Color plays a distinct role
in shaping the visual culture of a city or country.
It is one of the oldest forms
of communication known,
and we are attracted to it
like magpies to a shiny object.
Color is simple and pure.
Morocco is one of the few places on earth
where you can have one foot on the biblical past
and the other in the 21st century.
Always dream to visit the place.
Imagine my excitement
while a few months back,
the owner of Eat&Eat asked me and my hubby
to design and decorate the 6th Eat&Eat
with Moroccan theme.
And the searching began.
From the history of their bold colors
to Alhambra, shouks, Kasbahs,
splendid decorative artifacts on their lamps,
mosaics of colored glass,
elegant shapes of Morocco's pottery,
even woodwork that intricately monumental
all and all were humbled me so much
for the past couple months.
How can I re-create the ambience
of such detailed and amazing place
In the time period given to us,
we tried the best we can do.
Hopefully you will enjoy the place.
Here is Eat&Eat no.6
at Mal Kota Casablanca, Kuningan-Jakarta
But that it has survived until our times,
that we can see it, we can touch it,
we can mix with its people,
is a miracle that never ceases to astonish.
