Alvin Tjitrowirjo has been invited to take part inthe XXI Triennale exhibtion “alamak!” presented for the first time in Milan. AlvinT will introduce new designs specially created for: Design in Asia “The contemporary aesthetics of Asian design”.
From the 2nd April and until the 12th of September 2016, the exhibition curated by Yoichi Nakamuta and Tim Power featuring designers and artists selected from 10 Asian countries will be held at the Triennale di Milano housed in the prestigiousPalazzo dell’Arte.
Strongly linked to indonesian resources, customs, habits and heritage, alvinT pushes the boundaries of the indonesian aesthetics and offers elegant, original piece that can with stand time and trends.
Angan, one of the pieces showed during ‘Alamak’ introduces this tension between traditional and modern, between traditional archetype and a new design language. The suspended shelf is made out of natural rattan poles forms a cage-like silhouette bound to uncoated brass shelves fixed with leather. The whole shelf is suspended by using rope and a hook. Positioning objects within the shelf will distort the balance of the shelf, expressing the volatile and imperfect nature of the situation.
"Angan" in Indonesian means daydream. Currently, a state of mind many indonesian artists are in during the development of their culture.
Alvin explains, “I want to revolutionise Indonesia’s creative industry and place Indonesia in the world design map. I’m deeply inspired by the authentic traditional Indonesian culture but I always want to add a modern contemporary twist which gives to my designs a unique mixture of modern and traditional approach.’’
The second piece Lumping rocking horse is derived from a traditional Javanese dance which alvinT transformedia modern playful outdoor furniture drawing a light and dynamic silhouette. The graphical woven texture of the body made out of rattan injects a dose of local flair, providing a nice contrast to its solid black or white aluminium frame.

AlvinT furnished the La Vue roof top of the recently opened Hermitage Hotel in Menteng district, Central Jakarta. The rather intimate sized roof top gets life from our Lala sofa set which comes in our distinct white grey beige tri colour woven pattern complimented with yellow throw pillows. AlvinT also developed the stools as well as the coffee tables to come with the set.
A set of our Khalla chairs found its new home recently, and its not just any home as this one belongs to the well known architect Thommas Elliot. Thommas ordered a special color red for the chairs and was beautifully placed in his dining room in Jakarta.
Jenggala introduces the Wangsa tea set :
A capsule collection in collaboration with AlvinT. The collaboration was something that developed organically, as both brands are highly inspired by Indonesian heritage and culture.
The design of the tea set takes the Wangsa, a geometric pattern that is synonymous with AlvinT's identity,and applies it to classic pieces from Jenggala's Bruka collection. Each Wangsa tea consists of one teapot, two cups and saucers, two cake plates, one sugar bowl, one creamer, and one rectangular tray.
A limited number of sets will also be available for purchase at Jenggala Jimbaran.

AlvinT Studio delivered a fresh contemporary reinterpretation of Japanese fish market ambiencealigns with Sushi Grove Market Concept.

With strong details and play of scale, it created a distinct experience towards the customers.
