Lifestyle: Singapore Design Week


Here’s something for the hipster couples out there — Singapore Design Week (SDW) will be making its debut at the newly established National Design Centre (along Middle Road, just opposite the National Library) from 10-16 March 2014! During this week, expect to find more than 50 design activities (including exhibitions, talks, tours etc) that will introduce the best of international and local design.

Of particular interest is the SDW’s anchor programme — SingaPlural. With a clever wordplay on ‘Singapore’ and ‘plural’, this programme, as its name suggests, sets out to showcase the diversity of local design across various disciplines including furniture, graphic, fashion and so on. This year’s showcase is notably curated by renowned Japanese designer, Nakamuta Yoichi. For the duration of the week, keep your eyes open to the visual treat around you, as pieces will not only be located in venues such as the Singapore Expo and National Design Centre; they will also be located along downtown streets around you!

If you’re looking for something interesting to do together with your loved one during this week, why not check out one of the many free programmes that are open to public?
