Illuminate Lighting Design Opens Jakarta Studio

Posted by Simon Berry

Jakarta, 19 July 2017 - Award-winning international architectural lighting design firm, Illuminate Lighting Design, opens its 8th studio globally, the first in Indonesia, at Jakarta this month. Heading the new studio is Ms. Anni Kurniawati, who previously tenured at Illuminate Singapore since 2014. Currently, the studio is working on the renovation of the The Grand Hyatt Jakarta. 

Commenting on the opening, Mr. Simon Berry, Partner of Illuminate said, "Indonesia is a unique country that has its own culture which never truly assimilated with international trends even though the customers' taste and standards have grown to be more sophisticated. Setting up a studio here, headed by Anni who is an Indonesian with solid international exposure enables us to have a closer understanding and collaboration whilst maintaining the international standards already established by Illuminate.”

With Illuminate Singapore, Ms Kurniawati has completed The Ritz Carlton Macau designed by Hirsch Bedner Associates. She also collaborated with Strickland Japan on the award winning Michelin star restaurant, Lai Heen. Together with her team, Ms Kurniawati is now working with JADE+QA on "The Quarry Hotel" in Shanghai - Intercontinental Shimao Wonderland, designing the masterplan landscape, facade for the cliff face and hotel and the interior of the hotel in addition to her projects in Indonesia.
