UCSI University Interior Architecture Students win MIID Furniture Design Competition
A detachable and eco-friendly chair captured the attention of the judges at the recent Malaysian Institute of Interior Designers
Themed ‘Fantastic Futuristic, the MIID 8 Belas competition featured notable works from architecture and design students of 20 public and private universities.
Their innovative chair design was themed “Flexible Relaxation” and utilised old planks and discarded fabrics to ensure it was eco-friendly.
As students, mobility was a major concern and they designed the chair to be easily dismantled and reassembled. According to Lim, the challenge was making the chair sturdy without using a single nail or screw.
“Our first design was an S-shaped mould with screws but it was unstable. However, after much trial and error, we overcame the flaws, making it easy to detach and reattach,” he said. He added that the rigorous lectures and tutorials he attended at UCSI were very useful.
The design edged out submissions by other universities including Taylor’s University, Sunway University and KBU International College.
When asked how they felt about winning the award, the students flashed a grin and said, “Surprised”.
Ting and Gee added that it gave them a sense of contentment knowing that their efforts have been recognised by others.
“The key behind the achievement is wise teachings from our lecturers,” said Lim.
“They deserve to win. Four weeks of hard work really paid off,” said the two team advisers and lecturers Ms Rosidah Abdul Ghani and Mr Zulkifli Husin.
Winning the competitions speaks volumes of the quality of UCSI’s architecture programmes as the competition organiser MIID is the national institute representing the interior design profession in Malaysia.
