Art of (Repurposing) Tree

Jeffrey Yang started collecting tree trunks and wood slabs with holes and cavities from saw mills five years ago, thinking that they look like art while others think of it as wastes. After two years of experimenting with his collection, he began learning techniques via the internet to make beautiful pieces of furniture from fallen raintrees in the city of Kuala Lumpur. Today, Jeffrey owns a factory and a showroom located in Shah Alam and is popular among designers in town. We learn Jeffrey’s passion in being heavily involved in the furniture production while managing the business.
