Exhibiting — for the second time — in the world’s most important fair that is Salone del Mobile in Milan makes me honored and super proud. Along with 26 Indonesian designers, I was chosen to exhibit my work in IDentities booth at Rho Fiera Milan, Italy, from 17 until 22 April 2018. This time around I was exhibiting Style and Substance — a limited edition fine porcelain tableware collection. The concept is inspired by the creative and visionary Nitisemito, the King of Kretek from the 1920’s. The design is a combination of the authentic art deco style and local motifs and objects with a touch of geometric and symmetrical designs as well as the color selection of gold, black and white, making it exclusive, premium and lux.
Indonesia is rich in culture and tradition that I am proud of. It has always been my mission to tell a story — an Indonesian perspective— through the design and products that I create. This collection is exactly about that. For the world to know and appreciate the design that is made and inspired by Indonesiana . for the foreigners to get to know and appreciate the design that is inspired and made by Indonesians. A special thanks to Bekraf for this opportunity. Viva Indonesian design.
