"I’ve seen both internationally-acclaimed product designers and Thai designers showcasing their work at numerous exhibitions and other events abroad, all of which featured clever gimmicks and spot-on ideas. Likewise, Bangkok Design Week 2018, recently held for the first time in Thailand, was an equally spectacular event that promoted learning through design approaches that embodied creative expression. Eventgoers got to see renowned designers, architects, entrepreneurs, manufacturers, artists, and others express their identities through their designs and creative work. All of them shared the same purpose and values, aiming to empower Bangkok to become a driving force in the Creative Economy. Given its essential purpose, PTTGC realized the importance of supporting this event, encouraging everyone to understand the significance of upcycling plastic waste in a creative way."

As a marketing expert, I believe the core of a marketing concept is delivering innovation-focused products and services. This approach resulted in the development of PTT Global Chemical’s (PTTGC’s) Customer Solutions Center, which is based on the concept of being the company’s epicenter for providing management and integrated services for customers and businesses.

This unique venue serves as an effective customer feedback channel, providing information to help you develop and improve your innovations, new products, product design development systems, and collaborative models with clients, as well as support the “Circular Economy” in partnership with business allies to promote the efficient use of resources.

The “Waste Side Story by PTTGC” pavilion, which was part of Bangkok Design Week 2018, was the result of a unique partnership with fifteen leading Thai and international architects and designers. Each shared the same passion for encouraging resource efficiency and adding value to plastic waste by upcycling, which is transforming it into fashionable products such as clothing and home decor items, to tackle the problem of plastic waste and reduce its environmental impact.

PTTGC supported the partnership by providing knowledge about different types of polymers and various molding techniques. So, it’s fair to say this event was initiated through close and positive partnerships with several associated people and organizations, all sharing the same objective of creatively turning plastic waste into innovative products under the theme “Better Together.” They demonstrated how improving the quality of people’s lives and protecting the environment can go hand in hand.

Highlights of the Waste Side Story by PTTGC pavillion inclued a beautiful chandelier made out of metal waste and recycled plastics; the “Saw Breaker” electric guitar made from biodegradable Polylactic Acid (PLA) using 3D printing; and an unconventional yet striking ornament comprised of plastic straws to show the value of a product is not only determined by its raw materials. One of the most popular displays at the pavillion was the eye-catching DIY Plastic Machine (respawn) that offered eventgoers the new experience of making their own souvenirs out of plastic waste to take back home.

While Bangkok Design Week 2018 is over, PTTGC believes it inspired all eventgoers, who learned a great deal while exploring their creative side. Meanwhile, the PTTGC Customer Solutions Center will continue with our clear purpose of continuously developing both virgin and recycled plastic products, while enthusiastically supporting entrepreneurs and local communities so they realize the importance of high value-added products developed through PTTGC’s creative works and made from our raw materials.
