（29 January 2016, Friday）Expect to have your senses tantalised and challenged at this year’s SingaPlural design festival. The fifth edition of the festival, which runs from March 7 to 13, will carry the theme Senses — The Art And Science Of Experiences. In keeping with Singapore’s recent status as UNESCO Creative City of Design, the festival will present an expanded line-up of activities and installations, which will be curated by design studio PLUS Collaboratives and creative agency GOVT. These will give visitors a “unique sensorial experience” upon entering the festival premises at 99 Beach Road.
Other highlights include the festival’s flagship programme Project X, where solid surfaces company Luxx NewHouse will partner with designers such as Studio Juju and ceramics collective Weekend Worker. Expect innovative creations, too, from the younger generation of talents, such as Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts graduate Celine Ng, who will be working with furniture store XTRA and Swedish flooring company BOLON for an underwater-inspired installation. There will also be the festival’s first on-site performance, a collaboration between Singapore-based artist Daniela Beltrani and designer Wong Hui Ee.
