Yatno was a 16-year-old Indonesian boy. He was very handy and creative.
He enjoyed making furniture and wooden toys.
The only tools he had were a chisel, a hammer, and a saw. With these tools he managed to create aesthetically beautiful, logical and simpel designs.
He would only use leftover materials, or wood/bamboo he could find laying around.
Yatno’s way of working with materials and problem solving is how we approach our work. We strive for perfection, sustainability, durability & honesty.
Jakarta is overpopulated. Jakarta isn’t the only major city with this problem. In Singapore, Taipei, and Mumbai you can experience the overwhelming hustle and bustle of overpopulation.
This is because of society relying on big cities for work and education. This means that living spaces have become restricted and thus a lot of people have no choice then to live small. Meaning that rental prices per m2 are becoming overly expensive.
In the Netherlands it is allowed to rent a room of a minimum of 5m2, when there is a public facility of at least 11m2 (toilet, shower, kitchen). This is Yatno’s framework. In other countries, especially in Asia this minimum living area can be smaller or non-existent.
With this in mind, Yatno was created. A furniture piece which fits in 5m2, and has a flexible nature. The furniture piece accommodates basic living needs in a restricted space.
