Singapore Indesign is just round the corner and anticipation is high. As we gear up for industry event of the year, we’ve put together 10 great reasons why it’s an event you shouldn’t miss.
October 6th, 2016
#1 Be among the first to see brand new products
Many exhibitors are taking this opportunity to launch new and innovative products, including JANUS et Cie, OM Furniture, Scandinavian Business Seating, Schiavello and Sunlight Luminaire/Louis Poulsen. Kokaine will also be unveiling its newest brand offering.
In addition, visitors to Singapore Indesign will be the first in Asia to witness the unveiling of Kvadrat’s new curtain collection by Doshi Levien. They will also get to enjoy an exclusive preview of Scandinavian Business Seating’s upcoming showcase at Orgatec 2016.
#2 Learn something new at Design Conversations
At Design Conversations, thought-leaders and industry-shakers will take the stage to discuss the latest ideas, directions, trends and opportunities in design. From the fleeting definition of Southeast Asian design to the evolution of lighting in architecture to the importance of future-proofing an ageing city, these talks are one of the most anticipated facets of Singapore Indesign. Seats are limited, of course, but you can register here.
#3 Rub shoulders with international guests
It’s an industry pow-wow with a guestlist that includes some of the industry’s hottest talents. We’re excited to welcome Nipa Doshi of London-based design duo Doshi Levien. Nipa will be presenting the studio’s collaboration with Kvadrat.
OM Furniture will also be hosting international designers Sean Dix, Mario Mazzer and Kelvin Ng, all of whom will be speaking on various design topics throughout the day.
#4 Check out Instagram-worthy Installations
Exhibitors will be going all out to create Instagram-friendly moments that become the talk of the town. Here’s a sneak peek at some of the highlights:
EDL and ipli Architects will take over the façade of the Space Furniture showroom to present DEMATERIAL. The outside of the building will be visually distorted, giving it a pixellated effect that invites you to take a closer look and have a feel.
Kreon will be collaborating with Studiogoto on an abstract installation centred around a series of suspended Cloud lights, thus the name cloud FORMation. The architectural form of the cloud light fittings will sway gently in motion, creating interesting changes in light and shade.
#5 Make new connections and connect with old friends
There will be plenty of networking opportunities at Singapore Indesign, so bring your business cards.
#6 Enjoy great hospitality from the biggest brands

The internet never sleeps! Here's the stuff you might have missed
Very often good ideas are generated by closed encounters and long lasting collaborations. The goal for Diller Scofidio + Renfro’s Linking Minds installation is to create an exhibition that lends itself to the creative process between two or more persons.
