N*thing is Possible by Potato Head and OMAByJenevieve Kok
From 16 September - 25 December 2022, Desa Potato Head and OMA will be presenting their collaborative exhibition, 'N*thing is Possible', at the National Design Centre as part of Singapore Design Week!
In a collaborative curation, Potato Head and OMA are teaming up with an array of internationally esteemed design and creative talents to reflect a journey to zero waste. This exhibition demonstrates everything that they've learnt, the mistakes made, the solutions discovered, and the resources used to get there. By sharing their blueprint, they want to inspire and create awareness in people and in the industry; what matters is not the final goal, but a commitment to doing better.
New materials will be unveiled, which have been created out of waste to provide new possibilities in the future of architecture and design. Potato Head and OMA have already shown that sustainability can be beautiful, but they want to demonstrate that the opportunities to do good are ever-evolving. The international designers featured in this exhibition are Andra Martin, Andreu Carulla, BYO Living, Dom Hammond, Eco Mantra, Futura, Kengo Kuma, Max Lamb, Toogood, and Thibaut Grevet.
OMA is an international practice operating within the traditional boundaries of architecture and urbanism. AMO, a research and design studio, applies architectural thinking to domains beyond. OMA is led by eight partners – Rem Koolhaas, Reinier de Graaf, Ellen van Loon, Shohei Shigematsu, Iyad Alsaka, Chris van Duijn, Jason Long, and Managing Partner-Architect David Gianotten – and maintains offices in Rotterdam, New York, Hong Kong, Doha, and Australia. OMA’s completed projects include Taipei Performing Arts Centre (2022), Norra Tornen in Stockholm (2020), Axel Springer Campus in Berlin (2020), Galleria in Gwanggyo (2020), nhow RAI Hotel in Amsterdam (2020), and Potato Head Studios in Bali (2020). Earlier buildings include Fondazione Prada in Milan (2018), CCTV Headquarters in Beijing (2012), Casa da Música in Porto (2005), and the Seattle Central Library (2004). The renovation of Kaufhaus des Westens (KaDeWe) in Berlin, The Factory in Manchester, Hangzhou Prism, and the Simone Veil Bridge in Bordeaux are currently under construction.
About Potato Head
Desa Potato Head is a creative village by the ocean where music, art, design, food and wellness play together. The property, set on the sand and surf of Petitenget Beach, Seminyak, Bali, is made-up of Potato Head Beach Club and a hotel, composed of 226 guestrooms. More than a place to visit or stay, the Desa is intended to inspire creativity, balance and progress for the future. So, sustainability, wellness and community connection are among our key pillars. We run educational workshops and help give new life to waste in our Sweet Potato Lab, elevate the Indonesian creative scene through our music, art and cultural programs and help our community access nourishing, naturally produced food through our recently founded farming initiative, Sweet Potato Project. We believe every one of our steps should lead to something positive, so our ethos is simple: Good Times, Do Good.
