Spotted! Kimming Yap

Held at the Old Truman Brewery in East London during the London Design Festival, Tent is always a good place to find exciting and innovative ideas. At this year’s show, design collective Creativeans displayed their projects centralized around the theme Treasures of the Little Red Dot. Four designers give their own interpretation of Singaporean design, and develop products inspired by Singapore’s culture and its immediate realities.

Starting today and running for the following three post, we highlight each designer showcasing their project alongside a brief bio.

First up is Kimming Yap who  currently oversees Creativeans from his Milan office.  Kimming graduated in Industrial Design from Nanyang Polytechnic and later received his Master Degree in Design from Domus Academy in Milan. He has worked with design studios in Singapore, Hong Kong, and with Setsu & Shinobu Ito in Italy. Kimming received numerous design awards and his work has been published and exhibited on international platforms such as the Salone del Mobile and Triennale Design Museum.

Jiak is a sauce dish and holder that takes its inspiration from local culture where spices and sauces are adorned and treasured. Jiak keeps these treasures safe and accessible, while serving as a chopsticks and spoon holder.
