"Based on our experience, most architects begin with non-structural elements. I think it's very important for us to have knowledge of the bamboo elements as whole," said Indra Setia Darma, studio founder.

In Indonesia four very abundant species is Bamboo Apus (Gigantochloa apus), Bamboo Petung (Dendrocalamus asper), Bamboo Cendani (Phyllostachys aurea) and Bamboo Wulung (Gigantochloa atroviolacea). Each species has different characteristics and suitable applications.

Bamboo Petung has large diameter and very solid usually used as building structures and lately also used as the main component of laminated boards. Bamboo Apus has diameter ranging from 5-8cm and is often used to wall panels, woven and usually as the roof battens.

The use of bamboo panels as raw material to produce unique impression of wall making and artwork touch. Whole bamboo panels, half bamboo panels, split bamboo panels and bamboo woven coverings impressive facade design as passive decoration.

Eco-friendly products are superior to ordinary wood products. Bamboo is lighter but flexible, more resistant to pressure from several types of wood commonly used such as oak, maple and more. Bamboo is naturally resilient to moisture making it more difficult stains.

"Bamboo is "timber" environmentally friendly because it grows faster than trees perennials. Bamboo can be harvested in sustainable manner without having to kill clumps, while timber harvest should be cut down trees," said Darma.

Bamboo clumps can be harvested continuously without losing their function as carbon sinks, water binding and protective soil from erosion. Bamboo grows in almost all islands in Indonesia. In fact, in many places very abundant bamboo resource.

The strength of bamboo can be juxtaposed with steel. Characters are supple and elastic fibers as shock-resistant structure, so it gives sense of security and reduce the risk of material loss when hit by earthquake that shook Indonesia frequently.

Bamboo material of cultural and aesthetic, giving natural feel and friendly to nature. Different types, sizes, colors and characteristics can produce work that is unique and beautiful for display.

Bamboo can also hold up for decades as wood preservation process. Without preservation will be vulnerable edible bamboo powder beetles and termites because it has high sugar content and bamboo will only last for maximum 3 years.

"Our Bamboo is much more durable than bamboo without preservation. If not preserved can only last 1-2 years, we have processed bamboo and can be preserved for several decades," said Darma.

"We use variety of ways to process from traditional means such as soaking in water for several months until the modern way system save time as bucherie pressure pump, diffusion, butt end soak, and pressure tanks," said Darma.

"In addition to serving preservation focus, we also serve in the design and construction," said Darma.

Bamboo design has almost the same physical properties of wood in general. But cylindrical shape and has cavity in the middle is different from that in the general solid wood, so it requires expertise and specialized knowledge in construction, especially in connection and bonding techniques.
