Abie Abdillah, a young Indonesian designer, has created Doeloe Lounge Chair and Pretzel Bench. Rattan is a unique material that mainly came from South East Asia, especially from Indonesia which was claimed 70% of worldwide needs for rattan materials are from the country own resources. Why does rattan unique? Rattan as a plant could grow more than 100 meters long and have 400 various kind of species which about only 8% of them are already explored  and used as raw material for human needs products.

The other uniqueness of Rattan are the characteristics  of the material itself, which are strong, and able to be bend. But yet, it was tricky to create a piece of furniture from rattan materials, since the stretchy characters make them need to have various braces support to keep the furniture strong and  steady.
