Tan Chiam Teck

Tan Chiam Teck brings over almost half a century of woodworking and building expertise to IDSP Designworks, as Head of production facilities and projects. Known among colleagues and friends as Ah Teck, he started his career in 1973 at an early age of 16, as a woodworking apprentice under expert tutelage of renowned Shanghai master carpenter Lee Chung Fa. His dedication to the craft of fine woodwork is unwavering for the past 46 years.

Chiam Teck work ranges from the practical ‒ a small-scale; intricate altar for private clients to large scaled projects, which encompasses outfitting luxury homes, hotel and commercial spaces. Under Ah Teck’s hands, wood is paired with stainless steel or copper piping to create pieces that would not look out of place in an art gallery. “I love the old ways,” he says, “but I don’t rely on them. It’s important to keep pushing the boundaries.” His workbench is like a giant puzzle of traditional mortise joints ‒ “no glue or screws” ‒ that’s been fitted with ultra-modern Perspex drawers on imported Italian motion closed track and runners.

TEY PEE LIAN

Customer Relation Executive

"It starts with a confident client, and it requires an idea. The idea may be lateral and oblique to start with, but it soon evolves as a palette of materials, colours and moods emerges, and the familiar becomes exotic. Seeing our end product and the twinkle in the client’s eyes was extremely satisfying."
