Design Stars Showcase
Previously known as the Asian STAR Showcase, it featured a collection of pieces by 20 rising designers from countries across Asia,including Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, The Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam during IFFS 2015.
For the 2016 edition, it is renamed as Design STARS showcase to expand its reach to design talents from the international arena, who have made an impact with their works and their presence at IFFS will certainly act as a form of recognition for their distinguished achievements thus far. This collection of 20 Design STARS promises to add flavours and create buzz into this year’s new theme of Celebrate Inspirations for IFFS 2016.
Piazza/Design Hall (Hall 4)
As IFFS evolves and matures, it stays true to its calling to meld ‘design’ with the furniture business. In all these years, design has been and remains the focus of the event’s plans and execution, providing direction and injecting life to the show each year. While the show traditionally devotes an entire gallery to design, audiences can expect a novel approach to celebrating design at IFFS 2015.
Located right in the middle of the show is the Design Hall (Hall 4), where a creative buzz is keenly felt. Apart from the crème-de-la-crème group of exhibitors, several other key feature areas are also housed in this hall, including the IFFS Opening Ceremony, SingaPlural Seminars, Asian STAR Showcase, Furniture Design Award (FDA) Retrospective Showcase: Future Code by Anon Pairot, a lighting installation- The Cloud by Kenny Hong of 11H, as well as a kinetic sculpture – Breeze by Andre Tan of XOPO
Crème-de-la-crème Exhibitor Booths
Anchoring the exhibition in the Design Hall are the furniture industry’s movers and shakers with their innovative collections, unique ideas, and strong brand stories.
Known for their show-stopping designs, eight notable companies – d-Bodhi (Singapore), Far East Furniture (The Philippines), HALO (Hong Kong), Resource Decor (Hong Kong), Sharda Exports (India), Tropical Outdoor (Hong Kong), Umbrosa (Belgium), and Woven+ (The Netherlands) – offer buyers a wide range of furniture and furnishing products of various styles, gathered in close proximity.
Guests and buyers of these crème-de-la-crème exhibitors will be hosted in an exclusive lounge, Café SECRETS, where light refreshments will be served daily.
