Amboina explores South Moluccan culture, 

by means of a pattern in marquetry. The 

pattern refers to different cultural aspects 

such as geography, semiotics, community, 

flora, fauna, history and politics. These are 

represented by abstracted symbols. Their 

importance is indicated by their position

and scale within the iconography of the

patterns.

 

The set of tables, with the pattern decorating 

the tabletops, take a lead from Art Deco, as 

modern reinterpretation of traditional 

marquetry craft. The use of distinct materials, 

such as wood and bronze, add to the cultural

values represented in the pattern.
