‘Ketupat’
KLOE Hotel
-
The ‘Ketupat’ in Malaysia is a type of rice dumpling wrapped in a pouch of woven palm leaves. Aureole’s ‘Ketupat’ series takes inspiration from these hand woven palm leaves, adapting them in rattan.

This is a collaboration project with Tanoti, a Sarawak based social enterprise team. Rattan craft development is one of Tanoti’s community initiatives to introduce sustainable income generating opportunities to Sarawak’s remote forest communities. This collaboration explores adapting traditional crafts into new variations of home products.

Aureole’s ‘Ketupat’ pouf series is a collection of low seatings, expandable into bespoke dimensions base on requirements.
