“When goods have stories to tell,” reads the premise from Tuangkamol Thongborisute.
Are we talking about handbags discussing their childhoods, or vegetables complaining about their awful day? That doesn’t sound creepy at all.
Maybe Tuangkamol is more interested in hearing from sofas and chairs at “Living Room,” an interactive exhibition opening Friday at Speedy Grandma.
The exhibition promises to show guests the stories behind furniture and household goods by enhancing them with “new functions” inspired by how people use them, as if they are alive. Again, not creepy at all.
Find out for yourself at the opening reception, which begins at 7pm on Friday. The exhibition runs through June 7.

Paywall: You’re outta here, Coconuts stories are free for all
We have removed our paywall on all Coconuts stories. This does not mean the end of COCO+ Membership at all, but the value proposition is changing.
Rather than being a transactional subscription – whereby you pay for access to content – it is now a true membership program – whereby Coconuts stories are free for everyone but super-fans can monetarily support our independent journalism, and get added member benefits.
If you'd like to support Coconuts, you can become a COCO+ Member for as little as US$5 per year. Thank you!
