The Space Program

The Space Program is a project initiated by Foreign Policy Design Group, in collaboration with Unlisted Collection and supported by National Heritage Board.

Quite a mouthful, huh? Well, that basically means there is now a pop-up store at the lobby of New Majestic Hotel, selling everyday items related to the Singaporean culture.

Carefully curated by Foreign Policy Design Group, you can expect books, art prints, DVDs, and even freshly roasted coffee beans from Papa Palheta.

I especially loved how the display shelves were constructed using stacked washboards. Very innovative and nostalgic!

I was elated to see the latest issue of apartamento here as I had been searching high and low for this. It was featured for a short fiction story set in olden Singapore.

The Space Program is happening from now till 11 October at the New Majestic Hotel. If you’re interested to see how contemporary popular culture can also be uniquely Singaporean, then you won’t want to miss this.
