Singaplural returns to its fourth edition from March 10 to March 15, 2015, at the iconic location of 99 Beach Road, within the arts and cultural heritage district, to showcase the best design elements from the multi-faceted creative spectrum – advertising, architecture, urban planning, landscape architecture, as well as interior, furniture, graphic and fashion design.
Featuring a total of 60 installations by designers, makers, manufacturers, builders and design schools alike, a curated route through the design installations demonstrates different perspectives and voices, expanding the possibilities and mind-sets towards the theme, “Process”.
This year singaPlural has the theme of “Process”, will highlight the commitment and work put into each creation by bringing light to the journey of design undertaken by the various designers, makers and retailers, through the various installations, exhibitions, forums and activities. Singaplural aims to create a more approachable and retable edition for the masses- allowing them to immerse themselves in design’s most basic form and follow the train of thoughts in design.
“With this year being the meaningful SG50, there’s no better time to fly the design flag high and share the evolution of our very creative design scene through the various projects from SingaPlural 2015. Beyond just encouraging the designers, with our festival construct pillars, we also look towards how design can be applied across different business industries,” says Mark Yong, Vice President of Singapore Furniture Industries Council and Chairman of SingaPlural.
Some of the architects and designers have already showcased their themes and designs which are impressing. For the first time, SingaPlural has engaged a local team of curators- PLUS collaborative and GOVT to bring cohesiveness to SingaPlural through a well defined festival construct. SingaPlural 2015 will be shaped around a set of six festival pillars that streamlined the design installations targeted at engaging the design and non-design affiliated audience in a confidence about the said theme
