These pieces of cheap furniture are made of "waste" woods (woods that was used as boxes and containers). They are made and sold at the corner of Jalan Tamansari and Jalan Gelap Nyawang near the ITB (Bandung Institute of Technology) campus. Students coming from outside the city like to buy them for their apartments not only because they are a lot cheaper than the ones sold in the furniture shops, but also because they can be made to order. Being cheap, they can also be left or given away when the students finish their studies and leave the city.
Although they are cheap and made of waste woods, I think they actually look quite good and are of decent quality. I still have a book shelf that I bought from this place a long time ago.
