Luthfi Hasan is a designer based in Jakarta, Indonesia. He created the Jakarta Vintage label in 2012 and in the year that followed, the Jakarta Vintage mid-century chairs and interior consultancy was launched. In 2013, he won the Best Use of Social Media Campaign at the 2013 Indonesia’s 4A’s Award, and Interior Designer Of The Year 2015 by MNC Smart Living.
Under Jakarta Vintage, Luthfi has had his chairs installed in cafes around Jakarta, Surabaya and Bali. In addition, the chairs are available for sale in Qatar. Luthfi’s uniqueness lies in the strong story telling and bold graphics.
In 2016 Luthfi launched a fine porcelain giftware collection under the Mary & Teddy label, with the support of Sango Ceramics and Tala Indonesia. Luthfi’s current projects include designing art installations, which have made it possible for him to combine all his interests and passions in interior design, art, vintage design and flea-market hunting. His major art projects were held at the prestigious National Gallery, National Museum, ICAD 2016, and ARTSTAGE Jakarta 2016 & 2017, CASA 2015/2016/2017, NY NOW 2016, and Salone del Mobile/ Tortona Design Week 2017.
