The 5th collaboration between Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts and King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi (KMUTT), FurnitureORIGINS 2018 challenges the theme of “MICRO BIG”. It explores the idea of designing space-saving furniture which looks aesthetically pleasing when placed within a limited space.
During the collaboration, 16 students were mentored by lecturers from the institutions’ own lecturers - Fadzli Jamil and Kwek Sin Yee from NAFA, and Duangkamol Limwongse, Karuna Kleubmongkol as well as Shizu Takami from KMUTT. They are 3D Design students from NAFA’s Furniture and Spatial Design course (School of Art and Design) and KMUTT’s Industrial Design and Interior Architecture disciplines (School of Architecture and Design).
This learning exchange focused on developing skills in design professionalism and entrepreneurship and establishing a network between students from the two countries.
FurnitureOrigins 2018 is part of a slew of activities under Singapore Design Week 2018.
