Play around with material and enjoy the design process. In designing a product, designer always like behold into shapes, standard size, ergonomic aspect etc. While the selection of material is always later. Exploring the material and manufacturing process to produce design especially furniture design, I found that we have the flexibility in designing products. Understand the process, enjoy it. We will get why designing is fun. For instance, Screw-pine Leaves Stool (SL Stool) designed in 2017, is an experimental piece. It is made of Screw-pine Leaves as known as daun mengkuang in Malay. Screw-pine leaves is widely used in handicraft industry not only in Malaysia also, several other countries in Southeast Asia. The usability of screw-pine leaves as weaving material for necessity product is heritage. However, as a young and active generation weaving technique is daunting my patience. Therefore, by using the same material, I put to the test the usability of screw-pine leaves is various such as furnishing material (as shows in SL Stool; the seat surface) and a different look – no weaving. Morale of the study, during the process, be comfortable would bring a clear vision and eventually a better result. In sha Allah.
