From Timber To Tables

Millions of Malaysians are unfortunately all too familiar with the struggles that have come along with nearly a year and a half of working from home (WFH). Many have reported a drain in productivity and a depletion of creativity alongside rising instances of musculoskeletal issues such as backaches with long hours in front of the laptop and poor ergonomic choices.

Balak’s - a homegrown furniture brand hailing from Penang is well aware of these struggles with its founder Lucas Eng, personally experiencing these problems and seeing them in his parents as well. This is why Lucas took the decision to pivot his business strategy and launch Balak’s with the purpose of handcrafting bespoke premium furniture that prioritises ergonomic functionality to energise, inspire and invigorate.
