Biography

Jackie has over a decade of experience in the interior and furniture design industry. He is also the founder of Singapore-based furniture design studio, Triple Eyelid Studio, which was established in 2014.

The studio designs and produces bespoke upcycle furniture using waste wood materials, mainly pallet wood and locally fallen trees. While he expresses exclusiveness through designs, he also seeks to raise the awareness of reducing industrial waste. The studio was also commissioned to design and set up exhibition booths and structures for Earth Hour 2019. All structures were made of reclaimed pallet wood and reused after the event.

Jackie’s teaching journey started in Singapore Polytechnic in 2015. He also actively provides sustainability workshops to various primary schools to promote environmental sustainability awareness for the future generation.
