Ushers by Design worked with owner Ilario Colli to create a design that reflected the philosophical ethos of the business, which meant creating a welcoming space for relaxation and quiet contemplation. The design also includes elements of drama and revelation. Additionally, every material used — including every piece of furniture and decor — was sourced within Indonesia.
Zones were used to reflect different moods and states of mind. There is a zone for learning with books and shelves, a zone for relaxing with a chaise lounge and low tables, a zone for interaction that features a long pomegranate banquette dominated by a huge black-and-white mural, and a zone for appreciation and affection called the Hug Spot.
