Curator: not just another touristy card but an honest result of the thoughts, art and craft of a Singaporean.
Jacqueline Goh (Jackie) cranks out her kooky creations with ‘Klaus’, a Heidelberg “Windmill” in a backyard letterpress printing studio in Singapore. This series features quirky illustrations of the different eats, sights and activities in our tiny island. What better way for folks to get the best of these experiences than with a checklist?

Curator: it is really hard to find a jewellery tree that we like. it was love at first sight with the form and material.
Designed by Jessica Wong, beautifully crafted brass and marble, it takes the form of an “Arch Gate”, traditional Chinese gates that made a grand gesture of the simple act of entering and leaving the home. With that intention, this jewellery hanger takes the daily act of wearing and removing one's accessories, and turns it into an exercise in thoughtful reflection.

Curator: the classic lamp is sensitively modernised and revitalised, and one seats in my home as part of my design collection
In the 1930s, during Shanghai's golden age, booming business and flourishing trade stretched into long nights, and bankers found themselves cajoling numbers by the light of incandescent lamps soothed by emerald green shades. These lamps were so ubiquitous on their desks that they were named banker's lamps. Designer Jessica Wong transforms the classic returns with a modern touch. Simplified in its symmetry, with a black marble base for an unmistakable touch of luxe and a power cord clothed in a black-and-white weave for that old school touch.
Curator: a resistance against everything online to help you remember and enjoy the face to face connection with another human.
