HOSPITALITY Time 3:15pm – 4:00pm Tourist Or Global Citizen? Designing Hospitality In The Climate-Change Era Hotels are adapting to sustainable practices in operational terms (to larger and lesser extents), but what can designers and architects do to create the conditions for conscious, low-impact hospitality experiences through the buildings and spaces we holiday in? Should we be designing for global citizens, not tourists? How?

Time 5:00pm – 5:45pm Designers Are Lazy When It Comes To Sustainability There’s no shortage of information about how the output of designers and architects could be more sustainable. So why don’t more of us achieve it? Are designers lazy, or are there other factors at play? The legendary debate team from 2017 returns to Saturday Indesign to battle it out. Hold on to your seats, because it’s going to be a wild ride!

Collaborate Kreon x studiogoto Kreon teams up with studiogoto to redefine the roles of vertical and horizontal architectural elements. Ceilings and walls interchange to craft space through a seamless flow of planes. Kreon’s minimalist architectural lighting products will find their natural place in this modular system. Pushing the boundaries of spatial flexibility – don’t miss it!

Don’t miss the Saturday Indesign collaborative installations! Designers and exhibitors combine, letting you take in something innovative and fresh. Theme: Community.

The Cinnamon Room x Fraction The Cinnamon Room will partner with design studio Fraction for a vertical installation made with all manner of soft furnishings. Think a plush oasis with vibrant colours and exquisite textures from carpets, cushions and more. Where: The Cinnamon Room stand, Theatreworks, 72-13 Mohamed Sultan Road, all day

Where: Kreon stand, Theatreworks, 72-13, Mohamed Sultan Road, all day

Greenlam x Index Design Reminiscing the old times where listening to song birds was a common sight in HDB estates, this installation serves as a conversation starter and gathering point. It relives the vibrancy of this dwindling practice through punchy coloured laminates that change gradually as you walk round, as though bringing you back through the passage of time. Where: Greenlam stand, Theatreworks, 72-13 Mohamed Sultan Road, all day

Journey East x Wynk Collaborative x Feral x UPSTAIRS_ In addition to hosting one of our Design Conversation panels, Journey East will also present several installations spread throughout the showroom by some of Singapore’s best emerging young practices: Wynk Collaborative, Feral and UPSTAIRS_. Where: Journey East, Tan Boon Liat Building #03-02, all day

DNA is a concept developed in collaboration with design studio Hunting & Narud, and provides a unique insight into how sustainability is at the core of all Flokk designs. What are the chairs and the products made of? Where do the materials come from? Highly inspired by the original design of the DNA concept at SFF by Hunting & Narud, Flokk Asia will at Satuday Indesign present the concept in their own way. In addition to new products, you can expect to experience unique design stories and an illustration of the basic DNA of Flokk.

Come visit Flokk Asia at @ Theatreworks, 72-13 Mohamed Sultan Road.
