Young Presidents' Organization Dinner in Bali

On Friday, July 5 our CEO Damien Dernoncourt and our Creative Director and Head Designer Guy Bedarida hosted a candlelit dinner at the compound. Six members of the Young Presidents' Organisation (YPO) attended; the group included artists, designers and business owners in Bali as well representatives of the John Hardy team. Traditional Indonesain dishes like Nasi Kuning (yellow rice) set the atmosphere of a warm Balinese village, completed with an amazing musical performance that included a huge set of bamboo instruments that called Jegog and the softer melodies of the Rindik, a smaller set of bamboo instruments.
