Java Style

Front Cover
Editions Didier Millet, 2012 - Architecture - 208 pages
The landscape of the island of Java in the Indonesian archipelago is dominated by volcanoes and rice fields. However, the densely populated island also contains a profusion of houses and buildings which are equally picturesque. A rich history at the crossroads of Asia, a refined aesthetic and a tropical environment have led to the creation of Java style . This text celebrates the kaleidoscope of images including a 500-year-old mosque's pavilions, the cloistered courtyard of an 18th-century Chinese mansion and public buildings which form part of the largest example of Art Deco outside of Europe. Looking at the architecture, interiors, furniture and lifestyles that make up Java's visual culture, the book is intended as an inspiration for home-decorators, designers or those who hope to travel to the country.
