Furniture Made from Reindeer Parts (apologies to Rudolph).
The "A Part from Reindeer" collection by Thailand's Anon Pairot Design Studio are unique furniture designs which incorporate the body parts from reindeer. No, real reindeer were not killed for this project, but instead fiberglass casts of reindeer parts were painted either antique gold or black and made into the limited collection of benches and seats, which are available for purchase.
The pieces are able to withstand the elements so they can be placed indoors or outside. Anon Pairot can also customize the pieces with engraving upon request.

Anon Pairot's Statement about the A Part Collection:
Nowadays we are living with things full with counterfeit things, sex transforming, plastic surgery, artificial nature, richest cosmetic make-up, a man able to transform to woman, a woman affix to become a man, house is not a home, building is not just an architecture, endeavor of aroma developing beyond than its natural existed till do not know its merit. It seems to be that human is looking for maximum perfection of their life and love.
Nevertheless, pre-known of perfection should be recognize should be recognize after understanding in imperfection.
Do we need the most beautiful thing from our boundless desire? Do we try to set value of maximum beautiful to set value of maximum beautiful of the finest thing by its excess price; it does not mean that costly things reflect its owner great taste? Luxury may reflect bad taste.
Thus, Does people looking for finest material super furniture, super functional, someone’s predicted trend in modern world, best proportion which defined by small group of people?
A part exhibition is not answering all those questions. Now, question we want audiences to find the answer from their mind. However, it seems to be an undone design. Be just a thing from something we naively integrated. Be embellished from different things or inexistence combination way of these things.
Things from history, ancient are just an obsolete object we should praise or be tools for us to recreate new things from them. This project attempt to make it seems undesigned, fearless and most innocent understandable design.
Finally, a part which is done by human will not be just “a part”. Furthermore, Will a part be just a part? Does existence of our finished work available? Our dreamt beautiful life has its programmed path or just need to follow the existed social, norm, culture civilization?
Intended of “a part” exhibition is pass forward goodness message to the others more than just the best furniture design.
