Two designs by Lanzavecchia + Wai dust off ancient techniques of weaving rattan in objects handcrafted by Indonesian artisans. Bilik is a room divider with multipurpose pockets, suitable for holding objects of everyday use, which stands on metal legs. Bubu is a bench made of thin rattan canes that flex under the sitter’s weight, allowing the material to make the most of its characteristics. The canes are set on a metal structure which resembles a plinth. Both designs were created at the FUTURECRAFT workshop, organized by the Singapore Furniture Industries Council (SFIC) for the 2013 International Furniture Fair in Singapore (IFFS). #Makers.
