND REPOSE
Inspired by the organic form of a seed (binhi in Filipino,) Ito Kish’s
Binhi collection stays faithful to the seed’s purpose of fostering growth. A three-piece collection, the Binhi with its crawling greens that grow from within, transcends its mere functionality. It can also be considered as sculptural art. The small and medium sizes nurture the growth of plants while making room for up to two persons to sit. The large piece, meanwhile, allows seating for multiple persons which, according to Kish, fosters human relationships. “We grow when we connect and communicate with others. The Binhi aspires for this,” says the multi-awarded designer.
