lukis armchair

Design Abie Abdillah, 2016
Woven rattan, solid rubber wood
Made in Italy by Cappellini

The centuries-old tradition of rattan craftsmanship meets contemporary design in the creation of the Lukis armchair. Envisioned by Indonesian designer Abie Abdillah; his ground-breaking interpretation of these artisanal techniques from South-East Asia is aimed at fostering greater environmental awareness and sustainability. In fact, rattan is fast-growing, the whole plant is utilizable, and it can be easily molded with hot steam.

Raised in Indonesia, Abie Abdillah is a young designer who focuses on the use of natural materials, in particular rattan. For Abdillah, this medium epitomizes the meeting point between tradition and his ability to revolutionize his relationship with his origins and materials to find a fresh, contemporary vision. As Abdillah explains: "The reason I've chosen rattan is because of its origins: 80% of the world's supply comes from Indonesia. Nevertheless, despite all the prospects, the rattan industry in our country faces significant challenges: consumer indifference. Which is partly due to the idea that rattan is antiquated and also because there was a lack of high-quality design elements made with this material".

For the Lukis, rattan is used to form the distinctive seat and backrest, whereas the frame of the armchair is made of rubber wood, from the tree that yields rubber. The result of this blending of elements is a hand-woven indoor design element characterized by a precise and regular pattern: the cleanliness and accuracy of the pattern and details are a testament to the design, as they might lead one to believe the product was made by sophisticated high-tech machinery.
