From September 22 to 24, Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Center will be home to the FIND – Design Fair Asia fair (an acronym for Furniture, Interiors and Design), a major new Asian event for the furniture industry. Organized by Fiera Milano, in a joint venture with dmg events, attracting more than 250 companies and 10,000 visitors.
As the flagship event of the brand-new Singapore Design Week, the fair is made for architects, designers, retailers, experts, and design enthusiasts, as well as the press and industry influencers, with traditional pavilions for new furniture and design and a digital platform that connects exhibitors, visitors, and buyers.
Tony Chambers, former editor of Wallpaper*, and Yoko Choy, China editor for Wallpaper* are in charge of the event content, offering six main themes: sustainable development, post-pandemic hospitality, biophilic design, the future of well-being, metaverse design, creativity, trade and communication. FIND turns Singapore into a growing design hub that can attract emerging and famous designers as well as major tastemakers and opinion leaders in the industry.
Its many events include The Italian Design Future Capsule by Stefano Boeri Interiors, a showcase to celebrate creativity, craftsmanship, and design thinking in Italy. The architects Stefano Boeri and Giorgio Donà, co-founders of the multidisciplinary firm Stefano Boeri Interiors and their team designed a space to exhibit new products and creations from emerging companies and talents.
Among the 30 Italian brands here are Agglotech, Aina Kari, Ernestomeda, Italian Texstyle, Nahoor Limelight, Ovo, Tabu, and Terzani. The space’s layout is designed with sets that divide the product categories on display and let each brand tell its story on vertical walls and on horizontal surfaces. Talks and discussions are also planned and led by major Italian architects and designers.
DesignSingapore Council presents more than 50 emerging Asian designers who are showing their work, curated by Suzy Annetta (founding editor-in-chief of Design Anthology magazine) at the EMERGE @ FIND pavilion, with this edition focused on six countries from Southeast Asia: Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.
