Sporting a Scandinavian name but inspired by Chinese traditional roof architecture is the Skog Table by university student Jun Lee Kai Chun. The interior, furniture and product designer came up with a work desk using a combination of wood and contrasting laminated white finishing.
It incorporates a white board panel for jotting notes, lift- up drawer for storage, arch shape edge to prevent things sliding off the table and a cable organis- er system.
“Scandinavian aesthetics is the trend in modern living lifestyle. ‘ Skog’ is the Swedish word for wood. I like to draw whenever I travel but it is often difficult to find a work space that fits my sketch book, laptop and art stuff. I was truly attracted by the traditional Chinese curved roof architecture that I saw in Penang, and that’s how SKOG was inspired and designed,” said Lee, 23, from Gurun, Kedah.
