K+, Where Art Meets Retail Meets Community
Set up by Kinetic Singapore, the new K+ multi-concept shop at Scotts Square aims to bring together artists who peddle the extraordinary, things that tickle the imagination, and brands that stand out from the bland.

Since it launched in January 2015, K+ has held over 18 shows and worked with 32 collaborators from Singapore and around the world. The brand has now taken the next leap forward, relaunching as a new 4,000-square-foot multi-concept Gallery, Retail and Community space at Scotts Square.
The new K+ curatorial space is nearly three times the size of its original premises in the same mall, offering an even larger platform for under-the-radar or new artists, designers and brands to showcase their work. While K+ will showcase international and regional works, special attention will be given to local creators, in support of the Singaporean design scene.
Nathan Yong’s new work under Nathan Yong Design and Grafunkt are the first to be shown at the Gallery (till 14 August), and will be retailed exclusively at K+ following the show, until February 2017.
At the K+ Retail space, BooksActually, GoodStuph, Kinetic, Pomelo, Supermama and Tofu Design will curate a range of lifestyle products, literature and furniture, while smaller retailers and creators will have the opportunity to showcase their wares at K+’s window bay ‘pop-up booths’.
K+ Community will serve as a communal space where practitioners, students and anyone interested in art and design can freely mingle and interact. Special bazaars will also be held regularly in this space, bringing together independent artisans from around the region, and providing a platform for hobbyists and amateur creators to showcase and sell their work.
K+ is located at Scotts Square #03-11.
