  • Dymitr Malcew has created the design for the offices and showroom of Technigroup, an office furniture supplier located in Jakarta, Indonesia.

    Furniture showroom in Jakarta designed by Dymitr Malcew is referencing the factory, emphasising a spirit of authenticity and energy.

    The main goal of the project was to create a unique yet flexible space that functions as an office as well as a showroom. The design concept is based on the story of the furniture factory. The idea was to bring the unique and authentic spirit all the way to Jakarta while adding local influences without being too literal. Raw and natural finishes and textures such as cement, wood, felt and metal used throughout the space, communicate honesty, authenticity, craft and the human approach. Visitors are welcomed by a futuristic feature signage wall with a logo reinterpreted in black steel, LED lights and moss used as a backdrop. Showroom and office areas are interconnected, however, a screen divider with traditional Indonesian cut-out pattern creates a sense of privacy.

    The open ceiling maximises the overall height while walls clad with felt improve the acoustic quality of the open space. The wooden structure “wrapping” the showroom area is inspired by traditional Indonesian construction techniques. Together with a pinnable felt wall, it creates a flexible display system for samples and mockups. Furniture in the office area is monochromatic white or black, juxtaposed with rustic wooden tops and rattan lamps handmade by local craftsmen. The feature moss wall at the entrance and planters with lush greenery in the showroom area communicate the brand’s sustainability-focused approach as well as visually connects with the surroundings.
