The originalhome designs are inspired by nature, the nature of Indonesia to be precise. The fierce, wild and unstoppable lush green of this beautiful country is undeniably overwhelming. Due to Indonesia’s warm and humid climate, nature grows exuberant, and the Indonesian lifestyle is mainly outdoors. The houses are open; the inside is connected with the outside and vice versa. In this country you experience the optimum contrast between the modern built environment with its machine-made minimalistic forms versus the lush organic forms of nature that inspires creativity. This balance between perfection and imperfection creates a new harmony that stimulates your connection with nature and as a result with your own nature. Due to our hectic and mainly indoor lifestyle, we forget how strong our connection with nature actually is.

Bringing nature into your home improves your overall physical and mental health, fitness, and wellbeing. It can be as simple as increasing the amount of daylight and clean air into your home or working environment or add lots of green plants. But there is more; organic forms and shapes (even made of steel) improve your connection with nature and create the same effect. Off course a single basket from plant material and of organic shape does not increase your wellbeing on its own; the more integrated the concept is the more effective it will be. The architectural trend on this subject is called Biophilic Design. Biophilic design seeks to connect our inherent need to affiliate with nature in the modern built environment. Buildings that are constructed according to this principle increase productivity, stimulate learning process and recovery of patients, and reduces stress.

The way we experience a room or area is as much as important as the way it looks. Our inert connection with nature should stimulate us to design spaces that make us feel comfortable, creative, peaceful, or stimulated instead of reflecting a picture perfect. Follow your own nature and let nature inspire you.

Our products are not designed from a designer’s point of view but from material and makers point of view. We persevere the authentic character of the materials in our designs and the nature of the crafts(wo)men is reflected in the end result. Only products made by hand can shape true organic forms. Therefore, products may vary in shape, colour and size. No product is the same.

Revitalizing your home will be of utmost importance in 2022 as the effects of the pandemic will continue to play a major role in our lives in 2022. To keep up with the constant change and to stay positive during these challenging times, we will increasingly feel the need to improve our health and energy levels. We will not only see a rise in the purchase of healthy food or wellness products to increase our sense of wellbeing but the urge to constantly improve the energy levels in our homes.
