Byo is a fashion brand focused on creating wearable experimental objects. Our mission is to distill the aesthetics of the future and showcasing the relevant ones to the present. We explore the boundaries of materials, shapes, and concept while maintaining the purpose and functionality of the finished product.
The designer is Tommy Ambiyo Tedji. An Industrial Designer who believes that good design (other than fulfilling its main function) deserves maximum exposure. It should be used as a mean of every individual's expression of self. It should be carried or worn for people to see. That description of what he wants to make is more commonly known as fashion design. He is heavily influenced by fantasy and science fiction, giving his designs a sense of futuristic aesthetic.
THE STORY OF INTERWEAVING
Since 2014, We have been exploring the concept of interweaving. Our ongoing mission is to take the skills of the traditional craftspeople to create something that is relevant for the present and the future.
Tommy has designed 4 different modular systems. Alchemy, Kawung, Hex Machina, and Allegro. Each with their own aesthetic appeal that attracts different set of eyes. All has been well received as its final form of bags and apparels.
