Jakarta Vintage

About Evan Aditya

Evan Aditya illustrates his vision with bright color and monsters. He tries to convey the biased and unrealistic values that burden in today’s fast pacing generation. As the result, Evan believes that we need to channel our voices.

That’s why as the founder of Show The Monster, character design and pattern studio based in Jakarta, he makes a brand as a symbol of freedom for self-expression.

This piece is a collaboration between Jakarta Vintage and Evan Aditya, featured in the Future Vintage auction.

About Mabelle Emeralda

Mabelle is a designer based in Jakarta. Her interest for art dates back to when she was a child and her father took her to an auction house. A single painting was so captivating that she began experimenting with visual arts and its varying media.

In high school Mabelle’s interest for interior design grew following a project i.e. designing a student lounge. The budget was not enough to cover all the expenses and Mabelle decided to make her own line of furniture using waste materials notably, one from the plant water hyacinth which clogs up the water reservoir, sewer etc that caused flooding in Jakarta.

Her study continues in Italy, specifically Istituto Marangoni Milano. In her time there she felt that the world of interior design and fine arts were not so different after all and believes that the two can overlap or even merge together.

Unfortunately, her time in Milan was short-lived as she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and had to stay in Jakarta. Before enrolling back to university she experimented with other career options such as being a fine artist, tattoo artist, a florist and a terrible tango dancer. But finally interior design was the right path for Mabelle and she enrolled in LaSalle College Jakarta where she is in her final semester and interning at Jakarta Vintage.


These are the chairs in collaboration with Mabelle which will be put in auction. We can find here the Modern Man chair, the Modern Woman chair , the Peacock chair and last but not least, the Zoloft chair.


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!
