Art from the Angkor era
The art of Khmer sculpture and lacquer work originates from the glorious Angkor era. It comes in a great variety of models. Artisans d'Angkor has chosen to work on the most representative models of Angkor art using different materials in a rich variety of textures and colors. Proportions, design, texture and motifs are all followed meticulously in order to express the authenticity, sensitivity and vigor of the original models while expressing the ability and talent of today's young Khmer craftsmen.
Artisans d'Angkor's collection is deeply imbued with Khmer esthetics and culture. It is the result of much research and experimentation and invites people to discover Cambodia's identity through local handicrafts. To come up with a consistent and coherent collection, the design team worked with the philosophical, symbolic and conceptual foundations of traditional Cambodian culture, in its ancient as well as contemporary manifestations.
So as not to be limited to an intuitive association of ideas, forms and colors, the design team also works along a theme which simply may be highlighted through a particular color or graphic line that runs through the components of the various product lines.
