Taking place from 16-25 September 2022, the festival line-up of design and creative heavyweights promises to cement Singapore Design Week as the region’s premier design festival. The 10-day festival will bring together over 50 events and 200 designers, and present an immersive suite of design experiences through three defining pillars:
Design Futures explores Singapore as a futuristic city of design where the world’s brightest minds and thought leaders congregate to provide a glimpse into how design is the bedrock of building a better future for all. Titled ‘Agency for the Future: Design and the Quest for a Better World’, this inaugural symposium will be developed under the curatorial direction of internationally renowned design curator and author Paola Antonelli.
Design Marketplace strengthens Singapore’s position as a strategic global-Asia hub in the design circuit. The highly awaited FIND – Design Fair Asia not only brings established global brands, thought leaders and designers together but also the first-ever EMERGE @ FIND showcase, which will present new projects by more than 50 Southeast Asian designers.
Design Impact celebrates the ingenuity of real-life solutions that address today’s most critical issues. Members of the public will have the opportunity to experience first-hand some of Singapore’s most outstanding designs through the President*s Design Award Tours and witness how research and experimentation brings the positive impact of good design to life at the Good Design Research pop-up. The National Design Centre will be transformed into N*thing is Possible, a regenerative design showcase led by the creators of the world-famous Desa Potato Head creative village, Potato Head.
When: 16 - 25 Sep 2022,
