The word ‘langgam’ means a lot of things in Bahasa Indonesia, in English it directly translates to the words ; style, rhythm of a melody, method, behavior and culture. The project takes its title from this word as it encapsulates the various ways in which it aims to approach these different contexts within one practice. “Langgam” has transformed a lot throughout its conception and process but has always been grounded within the exploration and expression of material, cultural diaspora and new craft.

As the project stands now, it is a cultural and material based project that explores rituals of gathering, community, food and identity. Looking at the spaces and objects that surrounded this ritual, especially viewing tableware as cultural artefacts and the different implications of eating . There is a beauty in the everyday spaces of a dining table and the act of eating is also accompanied by the opportunity for play, transformatiom, evolution and the sharing of cultures. The end output of “Langgam” has culminated itself as a collection of cultural artefacts that marries both wood and metal which can be served, shared and enjoyed. This includes a series of wooden lathed dinnerware that can only be utilized in conjuction with a metal receptical, encouraging the act of togetherness over the sharing of a meal.
