Ministry of Design – Demographically Speaking. Demographically Speaking comprises three differently sized upholstered poufs, each reflecting the morphing ethnic diversity and growing population of Singapore over three periods: the past, the present and the future.

Katrin Sonnleitner - Cocco. Colours and surfaces define the character of an object. For example, the distinctive diamond pattern of the famous Chesterfield sofa is created by carefully placed buttons which are both a design detail and a means of construction. Questioning what could happen if this humble button was emphasised to be itself the upholstered element of a seating furniture, Katrin Sonnleitner's piece evolved.
