    The co-working movement

    Guru, Pasavat Tanskul, Published on 10/08/2018

    » Shared workplaces or co-working spaces, have changed the way people work and collaborate with each other, offering flexibility, opportunities, networking and even relaxation in ways a traditional office cannot. There is no doubt that there has been an abundant amount of such communal spaces in Thailand (look no further than our cover story on co-working spaces a few issues ago), which means that various start-ups and businesses have begun to change the way they operate. JustCo, headquartered in Singapore, is a leading provider of co-working spaces and opened their first co-working centre in Thailand in May. Their first space, which is two-storeyed and is within the AIA Sathorn Tower office building, has attracted potential clients with their vibrant setting, casual and cosy ambience and creative lighting designs. We chat with Kong Wan Sing, founder and CEO of JustCo, on why such spaces are in demand and expansion plans.

    Who knew space could be so shallow?

    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 21/07/2017

    » To be honest, there's a lot that Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets -- the latest space opera from French director Luc Besson (The Fifth Element, Taken) -- does well. Its universe, filled with diverse alien creatures and sprawling cities, brings to mind the likes of Star Wars, so rich with life and culture. The diversity of the aliens makes the action equally exciting, as the esoteric weapons and technology of each race come into play in unexpected ways. It's also quite humorous, with a surprisingly light-hearted script for a movie about genocide and military conspiracies.

    Sound hounds

    Guru, Pasavat Tanskul, Published on 24/08/2018

    » Bangkok's underground electronic music scene has been rapidly growing in recent years. There are various events focusing on different music genres which include house, disco, techno as well as the subgenres within, which there weren't as many a few years back. Western influences have changed the music landscape and conversely, Thai acts have begun to take inspiration from their style to apply on their craft. We chat with six Bangkok-based DJs and acts, artists who are putting in the sweat to expand and gain exposure in the underground music scene. These DJs have made a significant impact on the dance music community in recent years and Guru feels the need to give you, especially you who love the underground dance music scene, a proper introduction.

    A sunshine state of mind

    Brunch, Suthon Sukphisit, Published on 25/06/2017

    » There's more than a handful of things that Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and Bangkok have in common. For one, both places are hot, humid and rainy. Another thing is that they are both swarmed by mosquitoes, and palm, coconut and banana trees can be seen everywhere. A visit to Fort Lauderdale could very well make you feel right at home, save for the fact that cars drive on the right side of the road and the city boasts much better urban planning.
