re­bung, is Izyan Syamimi Zainol’s free­stand­ing Re­bung Shelves, also made of rub­ber­wood. The 26- year- old in­dus­trial de­sign stu­dent from Univer­siti Pu­tra Malaysia slanted the shelves, adding metal joints to en­hance stur­di­ness. The beauty of the de­sign is re­flected in the tech­nol­ogy used in bend­ing the wood.

“I found the re­bung mo­tif unique and felt it rep­re­sented the Malaysian iden­tity well. It has a strong pres­ence in Malaysian cul­ture in the form of tra­di­tional mo­tifs and pat­terns, and is also fea­tured on the Malaysian ring­git,” said Izyan, who hails from Malacca, in ex­plain­ing her de­sign.

Izyan was in­spired by na­ture in de­sign­ing her se­cond- prize- win­ning shelves.
