Moie teams up with Omar Khan Rugs to reinterpret traditional Eastern designs into a modern and contemporary collection.
With a multicultural heritage composed of Dutch, Chinese, Eygptian, Pakistani, and German influences, Omar Khan has naturally acquired a rich source of aesthetic inspiration resplendent in ancient symbols and historical motifs. These are then re-contextualised through modern abstraction and contemporary colour palettes for the homes of today. Khan draws upon his expertise in furniture design, interior design and illustration to develop rugs distinguished by their captivating compositions and exquisite craftsmanship.
The collaboration between Omar Khan Rugs and MOIE was set in motion to anchor a cohesive look into an eclectic range of MOIE pieces. Inspired by native Indonesian textiles such as Mega Mendung and Sumba Ikat, Udahara or “air” in Sanskrit is a modernised rendition of Eastern heritage that has been elevated with contemporary looks.
The result is a range of exquisite creations that would elevate any home. These include:
- Allegra, which takes after a piece of stone in marble quartz. This beautifully design captures the gradation between various shades of grey.
- Kadassa, inspired by textile iconography from Sumba in a combination of dark and light hues along with embossed patterns, much like a carving but presented through embroidery.
- Eka mixes the visual charm of Sumba fabrics and natural moss.
- Umbu takes its motif from the famed Mega Mendung batik depicting a swarm clouds that slowly blend into basic textures.
- Asmara is the twin soul of Umbu that is also inspired by Mega Mendung, but in a passionate red.
- Kartika is a tribal motif that works really well with a neutral palette.
- Iman marries design sensibility with geometric motifs.
- Ming Hua is inspired by the multiple eaves of a pagoda.
The Udahara Collection is available at MOIE Pacific Place, Jakarta.
