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. Extrapolating simple two-dimensional pie charts, their aim is to exploit Hallingdal 65’s full colour spectrum to convey the cultural diversity and dynamic growth of Singapore.

Studio mischer'traxler - Framed. Vienna-based Katharina Mischer and Thomas Traxler approach design with a keen focus on experiments, context and conceptual thinking, often making use of unexpected materials and characterised by external inputs, for example human interaction. This project highlights the Hallingdal fabric by framing it, and in doing so explores a new category of interior elements that can be used as furniture - for example the backside of a shelf or the upholstery of a bench.

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.

Adrien Rovero - Feux Continus. The initial concept for this lamp was born from the need to provide a lightsource that would not only illuminate a scene but also in some way define it, becoming part of the space and the interior architecture rather than an add-on accessory. Swiss designer Adrien Rovero has kept the construction of the lamp simple, allowing it to be dismantled and therefore used in multiple different locations should the need arise.
