INTRODUCTION

2019 marks the 20th anniversary of Nathan Yong’s foray into the furniture scene. Yong was then the first Singaporean to gain global acclaim and attention thanks to collaborations with international brands, paving the way for a younger generation of designers.

This retrospective show aims to share the success and creativity of Nathan Yong’s work with the public and the media, students and young designers, in Singapore and further afield.

EXHIBITION

Scenography evoking an almost futurist, cocoon-like art gallery. With white backdrop made of Tyvek fabric hint to the story told through the objects; diaphanous yet obvious, light but indestructible, this unusual backdrop highlights the products displayed turning them into lifelike paintings.

Exhibition Date: 14.09.19 – 06.10.19
Opening hours: 9am - 9pm daily
