Desmond Lim is a Malaysian born designer whose work is rooted in the creation of physical and emotional durability in contemporary furniture. Through a deep respect for materials and processes, Desmond takes an experimental and hands on approach to discover the hidden potential of both traditional and future resources.
In his furniture, Desmond explores an interdependent relationship that exists between the user and object. By interpreting human-like qualities such as balance and poise, the furniture objects he creates seek a strong sense of sculptural identity and personality.
// The Poise Collection
The Poise Collection features a sculptural series of tables and seats that poetically join the warmth of ash hardwood to the weightiness of cast stone. The furniture pieces make use of a unique joinery method to bring a startling yet subtle joining of two contrasting materials and processes. The result is an uncanny furniture collection that make dramatic use of their material qualities to bring an unexpected stability, creating a visual language of balance and poise which determines the identity of the collection.
