KC_SALONE_7 Taking part in a collective stall “Made in Philippines” Kenneth Cobonpue and Hive presented their 2014 collection as a family affair in what is a diverse and exciting year ahead for Kenneth Cobonpue and Hive. Kenneth Cobonpue brought along the fam, together with the latest product. Seeing new collections for the first time gave KE-ZU an opportunity to understand the size, form and material components of the newest product from our regional friends.

The shade is made of rattan moulded into the shape of oceanic mollusks with a hint of vintage Hollywood glamour.

Fan Coral which is made of handwoven steel and Filipino wood that was left over from previous projects, gracefully spread its wings against the light of the Made in Philippines’ Salone Milano stand.
