About the Designer
Kenneth Cobonpue is a multi-award winning furniture designer and manufacturer from Cebu, Philippines. His passage to design began in 1987 while studying industrial design at Pratt Institute in New York.
While completing his studies, Cobonpue apprenticed for a leather and wood workshop near Florence, Italy. He went on to study furniture marketing and production at the Export-Akademie Baden-Württemberg in Reutlingen, Germany, under a private and state scholarship program, and subsequently worked in Bielefeld and Munich.
Cobonpue returned home to Cebu in 1996 to manage Interior Crafts of the Islands, Inc., a furniture design and manufacturing company founded by his mother, Betty Cobonpue, in 1972. Discovering that modern design could have a new face using natural fibers and materials, Cobonpue created pieces of functional art, offering an alternative to the Western definition of modern design. Today, the KENNETHCOBONPUE brand has become known globally for its unique designs and extensive roster of clientele, which includes Hollywood celebrities and royalty.
With his masterful way of integrating nature, traditional craft and innovative technologies in his work, designer and creative director Cobonpue has earned international awards and recognition for his creative, organic and expressive pieces. Working closely with some of the world’s leading designers — from household names to emerging talents — Cobonpue has been pushing the envelope for design in the Philippines and sharing his vision with a global audience.
Awards to Cobonpue’s credit include five Japan Good Design Awards, the grand prize at the Singapore International Design Competition, the DFA Design for Asia Award from the Hong Kong Design Centre, the American Society of Interior Design Top Pick selection and the French Coup de Coeur award. Several of Cobonpue’s designs were selected for several editions of the International Design Yearbook published in London and New York. Phaidon’s book, & Fork, underscores Cobonpue’s position as a leader of a new movement incorporating new technologies in crafts. In 2007, TIME magazine called him “rattan’s first virtuoso.” Cobonpue was named the Designer of the Year in the first edition of Maison&Objet Asia held in March 2014 in Singapore.
Cobonpue reveals new work each year in the design shows from Milan to New York, and he speaks regularly about Southeast Asian design all over the world. He has also appeared in European television and in countless international magazines and newspapers around the world. Various Cobonpue designs have also appeared in full-length feature films and television, such as Oceans 13 and CSI.
