Wallpaper*, IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE DesignSingapore Council, PRESENTS THE HANDMADE RETREAT
Wallpaper*, the global authority on design, unveils The Handmade Retreat, a gorgeously rendered sanctuary of calm, wellbeing, mindfulness and barefoot luxury.
With Singapore-based talent tasked to contribute products designed to aid mental, spiritual and bodily wellbeing, this showcase of creativity and collaboration promises to be a celebration of lifestyle improvement, a design spa for self-renewal.
An exhibition highlight will be a piece created by Wallpaper* Handmade’s Next Generation Singapore Designer, Edmund Zhang, an industrial design graduate of the National University of Singapore. Zhang’s ‘Squeezy’ lamp, a simple desktop LED application that illuminates with a squeeze and gradually dims to a pleasing, therapeutic glow, won him the prestigious Wallpaper* accolade in a competition that attracted talent from all over the city-state and beyond.
Together with a collection of Wallpaper* Handmade Classics – greatest hits from Wallpaper’s exhibition of specially commissioned one-off wonders debuted annually in Milan – and work by established Singapore-based creatives, Studio Juju, Stolen, Theseus Chan, Olivia Lee, Gabriel Tan Studio and WOHA, Zhang’s ‘Squeezy’ lamp will be shown for the first time at the Wallpaper* Handmade Retreat during Singapore Design Week, March 2018.
*Exhibition closed on Mondays.
