abie abdillah of studiohiji is passionate about working with rattan – a material which, based on his indonesian roots, is easy to come by. produced for singaporean company for the common goods, the series is a collection of lightweight pieces that aim to both change existing perceptions and rekindle interest in the traditional material and its various possibilities. thanks to the handiwork of skilled craftsmen, abdillah was able to do away with customary bindings and rituals, with the design boasting exposed joinery and bold bursts of vibrant color. the series consists of chairs, coffee and side tables, all completed with a range of metal and fabric color palettes.

 

studiohiji presented their work at the 2015 edition of international furniture fair singapore (IFFS), asia’s premier sourcing platform and design-led exhibition. IFFS is a partner event of singapore design week and is held annually in conjunction with SingaPlural. see here for designboom’s full coverage of this year’s events.

SingaPlural returns for a 4th edition from march 10 – 15, 2015 at 99 beach road to showcase the best design elements from the multi-faceted creative spectrum — advertising, architecture, urban planning, landscape architecture, as well as interior, furniture, graphic and fashion design. organized by the singapore furniture industries council (SFIC) since 2012, the name ‘SingaPlural’ is derived from a combination of the terms ‘singular’ and ‘plural’; and was conceived from the need to create a common platform to bridge designers with the industry. SingaPlural 2015 is the anchor event of the singapore design week and is held in conjunction with international furniture fair singapore 2015/32nd ASEAN furniture show, the décor show 2015 and hospitality 360º.
