Büro Destruct in Bandung

Oh what a dull life it would be without graphic designers. No typography, pretty posters or eye-friendly book-covers layouts? We’re feeling a little dreary just thinking about it.

Three cheers then for the folk at Büro Destruct, who spend their days turning creative ideas into full-blown design-y types. They run some pretty great graphic design studio from their hometown, Bern, the capital city of Switzerland and they pretty much live up to their great history as one of the most sought after graphic design studio in the world. They design some of the most well known typography for pretty much everything. From posters for events to children books illustrations, even Radiohead use one of Büro Destruct’s font for their Kid A cover album. Pretty cool, eh?

We’re lucky enough to came to their Small City Big Design Lecture last Friday at Maja House. Lopetz and Fideljus showed some of Büro Destruct’s works from 1994 till present. Along with another guest speakers like Danny Wicaksono, Ismail Reza, and Herry “Ucok” Sutresna, the round table discussions between the speakers were engagingly inspiring!

Surprise Stove

We’re excited about this! The guys from KEUKEN will make you yet another Surprise Stove. This time, geeknick from LOOKATS Market, How To Cook Worker Food from sharee and The Surprising Soemo by Selaras Open Grill will enliven your leisure time at Taman Cibeunying. Isn’t that a perfect excuse to scoot around and gather at the park all in picnic-like fancies this Sunday afternoon? Yes please, we’d say.

If you want to know more about the previous Surprise Stove, simply scroll down the page for our post of Surprise Stove: Open Picnic at Taman Cempaka or you could check some of the videos below.

It’s really time for another merry Surprise Stove indeed. See you all there!

Surprise Stove: Open Picnic

About a year ago, we went to KEUKEN‘s very first Open Picnic at Taman Cempaka. The day was surprisingly pleasant. When a casual get together in such a vast park with various different sections where you could find a nice spot to scooted around and parked your picnic rug, shared along a basket of homemade food, served with a glass of fresh lemonade tea is an actual kind of happiness. The rays of sunshine penetrating through the vast leaves from the nearby trees, the smell of grass and the sound of warm conversations along with good tunes gathered us together.

With cooking performance from Chef Downey a.k.a. Arifin Windarman, photography workshop from Taman Fotografi, Diet Kantong Plastik Campaign, Ngabring Biking gathering from Bike.Bdg and everybody else contributed for a leisure day under the cool shade. There is nothing more pleasurable than spend your weekend picnicking with friends and enjoying a nice breezy afternoon in the park.

Take a day off, gather close.

HOMESESSION001

HOMESESSION001 is an event hosted by NorrmU&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! :)
