Details

The National Heritage Board’s (NHB) Craft X Design scheme seeks to raise the profile of local intangible cultural heritage (ICH) practitioners and increase the access of these practitioners to new markets, networks, and ideas. The inaugural scheme pairs four traditional craft practitioners with four local designers and/or studios, to collaborate and explore how traditional crafts can be reimagined into innovative and modern products that embody Singapore’s rich and diverse cultural heritage. The scheme further supports the development and documentation of these products over a period of six months. 

This showcase represents the final stage of the Craft X Design scheme and presents the product prototypes co-produced by the four pairs which range from furniture to fashion to metalware. Through the showcase, NHB hopes to highlight the possibilities that can emerge from the intersections of craft and design, culture and creativity, tradition and modernity. 

Presented by National Heritage Board. Supported by the DesignSingapore Council and the National Design Centre.

This showcase is accompanied by a series of talks and workshops, find out more about the Craft, Technology, and Innovation: Bridging the Traditional and the Contemporary talk & workshop here!
