National Design Council - Singapore

The exhibition Inside Heatherwick Studio premieres in Singapore at the start of a two year Asian tour.

Organiser: The British Council in collaboration with the GREAT Britain Campaign. The exhibition is part of the GREAT British Week and is a highlight of the Singapore Design Week.

The London based Heatherwick Studio epitomises the spirit of invention of a new wave of British designers. Featuring drawings, models, films and test pieces generated by speculative and built projects from the past 20 years, the exhibition is a window into the studio who have become renowned for projects such as the UK Pavilion at Shanghai Expo 2010. It offers unique insights into the ideas and experiments that go into realising projects that span architecture and engineering, as well as furniture, sculpture and product design. Curated by Kate Goodwin, Drue Heinz Curator at the Royal Academy of Arts, and designed by Heatherwick Studio, the exhibition captures the studio’s spirit of discovery, demonstrating their imaginative and entrepreneurial approach to design.
