It’s Singapore Design Week 2018 and suddenly ‘Design’ has strangely disappeared from the face of the earth. To solve this mystery, we’ve gathered the finest minds in the field to investigate and diagnose this abnormality. Join us and a curious room of people (who on normal days, dissect, create, thinking, tinker with rockets, robots, food, fashion, furniture, structures, web apps, and other things in between), as we find ourselves lost and wondering what to do without it. It’s going to be a fun, hilarious ride as we try our best (and fail) to avoid using ‘Design’ in our discussion. Stick around for the after party with drinks, people, and plenty of hands on opportunity to explore some of the made objects and tools, and discover for yourself this dangerous, delirious mystery.


Featuring serious folks who dissect, create, think, and tinker with:

Rockets (Gilmour Space Technologies)

Web apps (Thomas Gorissen)

AR (Sanjay Pushparajan, Outpost)

Fashion (Dinu Bodiciu)

Furnitures (MODU Design)

Brand (Grace Italiaander, Cowan)
