Raffles Designers designs MUJI Re-inspire Exhibition 2023
Muji Re- Opening at Plaza Singapura

Raffles College of Higher Education would like to congratulate MUJI Singapore on the grand opening of the largest global flagship store in Southeast Asia on 22 November 2023.

MUJI Plaza Singapura Global Flagship Store is the biggest MUJI store in Singapore to date and a significant milestone for MUJI Singapore over the 20 years in Singapore. This expansive store, covering 38,000 square feet in the heart of the city, serves as the primary anchor to display the entire comprehensive product range (across concept, scale, and variety).

Within this flagship store, “Open MUJI” is a space for MUJI Singapore to partner with local designers and creators to create exhibition and workshops, enabling MUJI Plaza Singapura to be a place for the community to exchange ideas, and for learning and education. Raffles College of Higher Education is honoured to be the FIRST education institution to present, “RE-Inspire” – the first sustainable exhibition of designs that use MUJI’s ageing and defective items in fashionable collections, jewellery accessories, lights, art installation, etc in a Zen garden.
Inspired by the comma, a mark symbolising a slight pause in the fast-paced lifestyle and representing MUJI’s appreciation of the eco-conscious practice of prolonging the shelf life of products via creative repurposing.
A RE-inspiring sustainable exhibition, and a successful collaboration by Design!

Shepard Fairey: Evolution – The Future is Unwritten

Shepard Fairey: Evolution – The Future is Unwritten
Raffles x Shepard Fairey x Ion Orchard

‘Evolution’ is a stunning showcase of original creations by our very OWN RAFFLES DESIGNERS, ignited by the brilliance of Shepard Fairey‘s artistry and messages.

Immerse yourself in the boundless imagination of our talented Raffles Designers from the Visual Communication Design programme as they bring art to life in 3D! Our Raffles Designers, through the inspiration of Shepard Fairey’s art, developed multiple design pieces that transcend the paintings, giving a three dimensional interpretation of the pieces, breathing in new life and new meanings to the complex artwork – a feat to admire!

This immersive experience will transport you on a thrilling journey, complete with dazzling graphic and fashion exhibits painstakingly designed by Raffles Graphic, Fashion, and Interior Designers!

“The extended exhibition titled Evolution: The Future is Unwritten, happening from 15 September to 2 October, in collaboration with ION Orchard and Raffles College of Higher Education.

Running alongside Shepard Fairey’s first solo exhibition at Opera Gallery, Evolution: The Future is Unwritten is an extended exhibition happening from 15 September to 2 October. With generous support from ION Orchard and design and curation by the talented students of Raffles College of Higher Education, Evolution will use Shepard Fairey’s art as inspiration to explore the connections between street art and the world around us. This immersive, dynamic exhibition will feature exclusive behind-the-scene footages of Fairey, inviting viewers to take a peek into the life and inner workings of this world-renowned artist. Aside from providing insight into the artist’s practices, the showcase will also feature the reinterpretations of his work through installations and a fashion showcase created by the students of Raffles College of Higher Education, using Fairey’s works as inspiration to create a zero-waste fashion collection.” – ION Orchard
