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.
