Helmed by designer Abie Abdillah, STUDIOHIJI is a Jakarta-based design studio that creates contemporary rattan furniture. Skilled craftsmen use time-tested techniques to produce each piece, bringing out the beauty of natural rattan sourced responsibly within Indonesia, the world’s largest producer of the traditional material. Through the contemporary form and curves of his designs, Abie aims to renew consumer interest in rattan, and in so doing, contribute to the preservation of the rattan industry.
STUDIOHIJI's works were selected for ASIAN STAR SHOWCASE at the International Furniture Fair Singapore 2014, a collection of pieces by rising designers from across Asia. Abie is one of six promising young designers selected as Rising Asian Talents to present their works at MAISON&OBJET ASIA 2015 in Singapore. Abie received the 2015 Innovative Craft Award : ASEAN Selections 2015, alongside four other ASEAN designers recognised for their creativity and innovation.
