A Noah’s Ark for
Singapore Art and Design
Curated by Kinetic Singapore and hosted by Scotts Square, K+ brings you artists who peddle the extraordinary, things that tickle the imagination, brands that stand out from the bland. Since its inaugural show in January 2015, K+ Curatorial Space has come a long way. In just 16 months it has helmed over 18 shows and worked with 32 collaborators from Singapore and all over the world.
On 1 July 2016, K+ is taking the next step in bringing things together and playing catalyst to Singapore’s burgeoning design scene. K+ is relaunching as a new multi-concept shop, a space where art meets retail meets community. With the continual support of Scotts Square, this shop will be the largest K+ space by far at over 4000 square feet and will feature a larger Gallery space, a Retail space and a new Community space.
To commemorate its brand new space, K+ will be shining the Gallery spotlight on local furniture designer Nathan Yong from 1 July to 14 August 2016. As a two time winner of the prestigious Red Dot Concept Design Award, and winner of the equally acclaimed President’s Design Award for Designer of the Year, there is no better creator to inaugurate the gallery’s first show.
K+ will be presenting Yong’s new work under the eponymous label Nathan Yong Design as well as Grafunkt by Nathan Yong. Inspired by his observations on the visual environment around him, Yong’s new pieces will challenge the very existence of designed objects and incorporate techniques that add a light, poetic touch. After the show, the new line of products will be retailed exclusively at K+ Curatorial Space until February 2017.
