The Father and Son Collaboration
Ng Chin Hock
Father, Founder, Master Craftsmen
Grown-up in Labis, a Kampung in Johor Malaysia, he grew his passion for furniture making and honed this acquired skill since the age of 12. For the past 45 years, he always believes in keeping his team small to ensure the most delicate workmanship for every project he builds. Today, as the master craftsman, he pilots and takes ownership in his works.
Ng Ci En
Son, Interior Designer
Since young, he has been his father’s apprentice in a small carpentry workshop. He followed him to site surveys and client's meeting for discussion on details of the renovation. Growing up, he learnt to appreciate the beauty in natural materials, their assembly, details and their relation to the human body and the extensions that form spatial elements.
Graduated from Diploma in Space and Interior Design course offered by Nanyang Polytechnic, he practised Interior design in a local boutique design firm which allows him to gain experience in many aspects of the industry. Pushing forward, he made use of his leisure time in National service to rent a mini-workshop and started the brand mu.ke, focusing on his explorations on traditional woodworking and joinery techniques. Geared with this area of expertise, he partnered with Passion Woodworks, a local woodworking studio that specialises in bespoke solid wood furniture.
