Visions of the Future is a curated showcase of seven designs by emerging Singaporean designers. Each design has been hand-selected for its visionary approach to current issues, with key focuses of the showcase looking at the improvement of health and wellbeing, designing for multigenerational living, sustainable processes, new materials and safety through design.
The designers have been mentored throughout the process by the established design duo Wendy Chua & Gustavo Maggio, and have adapted admirably in developing products that respond to the new pandemic world that we find ourselves in.
As cities begin a slow return to some semblance of normality and the initial alarm to the public health crisis subsides, people begin to grapple with what it means to live in a pandemic state of mind. The effects of quarantine fatigue and isolation linger; we see the repercussions in the cognitive decline of seniors with dementia and the rise in mental health cases of anxiety and depression.
Come visit the exhibition and see how the design solutions help answer the question, “how might design help us to thrive despite the challenges of the moment and reimagine hope in such dire times?”
The exhibition has an online and physical component, so if you can't come down personally, join us for the digital programming.
