Budiman Ong established OCK Design in 2008 and it driven by the possible use od endless materials ans seeing how far he can push them to reveal their unique character. I was stopped in my tracks when I saw the grouping of Alur pendants. They were like a series of clouds floating in space and upon close inspection, I was amazed to see they were actually white zippers that has been sewn together and sculptes into these forms.
The Lipat and Thistle lights were also fascinated as they were made from Linen and leather and folded into origami like shape. Each piece was indvidually and carefully crafted, taking many hours of patience, skill and labour. So beautiful and unlike anything I had seen before.
