Sheraton Design Series with Detalia Aurora

APPLEONE Prop­er­ties Inc., through its sub­sidiary The Res­i­dences at Sher­a­ton Cebu Mac­tan Re­sort, kicked off the “In­spired De­sign Through Crafts­man­ship” series last Oct. 15 at The Res­i­dences’ Pavil­ion lo­cated in Punta En­gaño, Mac­tan.

Start­ing the series is the col­lab­o­ra­tive ef­fort with De­talia Aurora. The com­pany has been in the in­dus­try in for more than 20 years, spe­cial­iz­ing in in­door out­door fur­ni­ture and home ac­ces­sories. Com­bin­ing mod­ern tech­nol­ogy, tra­di­tional Filipino crafts­man­ship and use of in­dige­nous ma­te­ri­als, it prides it­self in its deep un­der­stand­ing that lo­cal can com­pete at a global level.

It was a one-day ex­pe­ri­en­tial event at­tended by me­dia, per­son­al­i­ties and stu­dents. Peo­ple were treated to a fur­ni­ture de­sign ex­hibit, in­flu­encer talks and a walk-through—in­ter­ac­tive demon­stra­tion by the ar­ti­sans in three work sta­tions be­gin­ning with the process of rat­tan-mak­ing in­clud­ing us­ing a blow­torch to ma­nip­u­late the look of the ma­te­rial, the com­plex process of stone in­lay, and weav­ing, one of the most well-known and pre­ferred tech­niques.

Through this ef­fort, it hopes to shine a spot­light on Philip­pine-made prod­ucts, par­tic­u­larly Ce­buano crafts­man­ship, from the con­cep­tu­al­iza­tion, tech­nique to the end re­sult. This is part of The Res­i­dences’ goal to cel­e­brate.
