Indonesian-born product designer Alvin Tjitrowirjo has built a solid and respectable career over the last couple of years. He has distinguished himself from the rest by remaining truthful to the place from whence he came. His choice of materials and his involvement in the preservation of local heritage reflect his love and respect toward the Indonesian tradition. Beyond that, his breadth of work shows that design is more than mere ornamentation; that it can be an integral, interactive part of people's lives.
Initially graduating from RMIT University in Australia, Alvin Tjitrowirjo has always had a penchant for art and design, stretching back to his primary school years, when he was a budding car enthusiast.
Placing a strong importance on creating a distinct brand of Indonesian design that draws from the country's centuries old love of art and by utilizing local artisans and craftsmen, Alvin has since continued to spread his influence on the local design scene. Alvin is now firmly based in Jakarta, continuously building and expanding his furniture brand alvinT and leading his design firm alvinT Studio.
