Many of us create when trying to sort out feelings and emotions. Ivan Christianto, a designer from Indonesia, is no different. In his case, Christianto created Mari Bermain Rasa, which literally translates to “Let’s Play with Feelings.” He turned the pieces of his emotional journey into the creation of these three pieces.
Bosen is made from discarded plywood and pine wood that Christianto picked up during long walks. Inspired by boredom, it’s 95% used materials.
Tujuh empat sebelas, made from a mix of steel and pinewood, is a personal expression of an inspiring life event.
Taman Bermain literally translates to ‘playground’. It was created to represent Christianto’s journey from choosing his home, his workshop, and the places where he sources his material. It had started off as a cabinet, but then turned into an installation furniture through the production process.
