Muar is the foremost furniture hub in Malaysia with generating a great number of wood offcuts during the manufacturing process. The founder of Art Space thus had a brainwave-founded Art Space in which the rubber wood chips, offcuts and scrap upholstery fabric can be recycled.
In the woodwork class organised by Art Space, the participants will get to assemble, combine, pile up, stick and paint the wood in various lengths and sizes to make their one and only items for use or for fun. These unique pieces of woodwork are the great examples of how the participants
give full play to their creativity.
In addition, Art Space also offers a variety of board games for the visitors to have fun. In fact, not only do board games bring a lot of joy, they also increase family interaction, develop children’s interests, encourage teenagers’ self-exploration and become the common pastime of office workers. Board games have indeed become a bridge to connect people by making them put down their phones.
Art Space, whose mother company is Deep Furniture Sdn Bhd, hopes to share the history of how Muar became “the Furniture City of Malaysia” and the manufacturing process of furniture with every visitor via its Historical Corner of Muar Furniture Industry. It also provides rental room for groups and people who work in the cultural sectors, board games service and sells wooden crafts and furniture.
In order to promote the concept of PIY (Play It Yourself), Art Space organizes woodwork class for people of all races and ages, bringing a novel relaxation to Muar. It also encourages parent-child interaction by providing an opportunity for parents and children to enjoy the hands-on
麻坡，一座历史感厚重的老城，同时也是享誉国际的家具城。作为我国最大的家具生产重镇，麻坡拥有丰富的橡胶木资源，每年通过好几万吨的橡胶木制成的完成品家具为大马赚取可观的外汇收入，然而在制作过程难免汇余下许多废木料。于是，Art Space的创办人突发奇想，把原本当成废料的橡胶木碎、木块及沙发布碎重新回收并加以利用，开创了Art Space木工坊。
此外，我们也提供桌游服务，让大家可以体验桌游的乐趣。桌游带来的并不只有“好 玩有趣”而已，更是一家人的“同乐时光”、小朋友的 “兴趣培养”、青少年的“自我探索”、上班族下班后的 “共同消遣”。 只要是相聚的场合，桌游都适合成为大家放下手机，重拾关注彼此的桥梁。
Art Space由Deep Furniture Sdn Bhd创立，特别设立了麻坡家具故事走廊，把麻坡如何成为家具城的历史渊源以及家具的制作过程，透过这个空间宣扬给更多人知道。同时出租空间给团体及文创工作者、售卖小工艺品及家具、桌游等。
Art Space木工坊举办手作班并开放予各族群与年龄层的人士参与，希望藉此推广“PIY（Play It Yourself）乐在木中”的概念，替麻坡增添一股新颖的休闲体验风潮，让大人小孩藉此一同放下手机享受动手作的乐趣，增添亲子互动，点燃每一位参与者的好奇心并挑战自己的无限创意！也希望这中“PIY乐在木中”的新体验，也能吸引游客前来动手做属于自己的纪念品，为麻坡旅游业做出小小贡献。
