With items like the Onde mirrors (inspired by the namesake coconut dessert), it’s obvious that Studio Kallang doesn’t take itself too seriously.
The studio, located at Blk 21 of the Mapletree Industrial Building at Kallang Avenue is one of the newest kids on the block in Singapore’s bubbling design scene, focusing on furniture, homeware objects and installations. It was launched last month by Faezah Shaharuddin, who describes her design aesthetic as “chic but playful”.
“I love combinations of unexpected things, from material to colour,” says the 26-year-old. “I think I gravitate to things that have personality, but not in a way that’s in your face.”
