Colin Seah

Founder & Design Director - Ministry of Design, Singapore

REKA Conference 2019 Speaker

The exhibition captured a wide variety of exhibit profiles. It is an eye-opening experience for designers.

We, designers always need to know what is latest and what is available and sometimes we donโ€™t have time to entertain different buyers on a day-to-day basis.

Having a one-stop exhibition where we can source and discover is great.

Everybody involved in the industry should attend the conference โ€“ we only can learn together that is why I am attending this kind of conferences abroad, not only it is fun to learn in a new city but because

I believe that the future can only be built if we communicate and exchange ideas and not get stuck in our way of thinking;

because we learn that there is challenge and many different answers given by people from different cultural backgrounds.

REKA Conference 2019 Speaker

RiX opened up a lot of eyes, especially to the new technology, ideas and to what is happening outside in the world.

From here, they will know what can be done in Malaysia and applied in Malaysia.

It is the kind of platform where we share our design and experience

with the younger designers and to encourage them to interact with each other.

Resurgence

Arising from the possibilities accelerated by the post-pandemic, what kind of design ideas could contribute to these shifting and new needs and behaviors? How do we create design that resonate with these new conditions catalysed and accelerated by the global pandemic? How does the pandemic affect the spatial planning, materials, project timelines, business models amongst others?

This year REKA Conference 2022 gathers a group of creative thinkers to share their thoughts, approaches, interventions, and prepositions that has brought about positive change amidst the shifts, opportunities and possibilities. Ready to make that change, creating a rebirth, reborn and renaissance.
