ABOUT LAPISAN

LAPISAN means layers in Malay, the embodiment of our mission to analyse the layers that make our world. Every idea starts with a problem, and as we enter a more intricate era, it becomes ever more important to understand the issues at its core.

Mengupas lapis demi lapis, translates to peeling layer by layer.

By peeling through the layers, we aim to articulate perspectives on the spaces we inhabit and to engage with the many constructs of urbanity. From train stations to apartment blocks, iconic designer chairs to spontaneous finds at the local food court, we take notice of the things that affect how we behave and react.  

LAPISAN is a digital platform where like-minded observers discuss and share their opinions about culture and lifestyle. With LAPISAN, we aim to provide layers of commentary on architecture and all things design with the aim to develop a better understanding of the complex world we live in. At our core, we hold the simple belief that a better quality of life can be achieved with the right ingredients at play.
