HOTEL NO. 12
Ary Juwono – JUMPUTAN LOBBY LOUNGE
Ary used the tie-dye motif in the rustic Jumputan Lobby Lounge, the pattern of which was also integrated with the motifs of the wallpaper, curtains, and even on the finishing of the wooden table. “I adapted the spirit of the basic idea of jumputan motif, which is an outline of the colour formed by the bonding of a dyed fabric, resulting in unexpected colour gradation,” explains Ary. While the finishing of the outside wall of a spiral staircase made of HPL and texture of raw metal may seem rough, the arrangement of bisaza mozaic from Italy with jumputan motif inside the staircase is hoped to produce a hotel lobby that is unpretentious, warm, modern, but still maintains a local element by making it look more inviting to visitors.”
Yuni Jie – KAWUNG MAIN RECEPTION
To Yuni Jie, the main lobby and reception area is actually the most important of all because it creates the visitors’ first impression. For this particular project, Yuni was inspired by the kawung batik motif, one of the oldest motifs in Indonesia. “The Kawung main reception was designed with an emphasis on functionality, while the style is more effortless, unpretentious, and timeless,” says Yuni. “The aim is to give this area a warm and humble feel so as not to intimidate the visitors.”
Reza Wahyudi – BUGIS BUSINESS LOUNGE
Renowned for his modern, simple, and functional works in both residential and non-residential projects, Reza’s personal style shines through in the Bugis Business Lounge. The geometrical and symmetric pattern of Bugis’ sarong on the tricolour floor marble felt wonderfully masculine and professional as you walk into this room.
