MusiKasangkapan: Obra ng Pinoy Milenyal, a special exhibition of over 50 exquisite furniture, showcases the seamless interpretation and transformation of the beauty of Filipino music, from its rich tradition to the current pop culture.

The collection from the Interior Design Program of the De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde includes outdoor lounges that relive the beauty of the Filipino courting harana; armchairs reminiscent of a classic vinyl record player; accent chairs inspired by the charm of wind chimes; a furnishing that portrays indigenous instrument from T’boli.

Pieces such as hammocks and coffee tables put into shape the iconic songs of all-time favorite performers from singers such as Rey Valera and Regine Velasquez and 90s rock band Eraserheads to today’s leading artists such as Moira de la Torre and Ben&Ben.

The gallery also features a special section that celebrates the legacy of Philippine National Artist for Music Ryan Cayabyab. Inspired by the renowned maestro’s notable tracks such as “Paroo’t, Parito,” “Kay Ganda Ng Ating Musika,” “Nais Ko” and “Limang Dipang Tao,” the showcase includes designer fittings that radiate the musician’s remarkable rhythm and the warm emotions.

These innovative creations from young innovators prove to be a promising display of true Filipino heritage and talent as each piece was made from scratch using locally sourced materials such as rattan, bamboo, woven buri (palm leaf) strips, T’nalak textiles, and polished Capiz shells,

MusiKasangkapan: Obra ng Pinoy Milenyal is available on view at the S Maison Main Atrium, Conrad Manila, Marina Way Seaside Boulevard, Mall of Asia Complex, Pasay City, from Sunday, 24 November until Thursday, 28 November 2019.
