Design studio alvinT recently designed the interiors of a bar in Japanese style in Djakarta, Indonesia. Alvin Tjitrowirjo's extravagant fairy-tale-like interpretation forms the perfect bond between contemporary Japanese culture and its most ancient, traditional distinguishing signs.
The result is a bright, cheerful environment in pastel colours that looks like something out of a manga. The graphics and posters on the walls, the chairs, tables and big canopy shaped like a Gyoza were custom-designed to give the project a particularly well-cared-for look.
alvinT's style is perfectly expressed in the use of uniquely Indonesian materials, for he is a great supporter of the traditions and handcrafting skills typically associated with Indonesia and uses them in practically all his designs to draw the world's attention to them.
