Harmanto's body of work is considered to be both simple and modern with qualities of charm and poetry. He takes his creative approach as an exploration of form and function, with the mindfulness of keeping the manufacturing process simple, and giving a design a chance to be mass produced effectively.
When conceptualizing his work, he looks for unconventional/innovative metaphors and ideas to outline form and function. Also, lateral thinking is always used to resolve design questions.
