Overview

The National Design Centre (NDC) is the nexus for all things design. This is where designers and businesses congregate to exchange ideas, conduct business, use its facilities and obtain assistance from the national agency for design, the DesignSingapore Council. Centrally located in the arts, cultural, learning and entertainment district in the Bras Basah-Bugis area, it is well placed to invite the public to learn about design through its exhibitions and programmes.

I have been here on a number of occasions over the past few years. Whilst I enjoy the exhibits- I'm a little disappointed with the lack of new items. The café and retail section is cool.

Dropped by this place again this week for a look at the exhibition on fifty years of design in Singapore. Some quite interesting displays. Not very busy at lunchtime on a weekday.

We had some expectation because its Singapore Design Week. However, this centre is really nth special. The layouts and products are not attractive too. We wait so long for the coffee at Kapok........ and it tastes below average.

Visited the National Design Centre where the Nightscape 2050 Exhibition is taking place from 24 Oct to 21 Nov. We found the review of Singapore's Nightscape (from 1800 to 2050) worthy of a closer look. The display gave us a very good understanding of how...More

Loads of local designer stuff and cool knick knacks that isn't easily available in other shops in Singapore. Things there are a little pricier, but definitely worth a visit for the uniqueness of the products.

Not much to see here, probably it is still new and not enough products to sale, I'm quite disappointed. Keep walking, not yet a place worth stopping by.
