DIG­I­TAL BE­INGS

Harper's Bazaar (Singapore) - - THE CULTURE -

What w would the an­cient Greek god­dess of wis­dom be like to­day, in our dig­i­tally-driven world? Highly con­nected, in­cred­i­bly tech­savvy and gilded, ob­vi­ously. This is ex­actly what S Sin­ga­porean de­signer, Olivia Lee drew in­spi­ra­tionins from for “Where Athena Lives: The Athena Col­lec­tion,” a se­ries of sleek, pas­tel-per­fect fur­ni­ture. What Lee has done is reimag­ine ana­logue ob­jects for mod­ern-day habits—think a van­ity set with a mir­ror en­cir­cled by a ring light to il­lu­mi­nate miens for pre­cise beau­ti­fi­ca­tion,b self­ies and video cre­ation; ad­di­tion­ala Scep­tres from a swiv­el­ling smart­phonesma holder to a trin­ket pedestal; and a car­pet­car with tac­tile bor­der de­tails to de­mar­cate the “safe zone” for gamers plugged into vir­tual re­al­ity.rea There are also candy-coloured foam pan­elspa that serve as acous­tic buffer­ing when hunghu on walls or seat­ing pads when taken down,d and the sleek­est tray per­fect for lap­top workw and break­fast in bed. So cov­etable, it’s non won­der they were a hit at Mi­lan’s re­cent fur­ni­turef ex­trav­a­ganza, Salone del Mo­bile 2017.
