Living inacity that’salreadycrowdedandhectic,
makesmeoften surprised seeingnewbuildings,
apartments, andmallswere still built rapidly these
days in Jakarta. This conditionmakesmewonder
how it felt to live in Jakartaon the1970s,when
thereare stillmanygreenplaces spreadalong the

want tocreatea furniture that tookapieceof
shape that could resemble that time. And this is
why “doeloe loungechair”was created.
