TAEHUN'S BALI DIARY: DAY THREE & FOUR

TAEHUN'S BALI DIARY: DAY THREE & FOUR

I had such a good time working with the John Hardy design team. They gave me a project that combined existing elements from the Naga Collection with Labradorite stones. Working in the beautiful design building was relaxing, energizing and inspiring. With a cup of cappuccino and kind help from the fellow designers, I got to learn a lot of things. I made rough sketches and a few were chosen so I can develop them more. It was very interesting to see the process of such a unique brand.

Thanks to everyone, especially to the design team who showed me the helpful references who encouraged me!

Thank you all!

TAEHUN'S BALI DIARY: DAY TWO

“We are greener every day.”

We went to Lebih Green Village to plant bamboo. My little bamboo plant that I planted today is part of the more than 600,000 seedlings donated by John Hardy. Being part of John hardy’s eco-friendly contribution to the Balinese society was truly rewarding.  I look forward to getting some design experience tomorrow.

Tribeca Ball Winner Taehun Discovers Bali

Taehun's first day at the compound

Taehun, a talented young designer from the New York Academy of Arts and the 2011 Tribeca Ball Winner, just arrived at our beautiful compound in Bali! She met up with John Hardy Creative Director and Head Designer, Guy Bedarida, who took her on the grand tour of the compound. Together they visited the Design Center and the Production where we put her right to work learning each piece is first sketched than painted with water colors as the essential first steps in the John Hardy production process. Later, they stopped by Three Mountain Workshop, the largest building on the compound, then ended the day with a Temple Ceremony held near the compound where Taehun experienced Balinese culture in one of its purest and most important forms.
