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.
