The International Furniture Fair Singapore 2016 / 33rd ASEAN Furniture Show (IFFS/AFS) returns to Singapore from March 10 to 13 in conjunction with The Décor Show and furniPRO Asia, with a new theme, ‘Design, Inspiration, and Trade’.
“Good designs stem from inspirational experiences, and a company with a winning product understandably receives positive attention. This, in turn, leads to higher chances of success from a business standpoint. The three elements in the tagline share a synergistic relationship that ultimately promotes a thriving furniture industry,” said Ernie Koh, Chairman of IFFS Pte Ltd.
For the first time, IFFS will feature a ‘Garden and Outdoor’ Pavilion that clusters international exhibitors with garden or outdoor offerings. The IFFS will also be extended outside with an alfresco lounge, decorated and managed by outdoor furniture and lighting manufacturer Maiori Design.
As with previous years, the Design and International Brands Hall (Hall 4) will host activities that celebrate design and innovation, while the Gallery of ArtForms will demonstrate how furniture products and accessories can be transformed into art pieces and sculptures. The Design STARS (formerly known as Asian STAR) showcase will continue to feature a collection of pieces by rising designers across the globe.
To enhance the business networking experience, a series of thematic lounges will bring out the authentic flavours of each partner country. Visitors will also benefit from a series of design dialogues and business seminars.
“IFFS 2016 will present the industry with an all-new experience, one that is not just design-centric and inspirational, but that still builds upon its traditional role as the choice business platform that connects exhibitors with buyers from across the world,” added Mr Koh.
