Morrie & Oslo's Desk by Metronome

Our desk is here! Finally we have desk for our workspace together. We’re so happy the final product is translated well by Metronome, exactly the way we wanted. The design inspiration for this desk is created from the simplest of materials and so it happen that in each of Metronome’s product ranges, they celebrates raw materials and careful craftsmanship. Match-made in heaven we’d say!

These are some of our desk snapshots that we secretly wish, if only we could keep ours like this during deadline. As you can see, the left part is Morrie’s part of the desk, while the right part is for Oslo. And if you noticed, we only have 1 chair for the desk. Well we’re on a search for a perfect chair to accompany the one we already have. Metronome’s work once again, that is :)

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
