Surface Designer at Patricia Nurchandra Designs
ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Who do you design for and what is your style?
I design for my own brand, Patricia Nurchandra Designs. I also accept bespoke and custom designs requests as well as collaborations. Patricia Nurchandra Designs creates designs for patrons and clients who appreciate pieces with exotic elements, a contemporary streak, and conceptual value that project sophistication. They will enjoy the marriage between exotic character and contemporary edge. My style is exotic, sophisticated, and contemporary. Structure of patterns/prints also tend to be seamless.
What inspires you?
I am mostly inspired by traditional patterns and organic shapes. I draw my biggest inspiration from Indonesian arts and crafts - especially the details in their furniture, textiles, and sculpture.
What do you like about being a designer?
What I love about being a designer is the feeling of being able to cross boundaries and be free in expressing my visual and philosophical ideas. I also very much enjoy the magic of transforming one shape into a completely different one.
What else would you like us to know about you?
I am an animal advocate who champions animal rights and liberation. At times I'd incorporate this cause into my designs. My patterns also tend to be seamless and/or repeated. Being able to come up with an aesthetic out of a repeating shape, and then create a visual harmony and balance out of the repeated patterns is what challenges me as a designer.
