I'm in Indonesia on holiday so this weeks 'DESIGN OF THE WEEK'-item is of course from that country. I stumbled upon a talented Javanese designer who creates beautiful wooden products. He describes working with wood in a very appreciative way: "I consider wood as a balance material. In wood I can find strength, but yet weakness, advantages but also limits, and roughness as well as softness. Wood is a kind of perfect material, perfect cause of its imperfectness. Its characters teach us about life, balance, limits." Well said. Have a look at his website.
