‘elle & ill’ collection by christian ghion for office planner

french designer christian ghion has developed a set of executive desks entitled ‘elle & lui’ which was displayed at the international furniture fair singapore (IFFS) 2012. the singaporean furniture manufacturer ‘office planner’ and ghion collaborated to  create a collection using an environmentally sustainable production process. the main features of the millwork are the horizontal curvilinear desktop which is supported by a vertical translucent privacy panel. the connection of these two elements create a more open surface area and fluid motion to the execution of day-to-day tasks.

the furnishings were also adapted into two contrasting color combinations. the first, a polished and contemporary white tone with pink accents. the second, a more traditional black finish with orange and wood veneer panels. it allows the collection to be adapted to various working conditions evoking a sense of style and relationship throughout the pieces.

international furniture fair singapore / ASEAN furniture show (IFFS/AFS) the international furniture fair singapore, held in conjunction with the ASEAN furniture show (IFFS/AFS), began in 1981 and has since come to be regarded by industry experts as asia’s most prestigious furniture trade show. IFFS/AFS provides an effective marketing platform for regional companies to venture into the global market. as a testimony to the quality of the show, IFFS/AFS is the first asian-based international furniture fair to be accepted as a member of the elite union des foires internationales, a paris-based international authority on trade fairs. in addition, it is the only furniture trade event in singapore to be awarded the ‘approved international fair’ status by the singapore tourism board. IFFS/AFS is set to become even more comprehensive for the furniture players, with the addition of the inaugural deco asia and hospitality asia developed to expand the scope of the show.
