Perfect for fun, modern homes
Bringing together a confluence of inspirations, PLAYplay is distilled from the personality of Journey East, and skilfully brought to life by internationally-accaimed design duo Lanzavecchia + Wai.
Since its launch, PLAYplay has appeared in various international design media such as Wallpaper*, Dezeen, Elle Decor, Design Milk and many more.
PLAYplay is a daring collection crafted for compact smart living spaces, fun-loving + playful people, and outspoken and expressive characters who are unafraid of colour and want to be surrounded by authentic possessions.
The spirit of play forms the driving narrative behind the collection, each piece consciously representing the young-minded positivity of a life filled with fun.
This forward-looking energy is seamlessly juxtaposed with a touch of retro design influence: a homage to the 20-year heritage of Journey East as curator and restorer of rare vintage furniture.
PLAYplay is proudly designed in Singapore + Italy, and proudly crafted in South East Asia: South East Asia boasts an overwhelming plethora of rich colours and flavours found nowhere else in the world – collected, sorted and selected to give life to each piece in the collection.
Indonesian Mahogany, an impressive wood of the region, was also chosen as a key material that binds us to our culture and collective memory. Part two of the PLAYplay collection was launched with more pieces in an Oak finish.
Lanzavecchia + Wai is a creative collaboration between Francesca Lanzavecchia and Hunn Wai. To them, being designers means being researchers, engineers, craftsmen and story-tellers all at the same time.
Lanzavecchia + Wai have collectively garnered attention and accolades in major design platforms such as the SaloneSatellite ,Fuori Salone and the Triennale Design Museum in Milan (IT), DepotBasel (CH), Interieur Kortrijk (BE), IMM in Cologne (DE), Tokyo Design Week (JP) and Beijing Design Week (CN).
