Design Trails: Thoughtful Design: "Design Trails is back with the theme - Thoughtful Design! In this third instalment of the SDW Design Trails, participants will get to travel to a specially curated line-up of places to see and experience thoughtful products and experiences.
Imagine products and experiences where every aspect of its creation has been thoroughly considered by the designer – from its source, processes, users, context, to the values it upholds. Created with a degree of care and mindfulness, these products and experiences exude quality and carry great meaning that can only come about when the designers behind it contemplate every decision, not just with their minds but with all their senses.
Participants may also hop on and off the free shuttle bus at any of the delightful stops in Design Trails: Thoughtful Design, which will take place over the closing weekend of the Singapore Design Week from 19-20 March." (new.designsingapore.org / Design Trails 2016 Registration)
