Let’s meet the designers of what could be "The Industry" …..
Although his educational background is in architectural design and he is a licensed architect in Thailand, Bundit’s passion lies in everything that has to do with design. From houses, buildings, to furniture, set design, old t-shirts, and recycled bottles, all of these things he has tried to design. He also believes strongly that good design is approachable, accessible and can inspire others.
Bundit received his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Washington, Seattle in 1994 and received a full scholarship to attend Massachusetts Institute of Technology for his Master of Architecture degree. Upon his return to Thailand after receiving his degree from MIT in 1998, Bundit taught architecture on a university level for seven years and established Tadpole Studio during this time. He returned to the US to be an instructor at the University of Hawaii Manoa’s School of Architecture in 2005. Besides having taught architecture at the university level, Bundit also taught second graders arts at the Linekona Art Center as a volunteer.
Outside of his academic endeavors and under Tadpole Studio, Bundit designed several private residences and resorts in Thailand. In Hawaii, he has worked with the award-winning architecture firm Urban Works from 2008 to 2011 on a wide range of projects from schools to transit facilities. In his free time, Bundit has embarked on a variety of projects with fellow designers and artists, including cap-a-city with Kirk Malanchuk, an installation art piece using used bottles and caps and, This used to be…”, Angry Animal t-shirts using old t-shirts with new graphics designed by various artists. He resides with his wife and dog in Honolulu where he enjoys swimming in the ocean.
Kirk Malanchuk is a designer currently living and working in Honolulu. He is a flatlander, a foreigner, a pedestrian, and a cyclist. He is influenced by everyday experiences, and always has a camera, a pen, and notebook with him.
Kirk is educated in environmental design, with an emphasis on architecture and has had work published in student architectural journals. He has worked collaboratively on installations and self initiated guerilla design projects. Professionally, he has experience working in architecture and graphic design on a project spectrum including commercial, educational, and retail. While Kirk is based in Honolulu, he has worked on projects for major corporations and non-profits in the US, Canada, Japan and China.
As we continue to build our plan, create our design and envision our model we want to know more and more about the importance of The Industry. That being — you! The Industry is a resource center for you! So, that being said, it’s important for us to know what you want, what you need and what will benefit you. Maybe you’ve said these yourself once or twice.
- I want to shoot over the weekend, but I don’t have the right tools, big rentals houses won’t rent to the little guy the good stuff.
- I need to write, but there isn’t a place that is comfortable and inspiring to let my ideas flow.
- I’d love to find a place that I can look up a calendar and see what events are going on this month. Lectures, workshops, motivational speakers etc. A place where something is always happening for my creative mind.
- Where can I go to unwind with my book and drink a good cup of coffee?
- My friends and I need a recommendation for lunch where we are in no rush to leave. We’re chatty like that.
- I need a space to work, but can’t afford to rent my own spot. Inspiration with an address?
- We want to showcase our new indie film, we’re looking for a great venue to host it that can turn into a Q/A session or perhaps unwinding with some drinks and appetizers.
- It’s a wrap! We need a full service venue to Thank our Crew for their hard work and celebrate. Who can host us?
We want to know being in the Industry or aspiring to be - what are your needs? who are you? etc. We’ll be conducting research over the next few weeks and months and we’d love your input. Please contact if you’re interested. It shouldn’t be hard to find us, we’re all over the place (on the web that is, for now).
