30th August to 2nd Sept – I was engaged by The Creative Voice and Synergraphic to co-curate, exhibit and event plan the company’s 30th Anniversary showcase. I worked on the project for two and half months to organise and present the artworks and history of the company from 30 years ago.

Synergraphic was started by Singaporean Glass Artist, Florence Ang who created a humble glass art studio with a small kiln for fusing glass pieces. Today, Synergraphic is known for designing and experimenting with various types of glass and techniques including digital printing on glass for large scale sculpture commissions, interiors and exteriors buildings and hotels.

The Guest of Honour for the evening of 30th August was Mr Jeffery Ho, Director of DesignCouncil Singapore. He shared how companies such as Synergraphic continue to push frontiers in design and art, to help shape our visual culture and aesthetics in Singapore.

Besides the celebration of the company’s 30 year anniversary, it was also a time to celebrate the founder’s 60th birthday. The night drew in a crowd of over 150 attendees with familiar faces from the Design Industry.
