With a history dating back to its inception in 1887, the National Museum of Singapore is the nation's oldest museum with a progressive mind.
Known as the Little Thoughts Group, 20 local industrial designers come together to explore the relevance of heritage and culture in contemporary design.
The Little Thoughts Group invites you to take a ride back in time as objects from Singapore’s cultural past are transformed into innovative modern-day treasures, simultaneously invoking and rejecting nostalgia on the journey of creative reinvention.
