Multi-brand furniture store Xtra has a new nest to call home, and its 8m-high, handassembled structure is beckoning shoppers in. The installation creates a dedicated space for Xtra’s main brand, Herman Miller, while the floor-to-ceiling windows flood the space with natural light. Here, design pundits will recognise Herman Miller’s Aeron and Sayl chairs, as well as the iconic George Nelson bubble lamps, which the brand recently acquired rights to produce.
The 10,000sqf retail floor also features two showflat-esque areas, named The Apartment and Studio Apartment. Each has been furnished with coffee tables, beds, and accessories that complement their sizes. The Apartment, in particular, is also fitted with motorised curtains, speakers, and a projector.
Shoppers can look forward to exciting new products, such as decorative panels by Alexander Girard, the dancing Oiphorique lamp by Parachilna, the Klara rocking chair by Moroso, as well as the limited-edition Spun chairs by Magis. There are only 10 of the fun and interactive Spun chairs, each initialled by designer Thomas Heatherwick, in Singapore.
Xtra’s regular shoppers will also see a familiar and welcome sight. Kith Cafe, the store’s former neighbour in Park Mall, has a joint space so you can now order a cuppa or meal while deciding on your purchases.
