Fani Atmanti has designed merchandise set and stage backdrop for International Symposium on Javanese Studies and Manuscripts of Keraton Yogyakarta. This international symposium aims to celebrate the 30th coronation anniversary of Sri Sultan Hamengku Buwono X based on Gregorian Calendar, and to recall history, culture, and knowledge, from the Javanese manuscripts related with the Royal Court of Yogyakarta.
The merchandise set comprises notebook, printed cotton tote bag, vegetable tanned leather book cover, engraved pen, and bookmark. Each one (except the pen) has the light brown & grey color. The color tone was picked from the old manuscript. The tone were chosen to achieve the timeless allure and gorgeous.
The main concept is using one of the element from one old manuscript which has been returned by the British. Ambiya manuscripts has became one of the inspiration for the symposium. The illustration was taken from the ambiya manuscripts, it was redrawing (hand sketch) by Fani Atmanti and edited digitally. The tote bag is printed with the M symbol which is stand for Manuscripts. The vegetable tanned leather is hand-made and it is carefully crafted.

Fani Atmanti was invited to become one of the speaker in TSUKU X TSUKU event which was held on March 17th 2018 in Cafe Berger, Tsukuba City. She presented about her activities in Tsukuba University such as her research on cultural architecture in Nias Island Indonesia and its adaptive reuse, her experimental project "OMO Nias Series", her idea of Tsukuba City and she also explained how her hometown which is an old town in Java Island "Yogyakarta" influences her as a designer and architect.
After the presentations session, each presentator with some audience had a little discussion about Tsukuba City. Each group discuss about the future potential of Tsukuba City. Fani Atmanti's group thought that Tsukuba has great potential of future technology innovation and heritage cultural property but only few people have awareness to its potentials. Tsukuba Centre should be developed more to connect the hidden potential of Tsukuba City. So the idea is developing some open space in near Tsukuba Centre which invites people from Kanto area such to visit Tsukuba. The 広場／open space should be intriguing and invites youth to gather in Tsukuba Centre area.
Fani Atmanti presented "The OMO Project, A Magnificent of Asian Aesthetic" in Pecha Kucha Night Tokyo Vol.154. Her idea is turning scavenged timber of a great civilization into a contemporary everyday product.
Fani Atmanti is currently investigating structural concepts and exploring the adaptive reuse of a traditional wooden house in Bawomataluo village, Nias Island Indonesia. Her other creative pursuit involves a collaboration with a local carpenter and Singaporean designer Karyn Lim to create a bag she has named “OMO” which dons v-pattern cuts in its outer wooden skin, allowing it to transform from a flat surface into a three-dimensional volume.
Fani Atmantiは、インドネシア、二アス島Bawomataluo村の伝統的な木製家屋の、最適な再利用方法と、ストラクチャーコンセプトのリサーチをし ています。また、彼女のクリエイティビティへの探究心は、地元の職人とのコラボレーションや、シンガポールデザインナーKarynLimとの、木の皮をv-パターンにカットした素材を利用した、2Dから3Dへ変形可能な“OMO”というバックの共同制作にまで及んでいます。

On July 2-12th 2017, I got a chance to join 41st WHC session as part of Global Network of World Heritage Studies team. Our team joined as observer during the WHC session, joined some world heritage field trip in Krakow and initiated a global world heritage networking event in Krakow.
The World Heritage Convention was created in an effort to salvage cultural and natural heritage in a world where heritage sites were being damaged and threatened by armed conflicts, environmental destruction, and the side-effects of rapid economic development. Today, even though more than 40 years have passed since the adoption of the World Heritage Convention, those problems still persist, while the international community is also facing recently developed problems in the form of climate change, growing political conflicts, and a new rise of extremist ideologies.
At the same time, the methods and practices of heritage management, evaluation and protection do not keep up with the speed of the times. This is probably partly due to the fact that the methods for recognizing and evaluating heritage often keep the concepts of culture and nature, as well as tangible and intangible heritage, separated and handle them individually. In reality, culture and nature, tangible and intangible heritage, are all interlinked and interrelated, and it is necessary to develop methodologies that can comprehensively handle complex contexts.
With that ambition in mind, the Global Network of World Heritage Studies was created to exchange ideas, establish relations and build cooperation among people interested in heritage. Both students, experts, local stakeholders and other interested parties are welcome and together we can strive to develop new methodologies for heritage management and protection.
We aim to protect the valuable traces of the past for the future, and to give the next generation a chance to do the same.
