Therefore, the present study aims to identify the design criteria, to design and to develop a bedside table with hidden compartment inspired by geometric. The questionnaire was distributed via Google Form to the 60 respondents aged 25 years old and above in Kuala Lumpur to obtain the design criteria. Following that, the design and prototype fabrication processes were carried out in accordance with the design criteria obtained.
