Modern designers and artist of the Philippines vary quite a bit in their styles and sensibilities. One thing they all have in common is that they are a wonderful product of their culture. Whether they embrace European modernism or more of the vernacular architecture such the  Nipa hut, their astute connection with nature and pride for their culture always come through.

With a sense of isolation from the rest of the world, Filipino designers have pushed their aesthetics while still maintaining the value of design. Being surrounded by the real economic and political state of their country, Filipinos have designed to make it matter, purposeful and spiritual.

Filipinos embrace modernism for it’s simplicity which is the perfect showcase for the beautiful wood grains of Asia. Nature is usually brought in through bringing in wood textures from the islands.

Spaces are kept light and airy to contrast the hot and humid weather. The realities of the weather have made the open living space plan common in home design. Forms of screening for mosquitoes such as draping nets around furniture, have become a necessary consideration as well.
