With Sydney Indesign 2015 only weeks away – 13-14 August – we wanted to share with you a few highlights from Singapore Indesign 2015 and give you taste of what you can expect from this year’s event.
July 15th, 2015
We were thrilled to hold Singapore Indesign Intimate 2015 – a brand new iteration of our well-known landmark event in Singapore. This year the format changed. We took the opportunity to bolster the increasingly strong ties within Singapore’s design industry by bringing our community together in just two locations; Red Dot Design Museum and National Design Centre.
We brought our community up close and personal with the content and industry identities that are shaping design in Singapore. It was a great to see our design community pausing, connecting and weaving new threads of knowledge and interaction over the two day event.
We were also delighted to introduce the Design Conversation series to Singapore. It was our first ever staging of an industry-focused panel-based discussion series in Singapore, and our line-up of regional game-changers offered sharply focused insights and thought-provoking conversation.
Many of our Singapore Indesign Intimate Exhibitors will be returning to Sydney Indesign 2015, including Cult, Flos, Kebony & Mafi, Scandinavian Business Seating, Schiavello, Wilkhahn, Woven Image, Youmans Capsule and Waldmann Lighting. We were thrilled to see such a great array of exhibitors in Singapore, and we are looking forward to their return at Sydney Indesign 2015.
We’d like to say a massive thank you to our Singapore Indesign sponsors; Merx and Woven Image – for their unwavering dedication to our industry – Scandinavian Business Seating, Republic of Fritz Hansen, 2tec2, Deco Expression, Red Dot Design Museum, National Design Centre, DesignSingapore Council, kikki.K, Peatix, Temasek Polytechnic, Design Hotels, The Design Society, Grafunkt, Far East Flora, Stella Artois, Events Partner, Expat Living and ACG Media.
We hope that you will join us for our next event, Sydney Indesign 2015, which is only weeks away – August 13-14. We are running three conversation series; WorkLife presented by Indesign Magazine, LiveLife Design Hunter Series presented by Habitus Magazine and DQ Round Table presented by DQ Magazine. These talks present an excellent opportunity to network with your design community, learn from industry leaders and be part of conversations that shape our industry. There are limited seats across these events, so be sure to register your place quickly so you don’t miss out.
WorkLife 2015 is a series of panel discussions among industry experts and global thought leaders exploring ‘The Future of the Workplace’, with an emphasis on translating insights to the local market. Our program of panel discussions will see thought leaders come together with the local design industry to share their insights on designing workplaces and provoke lively, intelligent debate around contemporary workplace design.
LiveLife Design Hunter Series is a unique conversation series that explores living in design. The series will span four topics including; Art, design & architecture. The intersection of creativity, Longevity & Icons: Is the age of the icon over?, Longevity & Icons: Is the age of the icon over? and Future of the Home: Models of living in the future.
DQ Magazine will host design’s heavy hitters with a distinctly Sydney flavour at the DQ Round Table talks. Together, DQ and panellists dissect and offer a voice for all facets of the industry including cross-industry practice, power personalities and learning creativity. Topics include Australia’s Trend Du Jour: Cross-Industry Practice, Power Personalities: What Brand Of Leadership Is Dominating The Australian Design Community? and Can You Learn To Balance Creativity & Business?
These talks will take place at Galleria and in showroom locations across the two event days, August 13–15. You can register to these conversation series at www.sydneyindesign.com.au/program.
