Galerie 5 by Sol Luminaire has just opened at 50 Craig Road. Set across three levels of a shophouse unit, the gallery is an inspirational and ethereal space filled with lamps that are art pieces in themselves, and these are displayed alongside artisanal home accessories and furnishings. Brands currently carried here include Makhno Studio (lamps), llll (lamps), Frederic Saulou (furnishing and accessories), Sticky Glass (glassware), and The Soucy Shop (ceramics).
Follow the softly curved walls from one whitewashed room into the next, and if you need more time to admire the displays, their large and comfy sofas are perfect for lounging.
AMH (ArtMeetsHart) is an art design company that takes the idea of living with art to a new level. Offering an alternative way for homeowners to showcase and enjoy art in their spaces other than on canvas, the company works with craftsmen and artists to incorporate them onto furnishings and feature walls instead.
If you’re looking for something award-winning, look no further than the ICE of Genesis collection from COMPAC, which has just garnered this year’s Red Dot Design Award’s top title of “Best of the Best”.
It’s designed by renowned artist Arik Levy, and made with one of COMPAC’s strongest and most durable material, COMPAC quartz. The collection is inspired by the frozen lakes of the Arctic, and is meant to offer the sensation akin to walking on ice sheets. Sustainable processes are used to create this collection.
ICE of Genesis can be used as kitchen countertops, flooring, wall cladding and even furniture. They are works of art whichever way you choose to use them.
Samsung’s The Frame TV combines technology with art to make a huge variety of artworks more attainable to more people. In their most recent collaboration with National Gallery Singapore, 10 prominent artworks by Singaporean and Southeast Asian artists from the gallery’s collection are now added to the Samsung Art Store. The artworks include Market Place by Chen Chong Swee, Boschbrand (Forest Fire) by Raden Saleh, Jetty at Sinde by U Ba Nyan, Singapore Waterfront by Georgette Chen, and Barber by Ong Kim Seng, among others.
The 10 art pieces join over 1,600 other masterpieces from museums and galleries around the world that Samsung has partnered with, such as the Louvre Museum in France, the Albertina Museum in Vienna, and the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.
Vibrant fabrics and wallcoverings are easy and effective ways to bring colour and flair into your space. Designers Guild Spring Summer 2022 collection offers an explosion of floral blooms and decorative motifs that are romantic and contemporary. The collection consists of designs by Tricia Guild, Christian Lacroix Maison, John Derian and William Yeoward.
You don’t have to go full on with these dramatic designs either. A few cushions or a feature wall will go a long way in making a statement.
