Coming from this idea, the inspiration from the diversity of Indonesian culture is interpreted in a modern way throughout the interior design of Remboelan at Cilandak Town Square. It comes from Indonesia’s own architecture of traditional houses, the vibrant and meaningful national costumes, tropical touch that enhance the nature, creativity that depicted in handicrafts and flavorful spices used in the dishes. This result in design elements such as brown leather, terracotta planter, rattan weaving, green and gold color to accentuate to whole look.

The growth of Indonesian culture and heritage is highly influenced towards western style during the colonialism era. This too creates another aesthetic feature in the design such as the implementation of wall paneling in the booth seating area. The wall panel is accentuated with rattan weaving to emphasize the traditional yet modern feel. Another aesthetic keys in the interior design of Remboelan are beads shape, inspired from the traditional handicraft products. And the design was interpreted in the decorative hanging lamp in the main dining area, which also serves as the focal point of the space. A CNC wooden flower-like pattern also comes from one of the spices widely uses in Indonesian cuisines, Star Anise, and is implemented in the façade area of Remboelan. The whole look is then complemented with greeneries as a way to accentuate the tropical nature and also to bind all the elements into one identity.

Overall the interior design for Remboelan offers a warm and comfortable ambiance that gives the sense of familiarity with something that close to heart and home. While at the same time presents a rich and deep Indonesian culture that is full of flavor yet cozy and friendly.
