AsiaStore Wins Museum Store Association Award for ‘Singapore Design Now’
NEW YORK, May 9, 2018—Asia Society is thrilled that the Museum Store Association has awarded AsiaStore with a Recognition Award for its Singapore Design Now retail showcase.
The MSA Recognition Awards acknowledge the essential role that nonprofit retail professionals and museum store vendors play in the success of cultural institutions.
Singapore Design Now was a collaboration between AsiaStore and a select group of Singapore designers, celebrating their artistic visions and providing a glimpse into the vibrancy and multiculturalism of Singapore. Featured products reflected the designers’ interpretation of Singapore’s rich culture and heritage, inspired by their experiences of Singapore. Hand-picked by each designer, items were evocative of Singapore’s evolving creative and design scenes.
Singapore Design Now was part of a Singapore Season at Asia Society, in collaboration with the Singapore Tourism Board. The season complemented the Asia Society Museum exhibition Secrets of the Sea: A Tang Shipwreck and Early Trade in Asia, co-organized by Asia Society and the Asian Civilisations Museum, Singapore, on view March 7 through June 4, 2017.
