We have chosen to be 100% transparent when it comes to sustainable production. So, in collaboration with the organization “TREES 4 TREES“ , we have set up a system enabling your customers to scan a QR code that comes with their new piece of furniture and get information about the geographical location of the newly planted tree.

Customers can feel confident that you are helping to respect the planet in collaboration with sustainable producers and companies. We are faithful to the raw materials of Indonesia, which means that the furniture is produced to a quality that doesn’t compromise on the craftsmanship or the materials available in Indonesia. Furthermore the Indonesian tradition and artistry handed down from generation to generation, blended with design, creates the modern lines and pieces you see in the LIBRA Ω range.


We are guided by its Danish roots but has its actual company base in Indonesia. The company supplies high-quality outdoor furniture to many destinations, including Denmark. Today, the company is run from the province of Yogyakarta on the island of Java, where it has entered into a joint venture with a furniture manufacturer who produces the vast majority of the pieces. This ensures that the factory knows the company’s quality requirements and is able to live up to them.

We have carefully selected furniture manufacturers to produce the remainder of its products. It sets them the same requirements, and knows that they are able to meet them.
We are also taking part in furniture fairs and creates projects in collaboration with its partner, interior designer Marco Janson from Hamburg Germany, thus engaging ideas and concepts from Denmark, Germany and Indonesia. We are proud to be a sustainable and successful company with exports worldwide, including Australia, North & South America, Europe & Asia.


The island of Java can be divided into a western part specialising in rattan production and weaving, and central Java, which specialises in wood carving and timber production. Having some of the remaining products made in the western area and others in the central part not only ensures overall quality, but also means that specialists in the various crafts have been found and employed to make our product the best it can be.


In addition to environment, protection of wildlife, sustainability, quality, human rights, education, working and payment conditions are all values that are important to us and our production activities, and this is nothing the people at LIBRA Ω are willing to compromise on.

Marco Janson

Hello, my name is Marco Janson.

I am an interior decorator and designer.

Ever since I was a child, I have been interested in the beautiful things in life. Of course that also includes the history and culture of countries around the world.

As I grew, my passion for shapes and colors, as well as furniture from different eras and of different styles developed. This passion has enabled me to further my abilities as an interior decorator and designer.

For more than 22 years, I have been independent and gainfully self-employed. During my extensive travels abroad, I have benefited from impressions gathered in the environments and cultures around me. In Indonesia, I was lucky enough to find a second home, a place where I am happy to be anchored.

My love for Indonesia is not only related to the many varieties of wood and other fascinating materials one can work with, but also about the care taken with traditional craftsmanship, the skill of the people who make our furniture ideas into objects of use and pleasure.

My special thanks at this point go to Helle Nielsen, founder and owner of the company PT. Libra By Palma International.

The secret of my success is that I am able to make dreams come true – transform ideas into reality – and that I love my work!

Helle Nielsen

a self-taught female designer with no formal education in design but loads of creativity. She learned the ropes online and through trial and error, diving into graphic and product design with passion. Helle’s knack for thinking outside the box and drawing inspiration from her life experiences led her to win a top design award. Her story challenges the idea that formal education is the only way to make it in design, showing that raw talent and determination can go a long way.

In 2003, she embarked on her new venture, co-founding “Palma Furniture” alongside an Indonesian partner in Jakarta. Afterwards, when the opportunity come up to establish a foreign company in Indonesia, her Indonesian partner chose to depart, prompting them to rebrand the company.

As the company relocated from Jakarta to Yogyakarta to be closer to the production facilities, she decided to rename the company “Libra by Palma International.” The name ‘Libra’ is a nod to the zodiac sign under which the company was born. With this transformation, the company began the journey to develop its unique furniture designs under the brand name Libra.

Today, Libra by Palma International stands as a testament to resilience, adaptability, and the pursuit of excellence in the world of furniture design and production.
