Poise is a debut collection by London based Malaysian designer, Desmond Lim, whose work is rooted in the creation of physical and emotional durability in contemporary furniture. Through a deep understanding of materials and processes, Desmond takes an experimental and hands on approach to discover the hidden potential both of traditional and future resources.

The Poise Collection launched at the at the Central Saint Martins Degree Show Two in June 2019.


The Poise Collection features a series of tables and seats that poetically join the warmth of ash hardwood to the weightiness of cast stone, forming a sculptural yet practical furniture series.
