Supermama

Supermama is a gallery shop based in Singapore.

Here, we collect, create and curate objects, and hope to engage every consumer as an individual, curating a space to allow everyone to slow down.

More than a select shop, Supermama works closely with many design/art studios in Singapore and traditional craft facilities in Japan to produce meaningful “omiyage/ お土産 ” (contemporary giftware) that represents the contemporary Singapore culture. Using culture as a context to design, Supermama delves into the fine line between cultural artefacts, everyday objects and the concept of basic luxury – that everyone can own a piece of heritage.



“Design and Make” Fair at the National Design Centre

From 8 to 20 March, the National Design Centre (NDC) will host the inaugural “Design and Make” Fair, a key highlight of Singapore Design Week 2016, organised by the DesignSingapore Council. The Fair will feature over 30 Singapore designers, craftsmen and artisans under one roof. Visitors to the NDC will get a chance to discover and buy a wide variety of ‘Designed in Singapore’ and ‘Made in Singapore’ products. They will also be able to try their hands at activities such as soap-crafting, glass-painting, leather-crafting and ceramic doll-making.

The “Design and Make” Fair aims to introduce the public to the growing and lively community of designers and makers in Singapore, many of whom are small business entrepreneurs who are producing delightful creations. The Fair also hopes to give everyone an opportunity to learn the basics of the creative making process, and how design is embedded in everyday living.
