Wallpaper* Handmade On Tour 2018 is a distilled collection of 22 one-off wonders from Handmade 2018, Wallpaper* magazine’s ambitious annual project dedicated to the marriage of craftsmanship and design. The collection arrives in Singapore – its first and only stop – fresh from its debut at the Milan Design Week.
The theme for the Wallpaper* Handmade exhibition was Wellness & Wonder, with design talent from all over the world taking visitors on a quest for mental and corporeal wellbeing. The Milan audience saw objects that accessorised the cult of self-improvement, exercised the cerebellum, replenished the body, jet-washed the life force and restored the innate harmony of the self.
Handmade On Tour 2018 will include seven pieces created by Singapore-based talent, Studio Juju, Stolen, Theseus Chan, Olivia Lee, Gabriel Tan Studio, WOHAbeing and Edmund Zhang, who will be unveiling his new lamp made in collaboration with Italian manufacturer Slamp exclusively for Handmade On Tour.
Now embarking on its tenth year, Handmade is Wallpaper’s most proudly ambitious annual project – the creation of a groundbreaking exhibition and a special edition of the magazine, dedicated to the marriage of craftsmanship and design through the essence of customisation. Acting as patron and creative director, Wallpaper* cherry-picks a selection of some of the world’s finest artists, craftsmen, makers and manufacturers, commissioning unique and one-off luxury items of furniture, fittings, food stuffs, fashions and much more.
The Wallpaper* Handmade Exhibition is only open on Tuesdays to Sundays.
