When designers and exhibitors combine, you can take in something innovative and fresh. This year’s theme for Saturday Indesign collaborative installations is ‘Community’. Here’s a preview.

Don’t Miss The Saturday Indesign Collaborative Installations!

Three installations at Journey East

In addition to hosting one of our Design Conversation panels, Journey East will also present three installations spread around the showroom by some of Singapore’s best emerging young studios: Wynk Collaborative, Feral and UPSTAIRS_. See them at Journey East, #03-02, Tan Boon Liat Building.

Journey East x UPSTAIRS_ = ‘The Bulb Is The Lamp And The Lamp Is Everything’

UPSTAIRS_ drew inspiration from the genesis of the Tala bulb: elevating the humble light bulb to a design object. The team’s interactive light sculpture can be controlled by the viewer by means of an electronic dimming switch, showcasing Tala’s spectacular dimming spectrum.

As a nod to Tala’s ethos of sustainability, the structure and components are designed as a modular kit-of-parts. As such, the installation can be dismantled for re-use in the hope of creating zero waste.

Journey East x Wynk Collaborative = ‘Lichen’

Wynk Collaborative is presenting pieces from Journey East’s vintage furniture collection in a fresh new way, using folded metal plates to add function and expression. The ‘Lichen’ installation presents a series of prototype objects designed to be attachments to vintage furniture pieces. They’re both functional and ornamental, making the old new again.

Made from bent metal and rendered in blocks of colour, juxtaposing with the mellow wood grains of the vintage pieces, the attachments for a relationship with the vintage pieces that is jarring yet harmonious at the same time.

The various attachments imbue a variety of functions to their vintage substrate according to their shapes and may be used individually or in combination, breathing new life into the charm of yesteryear.

Journey East x Feral = ‘Fast Slow Disco’

Inspired by the playful shape of the Qeeboo Rabbit chair, Feral creates a safe space for the seven artists/creatives who are participating in Journey East’s project to reimagine the chair. Where is the safe space? Under a giant carrot-shaped disco ball!

The message conveyed by the installation is one of inclusivity and a celebration of diversity through the language of design.

Stay tuned for the announcement of the seven participating artists! Ask the Journey East team for details about a silent auction of the Qeeboo Rabbit chairs. Proceeds will go to the Children’s Cancer Fund Singapore.


kreon studiogoto saturday indesign installations

Kreon x studiogoto

Kreon teams up with studiogoto to redefine the roles of vertical and horizontal architectural elements. Ceilings and walls interchange to craft space through a seamless flow of planes. Kreon’s minimalist architectural lighting products will find their natural place in this modular system. Pushing the boundaries of spatial flexibility!

See it at the Curated Space, 72-13 Theatreworks.


saturday indesign installations greenlam index design

Greenlam x Index Design

Greenlam partners with Index Design. Reminiscing the old times when listening to song birds was a common activity in HDB estates, this installation serves as a conversation starter and gathering point. It relives the vibrancy of this dwindling practice through punchy coloured laminates that change gradually as you walk round, as though bringing you back through the passage of time.

See it at the Curated Space, 72-13 Theatreworks.


saturday indesign installations the cinnamon room fraction

The Cinnamon Room x Fraction

The Cinnamon Room partners with design studio Fraction for a vertical installation made with all manner of soft furnishings. Think a plush oasis with vibrant colours and exquisite textures from carpets, cushions and more.

See it at the Curated Space, 72-13 Theatreworks.
