Low Lin Kiat turns 26 this year and is a fresh-off graduate from NUS with a degree in Industrial design. “I am trying my hands on different design disciplines,” he says, “from making figurines, to sculpting fiberglass furniture, to mural paintings. I am currently tackling design challenges of a different kind, working in the RND department for Shimano, a bicycle components maker.”

Come Fly With Me (above) is Low’s successful interpretation of the 2006 Furniture Design competition theme, FLY. “I wanted to create something I could relax in,” Low explains, “with a lot of cushions, for one person or more, something that was great to look at, and fun to sit in. At the same time I wanted to to create a freedom of form not often seen in furniture archtypes. And it worked well. That was for me the best part. Having made a prototype that was genuinely fun and welcomed by a wide age group and … well … even by other species.”
