After a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic, Singapore Design Week (SDW) is back in full force. The design festival, which occurs on 16 to 25 September this year and technically spans slightly more than a week, focuses on creativity and innovation by celebrating some of the region’s brightest names in design.
Having undergone a major strategic review in the past two years, the festival now returns with a brand-new vision shaped by three festival pillars: Design Futures, Design Marketplace, and Design Impact.
This year, SDW is packed with a slew of programmes, events and installations across Singapore that will put a spotlight on Southeast Asian design. United by the three festival pillars, SDW 2022 will feature more than 50 events and 200 designers over the course of 10 days.
Here, we round up the art, design and architecture highlights to catch at this year’s festival.
