Extra Ordinary Designs At Desain.ID 2012

Table lamps, made of bicycle wheels. Beautiful execution of reduce, reuse, and recycle.

The most anticipated event on interior design in Indonesia –Desain.ID 2012– has just kicked off at Jakarta Convention Center last Wednesday. This year it focuses on “design in extra ordinary means”…Well, for me it means I have to find extra ordinary and iconic designs to be highlighted here, not hard at all as there are so many interesting works there. Here is my personal choice. Have a restful weekend!

A lounge inspired by a utilitarian, vintage graphic meat ball bowl. Art that you can sit.

Eames seems to be a solution to every design problem, not that this room is problematic. Love the moody lighting. 

Bamboo and Rattan will stay relevant as demonstrated by “Indonesia Young Rattan and Bamboo Designers”.

A credenza called Tantrum Trap, “The Most Aesthetic” in the 3rd Indonesia Furniture Design Competition. Designed by Ruby Sofyan.

Good to know that Reduce, Reuse, Recycle is ubiquitous and considered cool. For the earth, that’s for sure.

Another utilitarian item which turns into an art.

Vintage designed radio by Kriya Nusantara. A gift that I can not resist, can you?

A rocking day bed by Kova and Viro. It rocks!

Well, I say, if you need to spice up your life, get a room like this. A bit dizzy perhaps but interesting.
