Designer-artists Buensuceso, Sakuma, and Ruiz worked on Manila FAME’s Light & Shadow special setting to give their interpretation to the age old interplay of light and shadow through their individual designs.
Stanley Ruiz’s special setting is a product of his collaboration with Bon-Ace Fashion Tools, Inc., MASA Ecological Development, Inc. (MASAECO), Prado Filipino Artisans, Inc., Triboa Bay Living by Vivere Lifestyles Company, Inc., and Venzon Lighting Manufacturing, Inc. These modular pieces allow for exploration, combination, play, reconstruction.
The Philippine-based Japanese designer Wataru Sakuma collaborates with CSM Philippines, Inc., E. Murio Inc., and South Sea Veneer to transform one shape into multiple and distinct works through the utilization of the uniqueness of various materials.
Jinggoy Buensuceso works with Cancio Contract Furniture Corporation, Industria Home Vico Manufacturing Corporation, P&B Valises et Compagnie Inc., Shell Arts Company, Inc., and That One Piece Enterprise. He manipulates lighting and infuses it with lines and organic forms to create a theatrical play of light and shadow.
