Lapis / Side Table


LAPIS draws inspiration from the traditional, Peranakan delicacy, “Kueh Lapis” which is widely appreciated by the local Singaporeans as a hearty snack. A unique way of savouring this colourful, sweet dessert is to peel off each layer and appreciate the thin slices individually. Drawn in by this gesture, LAPIS has 3 layers of storage which can be accessed by peeling off the “coats” of this side table. This is made possible with the usage of magnetic sheets and a mild steel frame; magnetic attraction.
