Singapore Design Week Returns With More Events and Extended Run

Over 60 new and enhanced events, activities and trade shows, plus two feature exhibitions—we hope we’re getting you as excited as we are about this year’s second edition of Singapore Design Week. Organised by the DesignSingapore Council, the SDW will take place at the National Design Centre and several other locations across the island. A special exhibition called Fifty Years of Singapore Design will also be held to showcase how design has evolved and contributed to Singapore’s economy and to making our island-state a design hub. More than 200 design artefacts, some loaned from personal collections, will be on display. 

“One of the objectives of the Singapore Design Week is to raise public awareness and appreciation of design through our line-up of events and activities. We are also introducing some new elements this year to enhance visitors’ experience and level of engagement,” said Mr. Robert M Tomlin, Chairman, DesignSingapore Council. 

Another feature exhibition is called New British Inventors: Inside the Heatherwick Studio, to be presented by the British Council in collaboration with the GREAT British Week and the DesignSingapore Council, which will explore the creative talent of British designer Thomas Heatherwick. Other activities to look forward to include SingaPlural, organised by the Singapore Furniture Industries Council, which will highlight the entire furniture design process; the Singapore Design Business Summit, organised by the Design Business Chamber Singapore, which will provide more in-depth discussions about emerging trends of integrating design, business, and technology; and two major trade fairs—the International Furniture Fair Singapore, and MAISON&OBJECT ASIA from Paris.

Working with an old structure but wish to make it look more contemporary? The photos above clearly demonstrate how this can be done. Contemporary Scandinavian is a popular style nowadays, what with its clean, streamlined look and preference for natural materials like wood and stone. 

The 925-square-foot space above in central Stockholm, Sweden actually makes use of traditional turn-of-the-century details like tall ceilings and classic window frames, but has several contemporary additions—an open-plan living room with an integrated kitchen, minimalist white storage units—but still feel warm, homey, and welcoming.

Here’s a gadget you don’t see every day: A 16-million-colour light bulb that you can adjust through an app on your smartphone. This new product from Smfx is Bluetooth-enabled, energy-efficient, and has over 16 million colours you can choose from. You can use bright blue-white for working or studying, warm yellow for relaxing, and many other colours for different occasions and moods. It’s easy to install, too, as it fits any standard bulb socket. You can also set a timer for the bulb to turn off or on, comes with a lifespan of 25,000 hours, and uses only 10% of the energy normally used by standard light bulbs.
