Curated by global design thought leader Suzy Annetta, the designers hail from six different countries – Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, the Philippines and Vietnam.

The event is centred around the theme of ‘CRAFT + INDUSTRY: MAN + MACHINE’ and presented by the DesignSingapore Council (DSG). Various handmade, crafted, pure industrial and mass produced items from new and returning designers will be on display.

Visitors can also expect to see works of returning designers. Indonesia’s Eva Natasa will use natural indigo dye on her L02 stools, Singapore’s Tiffany Loy will showcase smaller textile design pieces and Thailand’s Teerapoj Teeropas will create a new collection in collaboration with artisans.

The showcase will be held in Hall A of the Marina Bay Sands Convention Centre.
