Dots is a one-stop service design brand whose work covers product, interior and space design. It was co-founded in 2002 by Krit Phutpim, an award-winning design director. The brand has been known for their well-rounded services and well-finished designs, driven by a team of experts: designers, communication designers, interiors and strategists. They work in harmony to connect the dots that other people miss, by seeing the bigger picture while remaining detail-oriented. As such, they aren’t afraid of having fun using experimental processes and various materials, such as wood, metal and leather.
It’s easy to run out of fingers to count all of Dots’s project collaborations, products, art installations, and interior and exterior designs. The brand has also made waves for its Dot’s Object lifestyle products brand, with the uniqueness of “Plybike”, a wooden bicycle. Also, the studio has launched a reinterpretation of the traditional Thai herbal inhaler as a cooler version called “Arma Herbal”. Every design sensation will not be left out as experiences of clients and users are what the company holds dear; Dots thoughtfully gathers all perspectives from their specialists in various fields to make every conceptual idea functional. They then deliver every product with a distinctive design dialect; that may sound like a foreign concept to traditional ears, but it surely adds euphoria to daily life.
Dots executes their product development brilliantly, bringing culture alive through contemporary everyday objects with the belief that Thainess doesn’t have to look Thai. As creativity depends on how you connect the dots, the brand gracefully applies creative approaches to the new normal, where global changes afford room for the brand to grow. The upcoming collaboration with Bambunique, a Thai furniture brand, promises a surprising approach toward bamboo as a material. Dots is trusted amongst clients who dare to redefine themselves.
Dots studio modernized ARMA inhalers to become an item for all ages, changing the narrative of “yadoms”, traditional Thai herbal nasal inhalers that are regularly viewed as old-fashioned items. Inspired by the Lamy Safari pens, the body of the ARMA inhaler is built from aluminum alloy with a removable cover in luxury design fashion. The inhaler is refillable, offering two aromatic choices: original and citrus fresh. Pulling ARMA out to use is no longer embarrassing as sniffing ARMA is done in the same manner as sniffing cigars. The product is made to be portable. First available in two colors, but due to its popularity, the ARMA inhaler now comes in four color choices: dark grey, rose gold, titanium and red velvet.
