Putting their heads together, they decided to use their favorite materials and techniques to create a small-scale collection in an exhibit titled CLOTH METAL WOOD, opening at W17 on November 6, 2014.
Ian used cottage industry embroiderers in Bulacan to execute his designs onto folding screens that act as elegant backdrops and room dividers.

Tata explores the aesthetic effect of industrial chemicals on precious metal: silver leaf.

While Mark was inspired to re-urpose large scale slabs of wood into tables—some as large as 4.5 x 6.5 feet.
Mark relied on the Pampanga workshops of Claude Tayag and Mike Aguas to execute his furniture designs.
