The multi- func­tional Muk Sofa by in­te­rior de­signer Lim Bo Qiang is a mod­u­lar unit made from rub­ber­wood, with fab­ric cush­ions.

The con­tem­po­rary de­sign comes with at­tach­able drawer stor­age below the seat, a side ta­ble and 2+ 1 seat­ing ( which can be sep­a­rated) suit­able for the home and pub­lic ar­eas.

“Muk is de­rived from the Chi­nese word mu, which means wood. It is in­spired by the tra­di­tional hu­man life­style where peo­ple use straw mats for most of their daily ac­tiv­i­ties,” said the 27- year- old Lim from Batu Pa­hat, Jo­hor.

“So I am tak­ing that tra­di­tional life­style and adding a mod­ern twist to it. Be­sides that, I am also bring­ing the mod­u­lar con­cept of seat­ing to homes and pro­vid­ing more mo­bil­ity with it.

“With liv­ing spa­ces get­ting smaller th­ese days, peo­ple need to be more or­gan­ised. Muk will al­low peo­ple to move around eas­ily yet serve its full func­tions,” said Lim af­ter the award cer­e­mony held last week at the Ma­trade Ex­hi­bi­tion and Con­ven­tion Cen­tre, Kuala Lumpur.
