Discovered Singapore

Touch, reflection and strength. How can we foster a sense of touch in an increasingly virtual world? 
The American Hardwood Export Council presents a selection from Discovered. This curation of designs from the original London exhibition is a platform to promote and support design’s next generation. 

10 Designers from the Asia Pacific region were amongst those selected to create a piece that represents the functional and emotional connections to our everyday objects, guided by the themes of touch, reflection, and strength. 

Considering the materials’ tactility as a key component of the creative and production processes, the designers chose from four sustainable U.S. hardwoods: red oak, cherry, hard and soft maple. 

Manufactured by partners in Malaysia and Sydney, the pieces will be on display at Red Dot Design Museum, Singapore from 16th to 22nd May 2024.
