Design think-tank Foreign Policy have taken inspiration from the hard work and determination of early Singaporeans in their Space Program installation.

Set up at the New Majestic Hotel, the work utilises over 200 washboards – a nod to the elbow grease employed by Singaporean immigrants in the early days of the island – stacked and arranged to provide a beautiful display platform for art objects, cultural items and delightfully designed stuff you can buy. You can also sit on some of it, but you’d better have a quick look there’s nothing important carefully placed where you are about to park yourself.

Foreign Policy says the installation, while temporary, is not pop-up retail, and the lifespan of the exhibit is limited only by the hosts, who provide the space and finance while the designers do the rest.
