Jakarta-based designer Abie Abdillah is well familiar with rattan, partly because he's from a country that produces 70% of the world's supply and partly because he's worked as a local designer. For his furniture pieces, Abdillah focuses on rattan's innate qualities--strength and flexibility--and combines modular units of bent pieces into well-ordered shapes.Abdillah draws inspiration from a variety of sources: His Pretzel Bench is based on a bowl full of the snacks; his Doeloe Lounge Chair is modeled after the Oplet, a popular car in the Jakarta of the 1970s; and his Madu Lounge looks to honeycombs to provide strength across a plane.
