The origins of the partnership between Cipì and OCK date back to their accidental meeting at the Jakarta fashion week. Half fashion half design, OCK products made in flax, cotton or even zips remind of the sophisticated and sinuos lines of the coolest fashion collections. Cipì , in concert with Ong Budiman, the OCK founder and designer, carefully select the products, as to always amaze its customer, promoting new deisgners and materials, choosing to promote not to follow a trend, by placing on the market a line of products which meets the most elegant and innovative taste.
At ONG CEN KUANG we create original, hand-crafted pieces that let the unique materials’ characters to speak for themselves. Our creations are timeless and innovative, fusing traditional craft with modern elements, resulting in pieces filled with stories and soul. Brand founder Budiman Ong has always been drawn to lighting – the irreplaceable element in any home. Keen to follow his passion in exploring different materials’ unique characters, signatures and his passion for modern designs, created ONG CEN KUANG in 2008, designing and building lighting fixtures by hand, one at a time, in our studio in Bali, Indonesia. Trained in Gray’s School of Art, Robert Gordon University in Scotland, Ong’s Asian heritage fuels his inspiration and his western education shapes his aesthetics and knowledge in design.
