The New Direction of Indonesia’s Creative Culture
Leonard Theosabrata comes from a long line of furniture makers and inherits his love of the craft from his father, Yos, who spent 30 years in the business. After graduating from art school in Pasadena, Leo created his own line of furniture under the Accupunto brand and started the LTD studio focused on interior and product design.
His latest venture is The Goods Dept, a project he launched with several friends to discover talented local designers and provide them a sophisticated space in which to sell their goods at affordable prices. In this talk, Leo makes the case that there’s no time like the present for Indonesians to make their mark on the global design scene.
