I dont know about you, but I think the creative energy is blowing quite strongly lately….In the past few weeks Jakarta’s hipsters, young at heart, art lovers and design junkies have witnessed some happening events in the city such as the uber cool Bright Spot, the stylish Pasar Disain 2014, and the artful Jakarta Biennale and SEA Triennale 2013. And there are more to come, I believe. Jakarta DoArt is one. This event is a mix of art, craft and design market and exhibition, taking place at the Street Gallery of Pondok Indah Mall on Nov 28 – Dec 1, 2013. Initiated and organized by a movement called Doinc/ Do Art (www.doinc.org and www.DoArtProject.com) Jakarta DoArt believes that art is for everyone and therefor it has to be attainable by everyone, which perhaps in the form of tote bag, pillow, tumbler, and other interior items. Jakarta Vintage — along with other brands such as 2Madison, ArtMediumStore and others– supports this event 100% by participating in the event, in the market side. As for the exhibition, Darbotz, Indieguerillas, Dhayank Pambayun, and other artists will display their iconic works in a way that Pondok Indah Mall regulars have never seen. Do come.
What color is in (and what’s out) in 2014? The answer to this question for a global leader in paint and coating such as Jotun is 24. Yes, Jotun provides 24 colors of paints in its Color Trends 2014 campaign, which are grouped into three themes: Travel in Style, Urban Casual, and New Comforting. Urban in Style projects elegance, warmth, and glamor, best represented by dark blue, green, maroon and purple. As for Urban Casual, it’s all about being creative, laid back and individual with orange, retro blue and grey in the color palette. New Comforting is best for those who want to have a relaxing, peaceful and simple space. This color scheme includes dew blue, tudor, edelwise, among others. For the launch event of Color Trends 2014 the Norway brand commissioned Jakarta Vintage to make an interpretation of the three themes above by designing and decorating three spaces in its launch event today. Here are the photos, styled and shot by our creative team, at our showroom/ studio at the Darmawangsa Square. How do you like it?
