The lineup:

Project X – Dot your I’s and Cross your T’s

Lamitak has partnered with four local design talents and groups, who will be showcasing the process of transition and transformation of laminates beyond its perceived form. The process of creation starts early before the festival dates of SingaPlural 2015 and is closely documented.
Venue: 99 Beach Road

Design Installations – Connect the Dots

Undertaken by designers, makers, manufacturers, builders and design schools alike, a curated route through design installations demonstrates different perspectives and voices, expanding the possibilities and mind-sets towards “Process”.

Venue: 99 Beach Road

Talks + Symposiums – The Little Red Dot

Targeted at a design-centric audience, talks and symposiums discuss subjects of relevance to the design community and connect with the audience on different levels. A key focus of this pillar is the Singapore Design Business Summit 2015. Themed “Celebrating Our Design Journey”, it invites pioneer designers to share their experiences.

Venue: 99 Beach Road

Tours – Follow the Dots

Curated through the process journey of design, the tour participants will be led through designers’ studios where designers could share their work approaches and ideas, to manufacturers’ production facilities where prototyping and production take place, and finally to design retailers where creations are sold with a story. This experience accords participants a holistic view of the design industry.

Venue: 99 Beach Road
