Singapore gears up for Saturday in Design

After the massive success of the inaugural Saturday in Design last year, the highly anticipated design event returns to Singapore once more on Saturday October 6 – this time, bigger, better and with more design in tow

19 Sep 2012

The one-day design event is set to take place within central Singapore as 35 of the city’s most significant design showrooms open their doors to the architecture and design community and design lovers.

Visitors will have access to special product launches, introductions to new brands and inspiring installations born from collaborations between local creatives and showrooms under The Project initiative.

A series of VIP Events and Workshops will take place in the days leading up to the event on Saturday, while International Guests such as Shashi Caan, President of the International Federation of Interior Architects/Designers (IFI), will be making their way into Singapore to join in the festivities.

After the enthusiastic response from just under 3000 visitors to last year’s Saturday in Design, the event expects an estimated 4000 visitors this year. With the support of industry partners including the DesignSingapore Council, the red dot design museum, the Singapore Institute of Architects, and the International Federation of Interior Architects/Designers, this year’s event promises to be one to look forward to. “The event is already recognised in Asia. We’re only in our second edition, but already we have overseas companies using Saturday in Design as a platform to launch in this region,” says Raj Nandan, Publisher and CEO of Indesign Media Group. “The founding concept is to entertain somebody in your own house, with your own culture, on your own premise. It’s far more realistic, cost effective and enjoyable.”

To attend, simply register for free at saturdayindesign.com.sg. You will receive a day pass in your email, which you can print out and bring with you during the day of the event. In addition to the updates you’ll receive once you register, an event guidebook will also be available for downloading on the website prior to the event. Alternatively, you can pick one up from any of the participating showrooms on the day. Complimentary shuttle buses plying four fixed routes provide a convenient way to get around. Alternatively, you can choose to move around on your own and see where theday brings you!
