Purin Phanichphant
Senior Designer/Maker, IDEO

Website | @purincess

Though at different times, he’s masqueraded as a Hollywood star, a part-time prince, and a buddhist monk, Purin has always been a designer at heart. Drawing inspiration from his native Thailand, where fun, play, and lightheartedness are a way of life, and his fetish for buttons, knobs, and displays, Purin has designed a number of playful and interactive creations. His most recent work includes a six-foot-tall land-glider dubbed the Death Wheel 3000dx, an interface for human-computer sex, a wall covered with all the tap lights in the Bay Area, and a machine that churns out authentic Thai food with the push of a button.
