THE SOUL OF JAVA
The Colour of Indonesia
For Vivianne Faye, spontaneity is often the fuel in creating an original, interesting design that
radiates with experimentak mood and drama. Design is a manifestation of self expressions for this interior designer whose career span over 25 years. To the Design and Graphic Art
California State University of Fresno, USA, alumni, a design must possesses a personal touch. A sense of balance. A principle reflected throughout her creations.
Her experience in working with a leading interior design firm in USA reminds her not to be fixated on a single design style. Because to Vivianne, interior design should be able to transcend the evolution of history into the future. Alongside Agam Riadi, Anita Boentarman,
Joke Roos and Shirley, she visualises her vision onto a three-bedroom apartment unit. All the involved designers in this unit-apartment project agreed to use Classic and a touch of Mid
Century as the main concept. Taking this as the reference, Vivianne delivers the style through several strong colours, most of them are dominated in green palettes, such as emerald. She
also elevates the patterns of batik Garutan at this second-bedroom of the unit apartment. Her mastery in juxtaposing materials and colours ends in a harmonious balance. A tribute to glamour.
