1. Experience Three New Smart Products by Schiavello
Schiavello will be launching three new smart products, Karo, Vertical Garden and Focus, in its showroom.
The Karo ottoman, designed by Ivan Woods, is soft, relaxed and tailored. It features a subtly tapered profile and a sculptural quality that will lend a touch of elegance to living and working spaces.
Joost Bakker’s Vertical Garden is a grid system of shelves that contain numerous potted plants in a space efficient manner. It is ideal for segmenting spaces or creating decorative walls that transform interiors with the beauty of nature.
Focus is a workstation made up of soft barriers and booths, providing users with a quiet place to concentrate, especially within high-traffic, activity-based workspaces.
2. Discover New Perspectives in ipli Architects’ DEMATERIAL for EDL
EDL and ipli Architects will present DEMATERIAL, a contextual installation designed to alter perceptions. Visitors are invited to step within the installation and be surrounded by ‘pixelation’ blocks and numerous laminate plates that seemingly float around and above. Believing that laminates have the ability to mimic actual materials with their only revelation being the thinness of their profiles, ipli Architects is inviting passersby to examine the installation closely to discover the ‘deception’ of laminates and experience the ‘lightness’ of the material.
FORMation by Studiogoto for Kreon
3. Immerse in Studiogoto’s FORMation for Kreon
FORMation, conceived by Studiogoto is set to convey light as a three-dimensional element. Three core components, Kreon‘s Cloud light fixtures, a black box and a series of blue and black coloured threads, will be introduced. The Cloud lighting fittings will be strategically suspended at varying heights and distances, conveying the changing effects of daylight as clouds are moved by winds. “Just like wind movement, when the visitor moves, the varying density creates light effects in different illumination levels accordingly,” says Studiogoto.
4. Catch the Screening of B&B Italia’s 50th Anniversary Film
In celebration of B&B Italia’s 50th anniversary, SPACE will screen the documentary, ‘B&B Italia. Poetry in the shape. When design meets industry,’ a film that is guaranteed to dive deep into the backstory of one of Italy’s most important brands. The screening will be complemented by commemorative books, concept videos and a heritage wall. Visitors will also stand a chance to win a B&B Italia Beverly armchair (Worth S$8,270) by Antonio Citterio.
5. Feast your Eyes in Spectrum by Lucas for Sunbrella
A three-dimensional expression of colour trends, Spectrum is Lucas‘s installation for Sunbrella. It will feature a cascade of suspended cubes upholstered in Sunbrella fabrics in varying shades, inviting visitors to venture within and reconsider the look, feel and performance of fabrics.

The internet never sleeps! Here's the stuff you might have missed
From office buildings, hospitals, parks and retreats, wellness is becoming multi-dimensional. Once the outlier of architectural vernaculars, we now look to wellness as a core design narrative, informing the way we build, design and interact with all kinds of spaces and places.
