WAITING FOR TIME (NATIONAL STADIUM) PHOTOS BY ERWIN TAN

12.02.13 | Permalink | Comment

“I felt like I was capturing the soul of an old man, sitting in grandeur waiting for his eventual death.” – Erwin Tan

Chancing upon the old National Stadium amidst a mild drizzle along the way home from work, Erwin was struck by the dilapidation and loneliness of the place upon deciding to make a detour to capture the place.

He has since embarked on a life long journey to photograph buildings in Singapore awaiting to be torn down, such as East Coast McDonald’s at Marine Cove, Margaret Drive Estate and Henry Park Estate, and plans to travel around Asia to archive buildings facing a similar fate through his lens.

Join us for the opening reception of Waiting For Time (National Stadium) photo exhibition by Erwin Tan at Lomography Gallery Store this Friday.

Everyone is doing their bit to help The Philippines and so are we.

What we still have left is hope and soul.
We’ve gathered a line up of Filipino DJs/musicians and guests to perform for this fundraiser event. This is where you come in, where in every little way you can, please help.

THE DESIGN SOCIETY JOURNAL #6

09.18.13 | Permalink | Comment

The Design Society was started four years ago to promote visual communication in Singapore.
Their mission? To create a local platform for design activities and to celebrate design in all its entirety.

The Design Society Journal – a bi-annual publication intended to provide a platform for visual and textual design archival and documentation as well as to construct a fragment of Singapore¹s design history. It is also to address the lack of a local publication dedicated to serious and professional discourse on graphic design. With the quality of content and a highly targeted audience, the publication is set to become an important milestone for the Singapore design scene.

The Design Journal #6 Representation highlights:
2 Seeing – Short Essays Fresh Visions
16 The Sweet Spot Between Global and Local – Amanda Lee Koe finds an emerging Singapore identity in our cafes
20 Looking Good – Karen Huang on hairdressers and their stylish facades
22 Personal Portraiture – Geraldine Kang finds herself through photography
32 Mis-represented – Robert Zhao comes clean about his practice
46 For Vanity’s Sake – Michael Lee talks about inspiring the better man through art
58 20/20: A Vision Realised – Justin Zhuang rediscovers a series of national design exhibitions
68 (Re)Imagining The Past: The Possibility Of Design As Historiography – Randy Yeo and Lim Jin Li link the practices of design and history

BLACKMARKET NO.2 CEASED OPERATION AT ORCHARD CENTRAL

09.18.13 | Permalink | Comment

It’s with great disappointment that we must cease operations at #02-10 Orchard Central as of September 2013.

For nearly five years of operations, Blackmarket has worked with the most forward-thinking designers and artists all around the world. We build a strong conceptual avenue that pioneers the idea of regional design coalition. The movement came a long way from a small city like Singapore to be heard throughout the world. Being featured in established publications like V magazine, Monocle, Wallpaper, Vogue, NY times, just to name the few. Blackmarket is more than just a multi-label retail store, it is a movement that bridge network a cross different platforms.

It is with heavy heart to announce that we are no longer affiliated with Orchard Central and Far East Organization. Rentals and raising costs from the passed 3 years are restraining Blackmarket to continue in the vicinity. We are planning to rethink our strategy for this coming months and formulate an effective way of dealing with high-costs in Singapore. We are open with any ideas or leads from anyone of you to continue the goals of the blackmarket.

blackmarket no.2 retail space ceased operation but our movements carry on.

NEW STYLES IN FROM OLENKA

08.27.13 | Permalink | Comment

Olenka is synonymous with play, sophistication and timelessness. Born in Bali in 2011, this homegrown brand is breaking new ground in the Indonesian fashion industry and beyond.

Olenka’s third collection; KALEIDOSCOPE, is inspired by geometric shapes, gemstones and the art work of Kris Tate. It is a celebration of all things natural and elemental, bold and charismatic, feminine and fine design.

These new gems just arrived and we are stoked.
