Singapore: Ahead of the Trend

I stand corrected, Singapore.  A couple of months ago, I pointed out that most design trends appeared to be universal based on a Singapore design magazine I picked up on a recent vacation.  Well most of them, that is, except for plywood.

But according to Lonny, plywood really is bringing sexy back (see here), as a nod to the old classics, like Eames and Saarinen.  Lonny's jumping off point for the reference is MOMA's current exhibition on plywood.  I'm sure those names will be popping up quite a few times too at Modernism Week in Palm Springs, which I am very excited to be attending this month.
