9 kooky things we saw at Singapore’s favourite design playground
12 March 2016
The fifth edition of SingaPlural opened to great crowds on 7 March and will be here till 13 March. The interactive installations and design festivities have constantly met the mark over the years and for 2016, they certainly did not disappoint. Here’s a round-up of what we saw, loved and couldn’t stop talking about at SingaPlural 2016.
SCOPE is an architectural kaleidoscope that you can walk into and inhabit. While the exterior is a weave of timber laminates, the reflectivity of the interior is created using mirror laminates. Walk in and remember to take that instagrammable shot!
Scale Up Your Fear by StickyLine
Relax. These “roaches” are made from folding paper. The designers at Stickyline wanted this installation to be an amplification of your fears, so that the question is: How will you react when you are forced to confront your fears? Well, we gleefully picked one of these up and even stroked it. But the real thing? No, thank you.
The Curious Paradox of 50 House by Teo Huey Ling
A whimsical exploration using clay and wool, this installation encourages a tactile sensory aesthetic. There are 50 houses spread throughout the space, can you find all 50?
Step into an interactive installation featuring a large spectrum of Hafary products. Creative design studio WY-TO rethinks tiles as an integrated component of design and uses this experiential installation to reveal the wide range of tiles, textures and finishes in different settings.
Beneath the Surface by Miun
Comprising a series of instant photographs that demonstrates depth and magic in a Polaroid frame, this interactive artwork is one that is certainly amusing and delightful. Go on, press the button and watch the film light up!
Constructed out of recycled Mediacorp production set props, Doors is a maze of openings that lead to five curated spaces to tease our senses of sight, hearing, touch, smell and taste.
War With White Shirts by Bev C
Using a massive range of white shirts, designers from fashion store Bev C explore how interaction with fellow human beings affect each of us. While we get that relationships have an affect on us as a person, like how stains easily mark a white shirt, we are fascinated with the intricate embroidery seen on these white shirts.
The Endangered is an animal-themed range of musical jewellery boxes that uses colour, texture, sound and scent to trigger your memories.
Eat Your Vegetables by Zavier Wong
This installation challenges our association of familiar things with specific shapes and colour. Is that green-coloured vegetable-shaped object a vegetable or a gummy candy?
