WOHA launches a Luxury Lifestyle Furniture line
The prolific duo behind the Singapore-based architectural practice who are responsible for the luxurious Alila Villas Uluwatu resort in Bali, have now launched WOHAbeing, a Luxury Lifestyle furniture line which consists of six collections: Bintan, Ulu, Corak, Oli, Diaspora, and Sampan.
The line reflects WOHA’s ethos of simplicity, modernism and sustainability whilst creating a multitude of references, history and connections into a single elegant profile.
The Bintan Collection consists of two families of chairs, the crab series and the turtle series, designed to co-exist and complement each other. The cushions are made in coloured leather and robust Indian cotton, hand-printed in a custom wood-block design.
Ulu features modernist design with motifs drawn from Bali’s ancient cultures. The Ulu series combines refined, tapered solid wood chairs with a range of tables, lamps and accessories based on Dong Son rain drums and Hindu colonettes.

Corak is a collection of rugs designed with a rich tradition of Asian textiles and patterns.
Oli takes its name from the Sanskrit word for the “glow of a lamp” and is inspired by ancient Hindu and Buddhist sacred geometry and architecture to create a contemporary series of lamps.
Diaspora, a collection of tableware, combines ancient shapes from Chinese culture with contemporary colours. It will launch later this year at the National Design Centre in Singapore.
Sampan is a bathroom range that is designed with the traditional boats found in Singapore in mind to create a series of baths and vanities.
