Greek philosopher Aristotle once said, “patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet”. This saying holds true for the team behind this year’s Singapore Interior Design Festival (SIDFest), which will run from June 18 to July 18 this year at the National Design Centre.
In its third edition, the festival was put on hiatus last year due to the pandemic restrictions; originally planned to run in May, its launch was further delayed by the tightened restrictions in the recent months. Presented by the Society of Interior Designers, the month-long festival brings designers and design enthusiasts together to celebrate innovative ideas and positive perspectives.
“SIDFest is an event for the public to enjoy, an opportunity for people outside the design community to see and experience good design,” says festival director Dennis Cheok, who also helms local design studio UPSTRS_.
“We had to postpone this year’s event by a month due to the heightened measures. But considering that we had to cancel last year’s edition, we are simply thankful to have been able to organise this year’s special edition, where we have placed innovation at the forefront while tackling key issues like the impact of design in a post-Covid-19 world.”
