Life – 2024

Hey! Back again with me, and of course I have something interesting to share with you guys.

Lately we have been moving our showroom from Darmawangsa Square to Jalan Benda, Kemang. On Saturday 22nd of September, we held an event here at our new showroom called ‘Life 2024What life in 2024 would be like in the minds and hands of 11 artists’ This exhibition is a collaboration with One Comm Indonesia, Yayasan Bina Kreatif Indonesia and Suar – Art space. This event exhibits 10 paintings that tell a story about how our life will be in 2024.

These paintings are curated by a good friend of mine, Nin Djani, and the artists are, Aisha Hanna, Arris Aprillo, Aqil Prabowo, Atreyu Moniaga, Evan Aditya, Garisinau, Ika Vantiani x Feransis, Lala Bohang, Mahendra Nazar & Sarkodit. In fact, these paintings are actually going to be exhibited until 22nd of October so if you’re curious about it, feel free to check out our showroom.

The event was a total success, everybody had so much fun and all of my friends enjoyed the exhibition. Almost all of my close friends attended the event and that gave the event a personal touch, and it was also a great platform for everybody to get to know someone knew.

At the end of the event, everybody gets a poster which has one of the artist’s paintings on it, and is picked up randomly so it’s kind of like a surprise who gets which artwork. I would like to say thank you to all the sponsors which are Formica, Mowilex, Teka Parquet & Cosentino which enhances the look of our showroom. Now you can enjoy some pictures from the event. See you next time!

STYLE & SUBSTANCE : BACK TO THE 20s WITH AN ART DECO EXPERIENCE

Hello!  I’m back again with something fresh and new.  feels great to be blogging again…

Lately I held an event about my latest collection which is called ‘Style & Substance’. It’s a collection with a touch of modern contemporary art deco design inspired by the life of Nitisemito from a book called ‘Sang Raja’ By Iksaka Banu. This book tells a story about Nitisemito being a successful entrepreneur from Kudus, Central Java. With a fiery passion for interior design and architecture as well as some brilliant joie de vivre frame of mind. Nitisemito’s persona was alluring and timeless… an authentic personification of what it means to have ‘Style & Substance’. This event was held on the 18th of December 2017 at ‘Samsara Indonesian Cuisine’.

Quite a lot of people showed up at the event, even more than I expected, and it made me really happy that everyone enjoyed the event. We had dinner, chit chatted, talked about the book, there was even a photo booth set up for people to take pictures in the installation and we all had so much fun. Not to mention the talented musician who made the ambience extra ordinary. It was surely a great evening…

There were a couple of merchandise that were distributed to the guests before they head home, some of which including a scarf for women and a handkerchief for men. These merchandise were specially designed for this event as a part of the collection.

Overall the event turned out to be a blast and I’d surely make more events for my upcoming collection. To top it all off, here are some pictures taken from the event…

CASA Indonesia 2017: There’s no limit for Happiness!

Another exciting event that I blissfully honored to be a part of was CASA Indonesia 2017 earlier this June. Casa Indonesia is undoubtedly the most important design event in Indonesia and thus the must visit event for design enthusiasts – and this year it was a huge success!

This year I was exhibiting my design concept on Cook & Design, in which I collaborate with Zen Ceramics, and Suwe Ora Jamu, with the theme “Herbs & Spices”. I presented my wallpaper collection which I used as the backdrop and some spices on the table as a decoration for the people to enjoy the art through their sense of smell as well.

In one booth under BEKRAF (Badan Ekonomi Kreatif), I displayed a picnic chair which I also displayed at Milan Design Week 2017.

Last but not least, a booth at TALA, presenting the unique and fun ‘Mary & Teddy’ porcelain collections.

It was an exciting experience to be a part of this exhibition, chitchatting with like-minded people– really refreshing my mind. I’m looking forward for more events like this in the future.
Of course, I wouldn’t forget to mention, here are some pictures from the event!

A Glimpse of Indonesian Design in Milan

Anyone, any designer would be extremely delighted and honored when his or her design made the cut to be exhibited in Milan – the Mecca and the capital city of fashion and design. I was one. My picnic chair, which I call “Jakarta Picnic Chair” and my fabric named “Herbs and Spice Island” were exhibited in Zona Tortona, during Milan Design Week, earlier this month.

It was actually Indonesia’s first time to be featured here in Milan Design Week! Indonesia’s debut exhibition was called IDentities: Handmade Contemporary Indonesian Design Pavilion. So you can imagine how lucky I felt, to be one of the selected Indonesian designers who got to tag along… and exhibit! Alongside myself, there were other Indonesian designers such as Sagalakayu and Kandura Studio.

Anyway though, it felt real good to have Indonesian designs recognized, I feel like it hasn’t been looked upon that much. Indonesia is home to many ethnicities, cultures, and much more, which means we have a lot to show too! Thank you Bekraf (Badan Ekonomi Kreatif Indonesia) for making this happen!
