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.
Urban Casual is about being creative, laid-back, and …vintage.
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?
New Comforting: keep calm and peaceful with monochromatic color palette.
Travel in Style: all about glamor, elegance, warmth, and sophisticated.
When was the last time you play ping pong? Exactly. Don’t worry, you are not alone. Perhaps that’s the reason why this cafe was open — ping pong is everybody’s favorite sport yet nobody plays it anymore. Pong Me cafe may look like any other cafe from the outside — no, may I correct it: with that ping pong neon signage in front it’s very obvious — and when you get inside, it’s even more obvious that ping pong takes the center stage. Though it actually has more to offer. The interior design that is so fun, a bit glam, done by talented Mr Stanley Marcellius. The murals that are iconic, witty and playful by Sanchia Hamidjaja. The instagram wall that is unique and “path-able”. And the Scandinavian vintage chairs and sofa that are so…Jakarta Vintage. O yes, all the lounge chairs here are by Jakarta Vintage, including the dining chairs and two chesterfields in the VIP room. So now for those who want to mix coffee, pizza and sport together — all in style , this is the place to go. And whoever says cafe is only for drink, eat and chat, he’s never been to Pong Me – Ping Pong Lounge. Photos by & taken from Pong Me Facebook fan page.
Vintage hunting or spotting – I normally do it on the weekend. But that Thursday night I went to Hotel Kosenda, a new boutique hotel in Jakarta to unwind, and boy how I had a vintage-tic time. This hotel is like a candy store to me. Every single thing there is vintage at its best. Just superb mid-century pieces. Especially the chairs and the sofas! They are so… I am speechless, practically kneeling down on the floor. According to the owner, Pak Ruben Kosenda, all the chairs and sofas are original, authentic pieces, obviously not the kind of chairs you would find in the flea markets or so-called antique shops. Just premium, first class chairs– and they look it! And the good news is: They are not there just for the show, they are there for the guests to actually sit on it. With awesome chairs like these, now you can go to the hotel not to sleep, you can just have a coffee, take a bite and sit. Happy Monday!
Montreal — for those who want to be a little more educated, civilized and cultured, this is the place to be. As Canada’s cultural capital, the city has so much to offer in the art, culture and design departments. Including of course when it comes to vintage and flea market. So when I was there, I made sure I educated myself by going to see antiques and vintage a la Montrealaises. For antiques, Notre-Dame Street is the place to go. And for vintage and flea market, I went to St Michel. There are many other places for sure, but for a busy tourist like me– those two places did just fine. In St Michel I managed to secure some acquisitions…Oh shall I tell you that the prices here are not more expensive than Jalan Surabaya or Pasar Triwindu. Interesting, no? And like in any other flea market, you will meet the same friendly and happy faces, especially when you are being genuine. Here are some photos of St Michel flea market for your vintage-oriented eyes only. Happy Tuesday!
What happens when Basuki Ahok Purnama –the daring and outspoken Vice Governor of Jakarta–, Raditya Dika –Indonesia’s funniest man since Bing Slamet– and Anis Baswedan –the man behind the breakthrough Indonesia Mengajar– meet and share their wisdom? It’s called IdeaFest 2013. This creative business conference will take place on Sep 27-28 at Jakarta Convention Center and over 1,000 people are expected to attend 20 conferences and workshops which will also feature Rene Suhardono, Andy F Noya, Wishnutama and some other authoritative names in creativity. I am definitely so coming to this event –not only because I will be sharing my piece of mind in a workshop titled: “Fresh Antiquity: From Hobby To Business “– but also because I don’t want to miss a chance to meet with and get inspired by Indonesia’s most creative leaders. Where else will I find an event where comedy, politics, creativity, innovation, business and vintage meet ? For more details, click here http://www.fgdexpo.com/ideafest See you at IdeaFest 2013.
The arty, jazzy and stylish event in Bandung — LocaFore — is coming again this weekend in Kota Baru Parahyangan, Bandung. The three day event will feature 45 artists and 40 local labels, and around 30,000 people are expected to attend this event. And Jakarta Vintage is proud to be part of it –so, hello Bandung. See you this weekend:)
This is what happens when you have a photogenic space: media loves it! This three bedroom apartment in Thamrin Jakarta Pusat is just that. Last week two interior magazines came there to style, restyle, edit-in, and edit-out to make it more newsworthy and center spread material. At least that’s what I hope — as this space is designed by Jakarta Vintage. Enjoy the video –shot and developed by Fachrurozi or Ozi– and tell me what you think.
Hi, I would like to thank everyone who came to see this event, very well appreciated. As for those who have not had a chance to see, just relax, you have plenty of time until Sept 9 when the event will end. And for those who is super busy or simply too lazy to leave your homey space, this is a sneak peek video for you, shot and edited by Ozi. Happy watching, lets re-use, re-cycle and re-purpose as the exhibition tries to convey, and have a restful weekend everyone:)
I told you I have a soft spot for deer and antler. This wall rug I found in a thrift shop in Mont-Royale Montreal and the moment I saw it I said I must have it. What’s your soft spot? Share it with me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
