KOKON: My collaboration with Locsin International
Posted on

We all have our dark days. There were times I just wanted to crawl into a hole and hide there, but those days are behind me now, thank God!
When Reg Locsin and Brian Hagedorn of Locsin International asked me to design furniture for them, I grabbed the opportunity to create a hiding place where one could get away, read, work, sleep, be alone, and cocoon.
I decided to call it KOKON.
It started with a scribble on a small piece of paper. Then Locsin did a miniature mockup like this

KOKON

A trip to Locsin’s workshop in Bulacan where I saw the full-size frame for the first time

To get a feel of the space, we placed a temporary mattress inside

I sat inside as Reg Locsin (at right) discussed with craftsmen where to put the shelves

During the development of the project, a huge fire destroyed this workshop

KOKON

We started again and lots of things happened. Reg and Brian got married and revamped the Locsin website.
We hired Everywhere We Shoot to photograph the KOKON with model Sam Lewis

We shot it in daytime and nighttime. Sam called it one of her best shoots ever.

KOKON

It is amazingly spacious. Five people can sit inside and two adults can sleep with a child

KOKON

The KOKON daybed is priced at Php 164,000 for the indoor version and Php 232,000 for outdoor, inclusive of mattress and plain throw pillows. KOKON is now available to order at Locsin.com or through their showrooms at LRI Design Plaza, Nicanor Garcia Street, Bel-Air, Makati, or at 4th level, SM Megamall-B.

i’m thinking the weld must be really really good and powder coat to be able to ask for this price.
