"Creative Reuse: Products, Practices, People" Talk Event with Reiko Sudo

Description

CREATIVE REUSE: PRODUCT, PRACTICES, PEOPLE

TEXTILE TALK EVENT

WITH REIKO SUDO

Organised in collaboration with Foreign Policy Design


In celebration of MUJI Singapore’s 15th anniversary, renowned Japanese textile designer Reiko Sudo will be presenting a special talk on textiles, design and sustainability this April.


An expert at combining traditional fabrics with cutting-edge technology, Reiko Sudo is a longtime MUJI collaborator who has advised on MUJI’s textiles and upcycling initiatives since 2008. She is also a professor at Tokyo Zokei University and the design director of Tokyo’s seminal NUNO Corporation, an independent studio dedicated to revitalising Japan’s traditional craft centres.


Join us for an afternoon spent exploring how in recent years, thinking more about textiles in relation to the environment has changed the way Reiko Sudo designs and creates textiles. Following Reiko Sudo’s talk on how waste materials have been central to her creative and educational efforts, local designers Elita Ong, Tiffany Loy and Morgan Yeo will be adding to the dialogue by discussing creative reuse in the context of their previous projects and current practices.


Through this textile talk event, MUJI hopes to inspire a creative reuse movement in Singapore, and to offer audience members exciting ideas on repurposing waste materials in thoughtful, imaginative and useful ways. See you there!
