Luxury art and furniture with a soul Beautiful interior design performs on many dimensions. Natural materials, forms, colours, and finishing touches make spaces livable – and products functional. The international design studio and manufacturer Jatra Design creates wooden furniture, interior objects, lightening and accessories that have a unique sense of style and identity.

Luxurious, artful, but totally functional. The label Jatra Design – with showrooms in Switzerland and Singapore – designs and crafts contemporary furniture and artwork. All materials are responsibly sourced and produced, and the finished products embody the richness, character, warmth, and depth that best describe Jatra Design’s aesthetic philosophy. 22 | Issue 38 | May 2016

In 2005, Lirim Ibrahimi from Switzerland and Dina Istova from Indonesia founded Jatra Design to showcase a wide range of extraordinary interior objects, luxury art furniture (Bespoke, Contemporary, Mid-century furniture, Organic, Eco furniture), charismatic lighting and refined accessories. Their designs range from traditional to more creative models and in-

clude dining tables, coffee tables, chairs, sideboards, lightening art and sculptures. “Jatra means journey, and our works will take you on a journey of beautifully blended and perfected Swiss detail, displaying expert craftsmanship, and Indonesian artisanship. At Jatra Design, we integrate various species of wood into our designs to produce truly unique pieces of furniture and art,” explains Ibrahimi. Form and matter of design Design aims to give meaning to what surrounds us. The form and matter of things reflect a purpose that only good, intuitive and functional design can communicate.
