Studio for design / research / learning
57 Commonwealth Drive, #02-211, 140057

We are a two-people studio (Gideon kong and Jamie Yeo) involved in design, research, and learning as interdependent modes of practice. A large part of this involves alternative modes of production, communication, and distribution that are not immediately common—but historically and conceptually relevant—to design. Our intention is to search for critical responses towards design as a discipline and the its extended discourses by embodying design as a way of understanding and research. Since 2017, we have been involved in commissioned graphic design work, small-scale publishing, making objects/prototypes, writing and research, and teaching irregularly.

Our studio started in a very small and economic space of 3 × 3 metres in the eastern part of Singapore. The limited floor area is made efficient through self-built structures/furniture and is designed to host about 3–5 people. Our growing library includes a limited but focused selection of titles spanning across art, design, architecture, and theory. We are now (temporarily) located at central-west Singapore at a slightly larger space that accommodates the same library and other tools/machinery.

Since June 2018, we started Temporary Press, an independent press producing/publishing content surrounding a broad definition of research in art/design practice, in collaboration with a small community of practitioners, educators, and researchers.
