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…

INTRODUCING MARY & TEDDY COLLECTION

Last March I launched Mary & Teddy fine porcelain designer tableware collection– a creative collaboration between me and Sango Ceramics, the largest ceramic company in Indonesia. I designed the prints and Sango applied them on their ceramics, that’s how we collaborate.

Mary&Teddy design is inspired by the ceramic dolls that I found at Pasar Cikapundung, Bandung and Kebayoran Lama, Jakarta. I also made a story about it, it’s called Reclaiming the Fun. A little girl named Mary who loves playing the piano, but got distracted by a pony named Teddy! After all Mary is just a little girl who wants to have fun. Mary&Teddy collection was launched at the MOZAIK Indonesia Exhibition early in March. To complete the collection I made Mary&Teddy chair collection too.
If you didn’t get the chance to check them out, here are the photos! Also drop by our showroom since the chairs and the ceramics are available at our showroom.
