Featuring striking tapered legs which offer a slender and overall delicate profile to the chair, DC-01 combines solid timber with a cane seat option, or upholstery. And yet, One of the stand-out forms of the DLC-01 chair is its sweeping u-shaped rail. A big motivation behind the design was to create a simple and elegant chair that reduces waste and environmental impact. This is achieved by donating a percentage of the profits to Rainforest Rescue in order to offset the timber use, thus creating a carbon-neutral product.


Launch Pad is part of the INDE.Awards


Held on June 22nd in Singapore, the INDE.Awards Gala is dedicated to celebrating outstanding architecture and design across the Asia-Pacific region. This year, with over 400 entries, the calibre of projects, people, products and ideas push the industry to new frontiers, actively creating a better world through a narrative of excellence. Launch Pad provides an important leveraging point in this context insofar as it quite literally places tomorrow’s inspiring talent on the very same stage with today’s leading luminaries.  


The INDE.Awards program is curated specifically to commemorate projects on the region’s own terms and not by the terms of the worlds other design centres, addressing sectors of design with significant and increasing relevance to the globe’s most populous region.



Congratulations to Yeo Yiliang, winner of Launch Pad 2018 and Dan Layden, this year’s runner-up. Indesign Media wishes to congratulate all shortlisted Launch Pad nominees for their creativity, ingenuity and design bravery.

We also wish to thank Schiavello, Launch Pad’s Official Partner, for helping to nurture the future of our industry and placing Asia-Pacific design on the global stage.
