Last April 10, I started Furniture Apprenticeship together with Rohainie Mandi at LuonRattan Industries Inc.. The First day was very interesting to the very point that we did manyactivities within a day from learning everything about their furniture and company. But of courseI was very nervous as we are both supervised by our mentor Mr. Toni C. Lo. He was also thepresident of LRI Design Plaza holding 40 companies at Makati. He starts giving us the task offamiliarization and followed by Lectures of their company profile, furniture products,constructions, material, finish, process, and so on. He introduced us how do these elementscontribute to their High-End Furniture. We took down notes and proceed to the next tasks. Inever imagined at first that it was so complicated doing a single and simple furniture by processin order for it to be a high-end furniture. And since their design style is simple but elegant, wegot difficulties on the demand of creating the simplest design yet the spirit of aesthetics andfunction were both highlighted. I used what I had learned from school regarding the designprocess. Being exposed in the real world of designing furniture, I had found out that it
s lesscomplicated in terms of the design process than on what we do on school. For example asimple label would do than writing the complete Specification to be presented on the craftsmanand furniture maker.The field of learning became more interesting as we go through. On our Second day wevisited their factory and we learn so much of the process. The mentor also explains us the upsand downs of their company sale and how do they manage it. And of course he highlightedthateverything wont be successful without their furniture maker and craftsmen.Our one week in Luzon Rattan Industries Inc. is very interesting. We are trained to gofurther and make our designs possible considering all elements they teach us. It was verychallenging yet an unforgettable experience, especially when we are asked to come back if westill have time to work on their company as a furniture designer. We had so much fun.As we last our hours on Luzon Rattan Industries Inc., we then started Interior DesignApprenticeship at Best Partition and Office System Inc. with the left time within that day. I starthere with Sarah Jane Kitching. I became nervous as it was our first day with a new mentor. Westart familiarizing with their company
s profile and job descriptions. They explain to us that weare expected of being willing to learn and being trained and be able to help them in handling theprojects. We are asked to be a part of the projects. In order to meet the objectives of learning tothe real world, they give us the trust so we are demanded to be productive. They check ourabilities and knowledge in space planning, Communication skills, Design Ideas, other tasks andof course the knowledge in Auto-CAD and Sketch up. Since it
s still a training they let usimprove our skills in a short while and have us expose to the different task we have toexperience.
As we had client calls, we are sometimes sent to have client meetings with them andconducting ocular inspection with the guide of our head designer hired by our Mentor. After that,we are then assigned to work for the requirements of the space. Sometimes it
s residential andmostly of office layouts and designs. We are also doing the same process of designing fromScheming to Space planning of final proposed plan, next are approvals and then proceed to the3D layouts for presentation of perspective. I t was so fun working for those stuffs especiallywhen they approved your designs. Most of the time when done space layouts by some designer
didn’t met
the requirement of the space, following revisions is being assigned to the OJTapprentice.I
forget the funniest yet great experience I had in the company. That was when wevisited the client and I was asked by the head designer to open the presentation on laptop. Ifollow what he said without knowing that I will also be the one to present the design proposals. Itwas just funny thinking that
m doing it on the spot and not so ready at all because I was notreally asked to, before we arrived there. But yet, since we are part of some of the designproposals and as it went through the approval of our Interior Designer, I became able toexplained it and defend it to them. They are somewhat like Iranians because they are usingsomewhat like language that we
understand. They are the Admi Man Manning Inc;agencies of Marines Company. They want a renovation of their office space for some designthat is easy to work with. As the presentation is going, I was so worried with their facialexpression of something like not convinced. When the presentation ends, my worries are thengone as they said that
design was very nice
. As they followed asking the quotation of theDesign Proposals, I see how their eyes become larger saying that
the design was very nice,but the price is vey outrageous
. I expected their expression because I know that our companyis doing some strategically sales. We are already out of that confidential issues but they areexplaining well to us on how to be smart when it comes to sales. We are so glad to hear whatthey shared.Our Interior Design Apprenticeship ends by May 7 and it was so great. I
forget it.We really learn a lot.As we Start Architecture Apprenticeship with same company and with new ArchitectMentor, there are just little changes on the task being assigned. We are assigned more onrevisions of proposed Floor plan layouts and do some 2D drafting and Layouts. We are stilldoing site visit and monitoring some site works of their projects.Whenever we are sent to clients of companies and some residences we are always withour measuring tools. I now understand how important that stuff to be with the designer asalways. We are commuting most of the times but when our boss is not busy she is dropping usto the place we are asked to go. They are the one who spent expenses on commutes andsometimes for mirienda. We are still asked to conduct ocular inspections and followed by somesame tasks.
