We've seen a fair share of Salone previews of European firms and a couple of Japan's big names, but let's not forget that it's an international affair—the multi-venue design show is as much a launchpad for emerging designers as it is a platform for established ones.
Singapore's Creativeans, for one, is proud to present Treasures of the Little Red Dot at Salone Satellite 2011:
Singapore is a sunny island off the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula. With just over 5 million multicultural inhabitants and a very brief historical presence, art and design in Singapore take their inspirations from the immediate realities and its closely knitted society... from the treasures of the little red dot.
The exhibition consists of eight projects by four up-and-coming Singaporean designers, each of whom spent the past six months collaborating with local craftsmen on the process from prototype to final product. The projects include:
"Chapter 57" (pictured above) by Yulia Saksen
"Terra" (pictured below) &"Jiak" by Kimming Yap
"Adapt" & "Sprout" by Sharina Bi
"Bam," "Dek" & "Ting" by Khairul Hussin
Treasures of the Little Red Dot will be on view at Salone Satellite 2011, Stand D12
