Chomwan Weeraworawit

Bangkok-born, London-raised, Chomwan Weeraworawit trained in law, obtaining a PhD in Intellectual Property and the Textiles Industry in Developing Countries. In 2010, she founded Mysterious Ordinary, a creative/cultural consultancy that specialises in creation, production and consultation, working mainly with filmmakers, designers, architects and brands. One of Mysterious Ordinary’s most prominent projects was the Film on the Rocks Yao Noi Festival, an experiential film and arts festival that was co-curated by Apichatpong Weerasethakul and Tilda Swinton. It was at this festival that the Archipelago Cinema was created, a floating cinema designed by Ole Scheeren and built by the local fishermen of the island. In 2014, Chomwan co-founded Philip Huang NYC, a lifestyle brand that works closely with artisans in Thailand with the objective of creating clothes and products that merge traditional knowledge and artisanal know-how with advancements in technology and becoming a platform for the artisans’ stories to be told.
