We invite ingenious designers to contribute to our next Handmade show
Back in March, Designsingapore Council announced a joint partnership to host the Brainstorm Design conference in Singapore in 2018 and 2019. Supported by Singapore’s Economic Development Board, the new, annual event will comprise a two-day conference bringing together global thought leaders in design and business to share strategies for design innovation.
The launch also marked the Singapore debut of the Wallpaper* Handmade exhibition at the Gillman Barracks. Showcasing original pieces and unique design collaborations, commissioned by Wallpaper* and created by internationally renowned talents, it was a landmark event for the city-state’s design scene, and it led to a second show, Wallpaper* Handmade On Tour 2017 in Singapore, held in partnership with Designsingapore Council, which runs until 31 October. Handmade Singapore has also entered a third stage; Wallpaper* Handmade has invited Singapore designers to contribute to its 2018 exhibition. The theme is Wellness and Wonder, and we are looking for designers to create pieces that take you on the journey towards a better you: objects that exercise the cerebellum and replenish the body, jet-wash the life force and restore the innate harmony of the individual. All qualified Singapore citizens and permanent residents – design, architecture and fashion creatives who have graduated in the last five years – are invited to submit a proposal.
‘This is an exceptional opportunity for Singapore talents to demonstrate their creativity and innovation, says Agnes Kwek, Designsingapore Council’s executive director. ‘The exposure will be far-reaching for Singapore designers, as well as for the Singapore brand.’
