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

1. Pamper Mom with these LG products

Still looking for a present for the most special woman in your life? Show Mom how much you truly appreciate her with any of these 8 smart, time-saving solutions: LG HOM-BOT Turbo+, LG TWINWash, LG C8 OLED TV, LG Styler, LG Side-by-Side Refrigerator with InstaView Door-in-Door, LG gram 15, LG V30+, and LG SIGNATURE Air Purifier.

LG TWINWash

Let the Wi-Fi-enabled free up mom’s time with its fuss-free automated cleaning abilities. A washing machine that separately washes coloured and whites but in the same cycle would save plenty of hours over the week, so get her the LG TWINWash. With LG C8 OLED TV’s ThinQ® artificial intelligence (AI) technology, mom can control the TV easily with voice commands into the remote control such as switching the channel, or turning the volume up and down. The LG Styler refreshes and removes odours from fabrics in just 20mins on the shortest cycle of the Refresh Mode, and utilises LG's TrueStream technology to help reduce allergens and wrinkles in clothing. All these and more make mom's life easier at home.

2. Thoughtful Mother's Day gifts from Philips

This special day for mom, let her know just how much she means to you. Philips has gift ideas that range across the kitchen, home, beauty and personal grooming products that are sure to bring a huge smile to her face.

Rice is a staple dish for almost every meal in Singapore, and mom will be glad to know that the Philips Avance Collection Rice Cooker HD3175/62’s patented “iSpiral IH” technology and 7-layer “blaze-pot” design allows for better heat conduction throughout the pot, ensuring every grain of rice is cooked to perfection. Keep the whole family healthy with the Philips Avance Collection Juicer. The FiberBoost technology allows mom to change the texture of juice she prefers—from a refreshing clear juice to a creamy juice with up to 50% more fiber simply with a switch of a button. Fried food no longer has to be a guilty indulgence with the Philips Avance Collection Airfryer XXL HD9654/91! The new XXL family size Airfryer fries with little or no added oil and its Twin TurboStar technology removes fat from foods to produce crispy results with 90% less fat, making this the healthiest way for mum to fry for the whole family. An essential tool for our domestic goddess, the Philips SpeedPro Max Stick Vacuum Cleaner FC6823/61 offers the fastest cordless cleaning experience with its 360 degree suction nozzle which captures dust and dirt from all sides with every stroke.

5. See the Pavilion of Singapore at Biennale Architettura 2018

Commissioned by the DesignSingapore Council (Dsg) of the Ministry of Communications and Information, and the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA), and curated by the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) in collaboration with the National University of Singapore’s Department of Architecture (NUS), the Singapore Pavilion asks if there is indeed "No More Free Space?" in the island state, in response to the overarching theme "Freespace" conceptualised by curators Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara.

Set against the backdrop of Singapore’s compact urban environment, the exhibition features 12 Singapore-based projects that showcase the resourcefulness of the architects, their inspirations and the realisation of ideas, while borrowing natural resources such as light, air, greenery and water. Each of the 12 projects featured shows imagination, openness, discovery, and resolution to turn constraints into possibilities. The projects also tap into social capital in order to bring joy and connect people to the larger community.

The Pavilion’s centrepiece features an immersive installation, an ethereal cloud made of skilfully handcrafted acrylic knots gently suspended in the vast spaces of the Sale d’Armi—a venue provided by the National Arts Council. Complete with a multi-sensory projection of lights, sounds and images of Singapore, the pavilion invites visitors to immerse themselves in the spaces within the cloud and enjoy the multi-sensorial installation—in itself an example of a resourceful, unexpected free space. The presentation will be restaged in Singapore in 2019 to engage the public about turning Singapore’s physical constraints into possibilities with imagination and creativity.
