The buzz leading up to the event started early with a slew of fringe events taking place all week, including Okamura’s 67th anniversary party at red dot design museum, Stylecraft’s Bowling for Cancer, the Moooi 2012 collection launch at Space Asia Hub, Oktoberfest by XTRA, and a howwecreate.com / PALAMONT talk for designers over at Chan Hampe Galleries.

On Saturday, the sunny weather had the crowds all primed and ready to go. The atmosphere was electric with visitors starting early at the different showrooms, all with their traffic stopping watermelon orange tags and Saturday in Design handbooks to guide them through the four design precincts.
