Singapore-based firm WEIJENBERG has designed a unique wooden book casing for André Chiang’s latest book, Octaphilosophy

Chef and restaurant owner André Chiang has recently released a cookbook entitled Octaphilosophy, in which he defines this concept, which combines the technical precision of Asian gastronomy with the produce-driven seasonality of French cuisine. Each dish is built around one of eight subtly interlinked elements: artisan, memory, pure, salt, south, terroir, texture and unique.

Drawing inspiration from these eight fundamentals of André's philosophy, Singapore-based design firm WEIJENBERG, founded by Dutch architect Camiel Weijenberg, has created 50 limited edition book casings. Using sustainable Taiwanese bamboo wood that has been hand-carved to create eight distinct layers and a window to the book's cover, the design pays homage to the iconic wooden sculpture that was designed by the firm to sit at the centerpiece of Chiang's restaurant RAW.
