Betty Cobonpue, 1980s Furniture Designer

MY LATEST DISCOVERY 

Betty Cobonpue

Betty Cobonpue is a Philippines-based furniture designer who in the 1980s created a line of furniture called Scultura.

Cobonpue’s collection is superbly crafted and very rare to find. She has described her designs with a simple mantra: No hard edges! In her work ribbon detailing twists and lines flow smoothly through the entire furniture piece. Unlike most rattan furniture that is woven, her furniture is made from thin pieces of rattan vine, carefully cut, heated and wet-bent over wooden forms. This method makes the pieces very strong and they don’t wobble like most rattan furniture.
