Founded in 2006, alvinT is a Jakarta-based furniture design company that amalgamates Indonesia’s rich cultural heritage and artisanal approach with contemporary sensibilities. Authenticity remains the driving force behind our innovation. While we revere tradition, we would like our products to stand as a testament of character in an increasingly homogenized world. As much as design should be seen, it should also be felt. All of our products are hand-made by skilled local artisans because we believe in delivering honest products that inspire genuine engagement, transcending the tethers of trend and time.
We strive to stay true to our cultural values and roots and its values through contemporary design approach to preserve the culture and to keep them relevant to today’s society.
We hope to become the first and popular choice for discerning individuals with an appreciation toward Asian design sans the ethnic feel. We wish to exemplify the potential and excellence of Asian design on a global scale.
