HOMESESSION001 is an event hosted by Norrm, U&KL (UNKL347′s furniture division), and House The House. It was held last Saturday at a formerly military ammunition storage transformed into UNKL347’s headquarter office, located on Jalan Gudang Selatan 88.
“The main reason of why we try to start Home Session is the feeling of ease, openness, classlessness, and deep-seated concerns to value our surrounding through simple things, like small gathering and music. Home Session is a space that allows us to view aspects from a rather intimate scale, or sometimes might just be a weekend visit to someone’s place, someone’s house, someone’s backyard, with cameras, and few records, that could be bringing us up to some nice conversations and pleasure.”
HOMESESSION001 hosted a furniture exhibition featuring design creations by some of Bandung’s designer. Including U&KL, Artes Indonesia, Goodwood & Carpenter Co, Zanun Nurangga, Metronome, Kandura, Meizan Nataadiningrat, etc it brought together a whole bunch of different approach in furniture designs with some good tunes from Dxxxt, Egga, Rekti from Bhang Records, and Bergas. On the other side, POP-UP KITCHEN by SURPRISE STOVE prepared by Keni Soeriaatmadja (Bin Ukon) and Arifin Windarman & Lukman Gunawan (Open Table). Free foodies for all the first getter! (Bin Ukon’s Smoked Chicken is heavenly, we fell in love at the first bite)
We dragged ourselves there and it was pretty brilliant that it actually cured our headache caused by traffic (weekend traffic that is!) HOMESESSION001 is a combination of three things that we, heck, everybody love; good designs, great foods, and best musics to spent your Saturday, getting inspired by.
If you by any chance missed the event, have a glance past their web for more info and details about Home Session. See you on the next visit! :)

Meet Lukie Widya Hartono, others called him Lukie. He’s my co-worker at work, so I’ve known him for 2 years now. He’s known for being a vocalist-guitarist of Spring Summer, a pop-ballad band from Bandung. Some of their songs featured on international music compilations, such as Series Two Compilation (USA) and Day to Embrace (THAI). They recently released their EP, “The Additional Ears” (my favorite track is “Small Things Act Like A Giant”).
He graduated from Interior Design major at ITENAS (and he became the first bachelor in interior design that graduated in just 4 years with a GPA above 3.45). He works daily as senior interior designer at House The House and owns a workshop that he inherit from his late father, speciality in wood-making (you can make chair, table, stool, etc made from wood). In his earlier year in college, he and his friend made Jogarworks, a design workshop speciality in wood and resin. One of their works is Minak Djinggo sculpture in Sukabumi, West Java.
“What makes me like this now is because of my father”.
Unlike other father-son stereotype relationship, he had a very special bond with his deceased father. His father taught him about life, love (he told us the story about how Lukie ends up having two girlfriends when he’s still in junior high, it’s all because of what his father did then), courage, truthfulness, and of course music. His father worked as an architect and one of his masterpiece is Preanger Hotel in Bandung, but he played as a bassist in his band back then. The first song his father taught him is Michelle by The Beatles.
Lukie has a dream to become a teacher, because he likes to teach kids anything like music, drawing, etc. For us he’s a very kind person, humorist and we could rely on him. We hope he could live up to his dream and will meet his plus-one as soon as possible, amen! :p

Continuing our trip in Bali, all 14 of us decided to visit other beaches around Uluwatu, in southern part of Bali. First, we went to Padang-Padang Beach, a beautiful but secluded beach behind the cliff. Poor us, it was packed with fellow tourists that day and within 5 minutes there, we decided to go to the other beach near in the area, Balangan Beach.
The next day, me, Morrie, and the other six guys went to Ubud, while the others snorkeled at Amed Beach. Morrie found a must-visit-place there, a small jam shop called Kou Cuisine. The place is so simple yet lovely, our upcoming post is specially dedicated to this cute shop.

Morrie loves beach so much, she always have soft spot for anything summer. Getting all excited like a kid with a cheerful smile, she could spent hours playing in the beach.
The first beach we went to is Echo Beach in Canggu, Bali. Since we didn’t bring our swimsuits, Morrie decided to walk along the beach, play with the waves and found some seashells (she picks some of them for herself), while I took some photographs (mostly of her :p).
These are the seashells Morrie collected from Echo Beach, my favorite is the spiral one, with the brown lines around it. :)

How are you, people? We’re home! The holiday was fun and the best part is we visited some new places we never been before in Bali. We traveled along with my co-worker from House The House, some of them is also Morrie’s friends from college.
At Echo Beach, Morrie found seashells and she took some of them as a reminder of beautiful beaches in Bali. See Morrie’s seashells in our upcoming post! :)
