We love how many pop ups are… well… popping up… in Singapore.
Carmen found out about an awesome popup currently running on a rooftop in the middle of Chinatown – People’s Park Complex to be precise, and had to check it out!
Edible gardens (one of the first to introduce urban agriculture to Singapore!) is keen to promote the concept of urban farming, and to start of 2014 they decided to reach out to the public via a pop up store, teaming up with a couple of awesome local online retailers to help spread the word. Eventually by the end of May they will be using the space to create one of the LARGEST URBAN GARDENS in ASIA!!! How exciting is that?
The online retailers they have teamed up with are:
Naiise: (www.naiise.com) stocks a range of furniture and interesting gifts – if you are looking for unique finds then this is a great place to start.
Here are some pics of the pop up space, open until the end of the month.
Loving these prints below. Can you believe they are actually real photographs (not illustrations)!
All the below items are made using RICE HUSK. No plastic at all – isn’t that amazeballs?! They are all microwaveable too and we can imagine they are a lot safer then heating up that plastic tupperware. Love the coffee cup too… Oh and as you can see in the far right corner, they had those fun stripey straws too which we love for parties!
Now here is something Carmen considered as one of the highlights. They had created “living” table decorations – as you can see by the below placemats (YES they are real!!)! Having said that, they are really only meant to be hung on the wall – which in itself is so cool! Apparently they are some type of mossy plant – and they smell amazing!
