Eager. Complex (NOT Complicated). Passionate. 30-year-old Al Rashid loves to explore. He admires aesthetics and makes it an essential value in his designs. Born and raised in Perak, Al Rashid has found his calling as an academician at Fakulti Teknologi Kreatif dan Warisan, University Malaysia Kelantan (UMK).
“Specialising in Furniture Design, I began my design foundation from the school of Art and Design, Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) in 2009. After which, I pursued my post-graduate study in Design Technology (Furniture Design) and completed with flying colours in 2012.
As a stepping stone, my exhibition with MTIB at Salone Satellite, Milan for 2013, 2014 and 2015 has given me a good exposure and a fresh look at the world of furniture. I was also selected for New Olds Exhibition 2014 by Goethe Institute, Galeri Petronas, Malaysia on February 2014 and was invited as a presenter to share my knowledge, experience and products through Design Talk by MTIB.
No going back, no looking back.
I like to dig deeper. I like nature. My inspiration comes from these passion for more understanding and for my love of nature.History. Culture. I am always fascinated with these elements and I believe the future of creative designs will be drawn from our fascination with these elements. Steel. Rattan. Wood. Mixed Fiber Compound. I am always open for any new material to experiment with.”
