Kotak (“Hard Box” in Bahasa Indonesia) is a paper-cut sculpture made by color paper, Origami format, that people can modify and build as they choose.

I was invited by the Beijing Institute of Fashion Technology (BIFT) to participate in the event of 2010DIDF &CINMAI, co-organized and sponsored by People’s Government of Wuhan, Wuhan University of Technology, Huazhong University of Science and Technology and Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design, Germany. In order to show a free project over there I came up with the Kotak project. The idea was to use the identity of the company I was working in that time Schwann as a playground for art and crafts. The letter “S” is the logo of the company, this letter turn as a sculpture in Kotak, also an object to play with, something that can be made of different materials and scales. Also the process of building the object was filmed and used to make a video. Everybody loved it!
