New home design exhibition Design Assemblieswhich will be held at Stamford Arts Centre – aims to challenge contemporary themes of resource scarcity, an ageing population and an ever evolving work-life arrangement with innovative approaches that create inter-connective living spaces.

On Sep 22, the exhibition will be open from 5.30 pm to 10 pm in conjunction with Friday Late as part of the Singapore Design Week. From Sep 23 to 25, the exhibition will open from 10 am to 6 pm.

Design Assemblies will display projects, products and activities under the Piemonte Home Design project, which is inspired by the Piedmont region in Italy. 

According to Piemonte Home Design, the exhibition aims to explore what design objects are capable of, designing them into a “whole system coherent with needs, expectations and resources… [to fit] a context such as… Singapore”.

The exhibition will be structured as a pavilion with four parts. 

Its opening part will take the form of a narration covering the history of Piedmont, allowing visitors to understand the influences behind the design principles present in the exhibition.

After moving on from the narration, visitors will be greeted with the Plug-in house, which imagines “livable, flexible, and healthy” spaces through creative use of storage and design elements.

The third section of the exhibition will see visitors imagining their own ideal home using the showcase’s contributors’ catalogue of shapes, colours and materials. 

The exhibition will close with a space where visitors will learn about the contributing designers and companies that produce the components that make up a home.
