Modern architecture in an ancient quarter: clear geometric lines, steel and glass are the hallmark of the façade of the KEM Tower in Jakarta’s Kemayoran quarter. The office complex reaches up seventeen storeys into the sky. Clarity and purism are continued inside. With shiny bronze marble floors, honed travertine – and upholstered furniture from Walter Knoll, dressed in black. The pieces of furniture make a statement, timeless and elegant in their black garb.
