Emerge exhibition showcases Southeast Asian design at Singapore Design Week
Singapore Design Week exhibition Emerge has presented work ranging from handcraftto 3D-printed furniture by over 50 designers from across Southeast Asia.
Taking place in Singapore at the design fair Find, the exhibition showcases furniture, lighting and textiles produced by designers from Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, the Philippines and Vietnam using a variety of production techniques.
"We've got designer-makers who are handcrafting their own work, designers who are collaborating with craftspeople using really ancient skills and techniques, while other designers have collaborated with factories or are using third-generation family-owned factories," curator Suzy Annetta told Dezeen.
"There are young designers who really believe strongly in the history and traditional craft of their country and want to preserve that and then on the other hand, you have that desire to explore what can be done with industrial production or modern technologies like 3D printing," she added.
"It wasn't really with the idea of comparing or contrasting or suggesting that one is better than the other. It was really to give the audience a snapshot of where the design industry is at in Southeast Asia at the moment."
