Led by the creators of the world-famous Desa Potato Head creative village, Potato Head, and co-curated with award-winning firm Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA), the National Design Centre (NDC) will be transformed into N*thing Is Possible, a regenerative design showcase that celebrates re-use, re-cycle, re-craft and re-live by highlighting the hospitality company’s journey to accomplish a zero-waste lifestyle.
The storytelling multimedia exhibit that spans across design, art, architecture, music, food and fashion will be brought to life with the help of international and Singapore collaborators including renowned Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, American artist Futura, Catalan industrial designer Andreu Carulla, British furniture designer Max Lamb, London-based design studio Toogood, French director and photographer Thibaut Grevet, Indonesian architect Andra Matin, Jakarta design studio BYO Living, and Bali-based environmental engineers Eco Mantra alongside Singapore partners and supporters including popular F&B concept Tanuki Raw, NUS Department of Architecture, independent research lab Atelier Hoko, circular workshop partner, The Idea Co, and the National Environmental Agency (NEA).
In many inspiring and innovative ways, the showcase will tell the story of how, with the help of internationally acclaimed talent, Ronald Akili’s Potato Head Beach Club became a creative, sustainable place shape-shifting waste into beautiful objects and art. The exhibit will also reveal the detailed blueprint for Potato Head’s journey to this point, with the intention that it informs and inspires others to apply it in their own businesses.
The three-month show begins with activations, talks, panels, and activities involving many of the collaborators and designers.
