editor’s note

The month of August brings a celebratory mood as we mark the 54th anniversary of our city state; it’s also a timely reminder to fete the achievements of our homegrown talents. This issue, we showcase the diverse work of local creatives from over 20 studios across design disciplines. To start, we present homeware pieces and furniture crafted by Singapore designers (page 40), ranging from elegant vases to stylish side tables. Inspired by our nation’s unabashed passion for food and our buzzing dining scene, we look to remarkable restaurants (page 64) that pair each establishment’s unique culinary philosophy with a multi-sensory experience. These notable projects show that there is much more to crafting a memorable space than creating that “Instagram” moment. The homes featured in this issue similarly pay heed to the art…

If your minimalist interior lacks that cosy touch, add a rug to up the snug appeal of your room. Designed by Raphael Navot as part of the Nativ collection for Roche Bobois, the Fusion and Merge rugs feature hand-knotted abstract designs in a natural wool blend. These rugs are awash in sunset shades and oceanic tones that loosely reference lofty mountains, and the ebbs and flows of the sea. Pair them with Dot, a spherical seat on a chrome-plated swivel base; upholstered in a thick elastic fabric over a solid fir wood and pine plywood structure, the armchair offers a comforting embrace with its curvy form. Available at Roche Bobois at Boon Siew Building; roche-bobois.com ASIAN SOUL Homegrown design is already a pertinent part of the ethos of Industry+, a Singapore-based production company co-founded…

STAY: HOTEL CONSERVATORIUM The hotel’s homage to Rembrandt van Rijn comes in the form of The Art Suite by Rembrandt, a room crafted in his memory by interior designer Irma Boom, featuring works by Dutch artist Sarah van Sonsbeeck that peep out from nooks and corners. Take a step back, and you’ll realise that these artistic elements are in fact details inspired by the Dutch painter’s celebrated piece, The Night Watch. Sonsbeeck’s interpretation of these come together with other nuances that invite further inspection. Boom’s carefully articulated colour scheme borrows its earthy palette from the painting and complements the setting without interfering with the minimalist interior by Piero Lissoni, the Italian architect responsible for the 2008 redesign of Sweelinck Conservatorium into the present-day Hotel Conservatorium. The hotel has also partnered with Rijksmuseum, offering…

For Andrea Molteni, the decision to join the family business was never a question of why, but when. “I’ve never really posed the question to myself to do something different,” he shares. “I was always fascinated with products, and how things work and get put together. It came very naturally to step into the business.” Molteni is from the third generation of the founding family; the group operates the namesake furniture brand Molteni&C, office furnishing brands Unifor and Citterio, and kitchen systems brand Dada. Today, the group has showrooms in 10 countries; its Molteni&C | Dada store here recently moved to Winsland House. What was it like growing up in a design-driven family? Since I was five, we would go on holiday with the architects who are also friends of my parents and…
