SGID16 – Boutique and Curated (Part III)

Singapore Indesign 2016 (SGID16) brought together a curation of meaningful design experiences and top-notch brands in its Curated Space at 72-13 Mohamed Sultan Road. Here’s what went down.

SGID16 – Boutique and Curated (Part III)

The beauty of Singapore Indesign has always been in its thoughtful curation of programmes that add meaning and value to the entire experience of a ‘design event’.

Singapore Indesign 2016 (SGID16) was no different, and one of the best examples could be found at the Curated Space. The exhibitors this year were Greenlam, Sunbrella, ThinkLab by Luxxbox, and Kokaine / Waam Studio / Polybuilding, with each pulling out the stops to showcase the unique qualities of their brand and product offering.

Installation by Greenlam and DP Design

Greenlam collaborated with DP Design to create a huge, latticing free-form pavilion. The structure was made out of more than 600 eco-friendly laminate pieces that came together to form furniture, walls and canopy. Aside from showing the beautiful qualities of Greenlam’s laminates, the temporary structure also explored the concept of borders in providing a place of sanctuary and refuge.

Spectrum by Sunbrella and Lucas

Sunbrella partnered with Melbourne-based design practice Lucas to present Spectrum, a towering installation made out of cascading cubes. The cubes were upholstered in Sunbrella fabrics that were strategically selected to underscore key colour trends and the company’s unique colour universe. Visitors could walk inside the eye-catching structure for a more intimate viewing of the piece.

ThinkLab by Luxxbox

More and more, we see domestic elements entering and transforming the office environment. At Singapore Indesign, the archetypal house structure displaying the very latest products from ThinkLab by Luxxbox appeared to reflect that trend. The company presented the company’s newest acoustic lighting, agile furniture and flexible thought boards that have been specifically designed to meet the work needs of today.
