We would like to invite everyone to the international launch of the PLAYplay collection at this year’s International Furniture Fair Singapore. After this showing on our homeground, we will be bringing the collection to our other homeground, Italy, for the Milan Design Week!

PLAYplay is a daring collection crafted for smart, compact living spaces and fun-loving + playful people, brought to life by award-winning design duo Lanzavecchia + Wai, exclusively for Journey East.

The spirit of play forms the driving narrative behind the collection, each piece consciously representing the young-minded positivity of a life filled with fun.

The rich colours are proudly representative of South East Asia – collected, sorted, and selected to give life to each piece in the collection.

Transition tile collection
by Lanzavecchia + Wai for Mirage® 

08 – 11 March 2016 – Maison & Objet Asia

Stand I15 – J16 / Sands Expo and Convention Center, Singapore

Our first tile collection for Mirage® will be showing at for the first time in Singapore.

We are proud and thrilled to have this re-thought product system being exposed and presented at Maison & Objet Asia.

Transition goes beyond the canons of imitation, defining a new, timeless and contemporary nature of porcelain stoneware whose roots lie in Italian culture and tradition; the potential of the tiling system is unlocked when used as zonal demarcations in public areas as well as way-finding purposes.

The gradient pattern provides the interior architect components with which to lead the eye from one space, and one surface, to the next. This tile system is for contract, hospitality to residential contexts, both aesthetically and functionally.
