APART FROM ARCHITECTURE AND INTERIOR DESIGN, MALAYSIA-BASED STUDIO BIKIN’S EXPERTISE ALSO ENCOMPASSES A FURNITURE AND HOME DECORATION PRODUCT LINE THAT GOES BY THE NAME OF KEDAI BIKIN.
Two designers and the studio’s founding members, Farah Azizan and Adela Askandar, whose work combines contemporary design with Malaysian local craftsmanship such as rattan weaving and handmade products made of rubber, carry out the supervision of the main concept of the brand. On top of that, the duo collaborates with other Asian designers to create quality and affordable design products, resonating success back to the local craftsmen and signifying that their skills and wisdoms are still highly valued. The continually growing Kedai Bikin brand recently opened its first flagship store in Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur, along with the launch of LAIN’s batik bedding set as the new collection from Bikin Home & Living Products, Bendang Studio’s ceramic wares and a promotional discount that makes you want to book the next flight to KL right then and there.
