Every city has its own rhythm and more than half of the world’s population marches to an urban beat. I’ve always lived in a city—so far I’ve experienced the chaotic tempo of Manila, the frenetic yet ordered cadence of Tokyo, the thrilling pace of Hong Kong and now, the tropical hum of Singapore. Cities captivate with their unrelenting change, informed by the collective ambition of their citizens, resulting in constantly evolving streets and skylines. By 2050, a United Nations study estimates that 70 per cent of us will be living in a city, making it in everyone’s interest to create a better and more liveable place. Lucky for us in Singapore, the Design 2025 report mandates a creation of a “more lovable”, innovative, and design-led city in less than a decade. In…

GRACE MA Grace picks out Hong Kong as her preferred destination: “I love how Hong Kong’s traditions and old-school ways remain strong despite its modernity.” She quips: “Nothing screams homecoming more than a gruff waiter serving tea with a clatter on the table, while shouting your order across the cha chan teng.” For this issue’s Spaces section, Grace looks into the details that can turn your bathroom into a stylish sanctuary (page 142). JASPER YU Jasper cites Reykjavik in Iceland as one of the most unforgettable cities he has visited. He loves how the capital city sparkles with life, while being surrounded by natural beauty. “Twinkling stars set the scene at night, with a dancing array of lights,” he muses. Aptly for this issue, he photographed a home that celebrates its Nordic inspiration—check…

EASTERN INSPIRATION “Fabrics add so much atmosphere and character to a room,” says textile designer Pascal Walter. And looking at his collection for Cetec, we’re inclined to agree. Comprising 10 fabrics, the Origin of Occident collection celebrates Asia with a European twist, with chinoiserie details such as cherry blossom motifs, ikat-inspired patterns and lustrous, silk-like sheers. Available at 36 Armenian Street, #02-05, cetec.com.hk SIMPLE PLEASURES A minimalist design dictum keeps spaces sleek and neat, with every decorative element in its right place—a philosophy celebrated at Actus Häuse by Atomi. The Japanese furniture brand makes its return to Singapore with a standalone store next to multi-label boutique Atomi. Think clean lines, the warmth of wood and cosy textures, all of which marry the best of Scandinavian influence with Japanese attention to detail. Available at…

1 SCENE SHANG SHANG SYSTEM “This modular shelving system combines classic Chinese-style lines with modern details—the new blush shade also adds a feminine touch to its masculine edges.” 2 MINI WINDOWS — NEIL ROAD BY ARTHUR P Y TING “I love how the white void places attention on the complexity of the shophouse scene, which is artfully framed in a hexagon.” 3 FOREST&WHALE INCENSE BURNER “Crafted by a 69-year-old local artisan, this incense burner is made of brass caps originally used for car parts—it also makes a simple statement about living mindfully.” 4 LOST GUIDES — SINGAPORE “I enjoy poring over the informative insider tips shared in the Lost Guides— Anna Chittenden has written a book really made for people who love design and authentic experiences.” Available at Scene Shang, shop.sceneshang.com…

Nearly a century later, the Art Deco movement continues to be hugely influential today. Originating in Paris just before the outbreak of the First World War, Art Deco was one of the most popular international design movements between the 1920s and late ’30s. Its influence can be seen in a variety of places—such as the architecture of the Chrysler Building and the Rockefeller Center in New York City, as well as in jewellery, fashion, furniture and lighting. Contemporary designers have also referenced the Art Deco era, creating chandeliers and lamps that are not only sources of illumination, but also eye-catching works of art. Characterised by strong geometric shapes—sweeping curves and sunburst motifs—and materials such as gold-plated metal, glass, marble and lacquer, these dramatic designs easily liven up any space. “A symbol…
