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…
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!
