5 Things You Should Know This Week: 6 August 2018

These are some of the news you should know this week:

1. IKEA unveils the SAMMANHANG collection

Collectors, listen up! IKEA’s latest collection for the collectors, SAMMANHANG, is here to help you make a unique statement with your favourite things. Because collecting brings you immense joy, the latest collection recognises that "all that stuff" is more than just objects, but reminds you of fond memories, good times and pieces of yourselves that we want to show off.

The word, “sammanhang” actually means “context” in Swedish. So, what it’s really all about is placing your collection of items into context. Launching next month, SAMMANHANG is a collection of open and closed units for embracing and displaying your belongings. Ranging from the smallest of boxes, to pieces of furniture, the collection is created in collaboration with seven designers. In a variety of materials, the collection shows a side of IKEA storage that you perhaps aren’t as used to seeing. Visit your nearest IKEA store to check out the pieces in the collection.

2. Visit the Robinsons Home Fair, ongoing until 19 August

3. LG Inverter's promise in helping battle rising electricity costs

How can you battle the 6.9% increase in your electricity bill? Use cost-saving appliances at home!

LG appliances use energy-savvy parts that can help cushion the effects of the increased utilities costs, especially in the long run. Inverter-type motors and compressors are standard in many LG home appliances and give the company’s products their cutting edge and premium quality.

The secret advantage of LG Inverter motors and compressors over conventional models is precise speed control. Whether it’s a washing machine, refrigerator, or microwave oven, LG Inverter regulates the speed and revolution of motors and compressors depending on the situation, automatically adjusting the speed to maximise output and optimise results with less energy and less noise.

4. Sony introduces MASTER Series of 4K HDR TVs with the A9F OLED and Z9F LCD

Sony announced two new television series, both offering unprecedented picture quality by virtue of employing multiple proprietary technologies and solutions with the next generation Picture Processor X1TM Ultimate at the fore. The new A9F and Z9F series arrive as the MASTER Series—a name Sony reserves exclusively for its highest picture quality TV models. Sony’s goal is to create a television capable of displaying images that faithfully convey the creators’ full intent and as such the MASTER Series provides picture quality approaching that of a professional-grade monitor in a motion picture production studio. Having developed and followed a very strict set of product evaluation criteria by its most experienced picture quality engineers, Sony is confident the flagship MASTER Series delivers the highest quality picture possible in a home setting.

Both the A9F and Z9F MASTER Series models come equipped with a newly developed, next-generation Picture Processor X1TM Ultimate. This processor plays a vital role in delivering the faithful picture in the MASTER Series. For this series, in conjunction with Netflix, Sony is now introducing "Netflix Calibrated Mode." This unique feature was specially developed to mirror the same picture quality as a studio evaluation master for television in order to preserve the artists’ creative vision and intent.

5. Homegrown design agency Charlton Design celebrates 30 years in Singapore

Established some 30 years ago in 1988, homegrown design agency Charlton Design is today helmed by Gary Ong, the son of its original founder Ong Ka Bio. Charlton Design prides itself on being one of the few interior design agencies in Singapore that still operates a workshop in Singapore for all its carpentry works to ensure a consistently high standard for all its projects, amidst a common sentiment to save on carpentry costs by outsourcing such jobs overseas. Over the past 30 years, Charlton Design has amassed an impressive portfolio of design works, comprising residential, commercial, and retail projects of well-known brands and local homeowners alike.

"In interior design and renovation, apart from knowledge of spatial proportions, colour schemes, and colour combinations, you need passion, patience, and a ready smile to handle different types of clients and their design demands. At Charlton Design, we surely have an abundance of passion, topped off with 30 years of experience, to always delivery the highest standards of service and products to our clients. Our experienced and dedicated team of designers take pride in what they do and keep abreast with new design trends," said Gary Ong, Director of Charlton Design.
