SingaPlural 2016 has recently ended with a bang, as circa 28,000 visitors came to experience some of Singapore’s most innovative design concepts put up by over 100 designers and more than 20 local and global brands.
Key event of the Singapore Design Week, SingaPlural showcases all aspects of design in various sectors by bringing together young local designers and globally renowned companies in a dynamic creative background.
“The fifth anniversary of SingaPlural has brought a new level of design innovation to the industry. We are happy to be able to work with some of the top local and international brands who showcased their innovations here. Brands such as 3M, Bolon, Hafary and LG HI-Macs were among the many which joined us this year” commented Mr Mark Yong, Chairman, SingaPlural 2016
Going forward, the organising team is already making new plans and welcoming new partnerships as it sets to stage a bigger, better SingaPlural come March 2017.
On his future aspirations for the festival, Mr Mark Yong said: “We have achieved many firsts for SingaPlural 2016 – a timely achievement as the Singapore design industry is on a cusp of profound growth, with the nation being dubbed a UNESCO Creative City of Design just months ago and the DesignSingapore Council recently announcing its Design 2025 masterplan.
“We hope that SingaPlural will continue to work with leading global and local brands and harness the growing local design talents to fuel business growth and further cement Singapore’s stature as a regional design hub.”
SingaPlural showcases 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.
