Between Two Worlds – Light to Night Festival 2020

Between Two Worlds – Light to Night Festival 2020 1000 662 Design Business Chamber Singapore

Quarter means four. And in @quarters.sg, they undergird Design, Research, Community, and Craft in everything they do. Boundaries between art, architecture and literature were transcended in this art installation inspired by Italo Calvino’s text, “Invisible Cities”.

“We inscribed the walls and mirrors with lines of Kevin Wong’s poetry that spoke of love and loss, letting visitors reflect on the mixed narratives of progress in light of the surrounding historic monuments on site.”

Four local writers wrote site-specific sonnets that were interpreted into spatial sculptures by architects. The end result was a multi-faceted narrative that ties fragments of history and present realities within specific historic markets in Singapore’s civic district. Between Two Worlds at Esplanade Park is an intimate passageway surrounded by mirrored memory pools.

DBS Giving Tree

DBS Giving Tree 1000 790 Design Business Chamber Singapore

Recognising the considerable waste generated from holiday festivities, DBS came up with this Christmas decoration to give back to the planet. Made with upcycled wood from used shipping pallets, the trees were repurposed as Chinese New Year decorations and thereafter as fixtures in the DBS Treasures Lounge at Changi Airport Terminal 3. Decorations were also made entirely from sustainable materials.

Vanessa Lin, Lead of Employee Experience and Communications, Corporate Real Estate Strategy and Administration, DBS Bank

We are excited to be a recipient of the inaugural 2021 SG Mark Award for Sustainable Design. Sustainability has always been at the core of DBS’ purpose-driven DNA. We strive to embed sustainability in everything we do, and the birth of this project stems from a question that we asked ourselves:

“What if our decorations made the earth better?”


Rooted in our drive to be more involved in the circular economy and achieve net zero energy operations, the DBS Giving Tree project is a ground-up initiative that demonstrates the small ways we can contribute to changes in our surroundings, play our part and give back to the community and planet even during the festive season, and inspire more sustainable actions every day!

The FUGA Farm Community 1000 667 Design Business Chamber Singapore

With its contemporary architectural design, this suburban farm located in the outskirts of Beijing has become a standard for farm modernisation. Transcending the notions of the traditional Chinese farm, FUGA inspires city dwellers to look beyond the negative aspects of farming, and to get interested and involved with sustainable farming, recycling and reusing.

How has SG Mark helped you in your area of work?

Winning the SG Mark has given us the endorsement we need to continue spearheading projects related to environmental awareness, motivating us to further advocate for incorporating sustainability concepts throughout our work. Throughout our projects, we have also been promoting community participation and the revival of traditional craftsmanship.

We believe that such concepts should extend beyond exterior projects such as farms and gardens, and be applied to interior commercial spaces and facilities. The SG Mark has allowed us to expand our network, enabling us to share our experiences with new friends and professionals to come up with new ideas and design concepts that provide more fuel for our work.

How do you think your design has impacted users?

Our design focuses on solving problems using existing resources. So for example to minimize unnecessary materials wastage, we incorporate design elements that make it easy to recycle, reduce and reuse, while educating workers to use their skills and new methods to make small changes with great impact. Through this, we have been able to promote sustainability concepts, such as raising awareness for better waste management and reviving forgotten craftsmanship.

Reveal Your Thaidentity: Experience the Thai Way in Thailand

Reveal Your Thaidentity: Experience the Thai Way in Thailand 1000 563 Design Business Chamber Singapore

No reason for Singaporeans to visit the Land of Smiles because they’ve visited Thai padi fields or shopped at Chatuchak? The Thai Tourism Authority convinces Singaporeans otherwise in this marketing campaign. Bold caricatures and animation to showcase the Thai people, culture and charm in a fun and relatable manner are used to entice Singaporeans to re-visit Thailand.

How do you think Reveal Your Thaidentity has impacted users?

“Add some flavour, spice it up, and let the rhythm move our audience”.


We had never intended to retell the old touristic tales of Thailand. Instead, it was all about the fun and excitement that one usually experienced when travelling to Thailand – portrayed in a more caricature way.

We were delighted by the positive response to the campaign. The fact that our audiences can genuinely relate and get entertained by the campaign demonstrates the values of communication design when approaching it with authenticity and relevance.

With a name inspired by Irène Joliot-Curie, Nobel Laureate in Chemistry and women’s rights advocate, IRÉN Skin positions itself as skincare that is fun to use, with real results backed by science. Through a soft, vibrant colour palette, a fun and trendy tone of voice, and easy-to-use packaging with a distinctive opening mechanism, it appeals to the savvy female consumer.

“Our aim was to create a fuss-free and customised experience for the user, the packaging’s mechanism is designed in such a way that the user can open the packaging with just a thumb-flick.”

Inspired by the seven superfruits which define the base formula, each packaging is crafted uniquely with its respective icon and colour.

Users can conveniently identify their personal set of icons and colour palette based on their skin’s needs.

Immersive Experience

Immersive Experience 1000 565 Design Business Chamber Singapore

Can’t attend a physical business event due to Covid-19? The Indonesia Startup Insight Asia virtual event demonstrates that an immersive 3D experience is still possible through the use of technology such as photographic rendering, and realistic design incorporating physical elements into the virtual space. Following its success, markets as far flung as Belgium and Israel have been inspired by it.
