Mu Objek is a Malaysian brand that works primarily with concrete.

What began as a side DIY project has become one of the most innovative Malaysian design brands to emerge in recent years. After the founder of Mu Objek, Lee Chau Shiang, began experimenting with concrete, he realized what a versatile material it actually was. The brand's star product is its concrete 'Pillow' candle holder. This home decor item looks soft and plush but in reality is made from concrete. The juxtaposition of texture is visually compelling and fun.

According to Shiang, "When we talk about cement or concrete, it gives people an impression of rigid, serious, cold, construction and so on, We love breaking that stereotype because the truth is, concrete can be fun."
