Local knowledge on tap

The six Design Conversations panel discussions will give you access to thought leaders from Singapore’s workplace, retail, residential and hospitality sectors – and more. Seats have been filling fast for these free sessions, but there’ll be standing room available.

The workplace session ‘New Pathways To Wellness At Work’ will discuss how wellness has been targeted at two offices in Singapore’s new Paya Lebar Quarter development. The retail session ‘Today’s Retail Dynamics: Who’s Driving Consumer Experience’ will tap into the insights of retail design specialists and experience strategists to unearth how retail is shifting.

‘Innovative Strategies For HDB and Apartment Living’ will explore the path to fresh living environs. ‘Designpreneurship In A Challenging Market’ will bring together three early-to-mid career designers and architects who are innovating with their practice models and business approaches.

Our session ‘Tourist Or Global Citizen? Designing Hospitality In The Climate-Change Era’ will cut to the chase on what can designers and architects (not just operators) can do to create the conditions for conscious, low-impact hospitality experiences.

And finally, the Saturday Indesign Singapore Debate returns in 2019! The original debate team from 2017 is back on board, this time tackling the proposition that ‘Designers Are Lazy When It Comes To Sustainability’. We excpect nothing less than deep insight delivered with hilarity and good friendly jibes!

They’ll need to be on their toes, because our Saturday Indesign 2019 Debate Commentator is none other than impressive industry figure Sarah Ichioka – Director, Desire Lines, and Curator, International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam 2020.

“To have Indesign curate an event and have the entire community come down and engage in discourse and conversations about design – and of course the debate! – that’s a red-letter calendar event that everyone can look forward to. And I imagine it will only keep growing.”

– Tan Szue Hann (MINIWIZ Singapore), Saturday Indesign Ambassador
