The event was kickstarted by Kenneth Sim of Admira, who provided insights into the selection of the right laminates to enhance design concepts. This interactive session was not only informative but also an eye-opener for students, as they explored the diverse applications and aesthetic possibilities of laminates in interior design. The workshop emphasized the importance of material selection in bringing design ideas to life, aligning with the practical aspects of interior design studies.

His extensive portfolio includes successful projects in various countries such as the U.S., China, Myanmar, the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, and Malaysia. Sharing his insights and approaches to design concepts with the students, Tung Ching Yew offered a rare glimpse into the creative process of a professional designer. His guidance and experience provided the students with a deeper understanding of how to integrate creativity with practicality, a crucial skill in the world of interior design.
