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.

Mission Completed!

This weekend our CEO Damien Dernoncourt crossed the finish line of a 150 mile race that spanned the Atacama Desert in Chile. Damien ran to raise money for Job for Life, a charity close to all of us at John Hardy, and finished 33rd out of 148 racers who made it through the grueling seven day race. Way to go Damien!

Reflecting Lights

Palu

Inspired by the billowing sails of Balinese fishermen's boats and the play of light on water, the Palu motif is distinctly John Hardy. The hand hammering technique creates a battered texture that deflects light subtly.
