SingaPlural is celebrating its 5th anniversary with a new fresh theme, ‘Senses – The Art and Science of Eexperiences’
These experiences – sight, sound, scent, texture and taste – will come together in an amalgamation of colour and creativity to tease and tantalise visitors with new perspectives of how design can be employed and enhance our daily experiences.
Leveraging on Singapore’s newly crowned status as a UNESCO Creative City of Design, SingaPlural has also widened its outreach to add more content and participants into its fold. This year will see a record 71 installations by designers, manufacturers, builders and design schools.
Mr Mark Yong, Chairman of SingaPlural, said: “The number of design installations has risen significantly from previous years! It is an encouraging development for us and certainly a motivation for this year’s festival, especially with at least a 30% increase in content.”
To be held from now to March 13 at 99 Beach Road – the heart of Singapore’s arts and cultural heritage district – SingaPlural 2016, which is organised by the Singapore Furniture Industries Council (SFIC), is the annual anchor event for the Singapore Design Week (SDW).
