Another entry by firstprize winner Lim is the Dudoo easy chair made from rubber wood, cotton sash cord and high density foam fabric cushion. Inspired by the ketupat and
zongzi, rice dumplings wrapped in leaves made for special occasions by the Malay and Chinese communities, it features a simple wooden frame with arm support and extra comfort from a one- piece cushion that goes over the wooden frame.
“The idea is to transform the creative and unique way of using leaves in the design. Dudoo’s flexibility and interesting features makes it appealing for home and public areas,” he said.
