at the international furniture fair singapore 2012 the tokyo-based firm koji sekita design presented their project ‘watching you’ within the young talent zone ‘platform’. composed of paper sheets, the cardstock is scored and folded in a zigzag pattern. each identical piece is then joined, creating the form of a chair. the strength of the seating object comes from the honeycomb pattern generated from the assembling the individual parts. due to the flexible nature of the construction, any length of chair or bench can be produced. the accumulation and replication found in the manufacturing of ‘watching you’ is a signature of sekita.

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.
