As ETTE TEA and I reflected on our philosophies, we discovered our common ground in the appreciation for the vernacular. From our conversations, I learnt that Pandan, a plant that is indigenous to the region around Southeast Asia, is a favoured ingredient of choice in ETTE TEA’s tea blends. Instinctively it led me to think of how else this ordinary plant can be used for the installation. For our tea house installation, we are using Pandan leaves as a key material to construct the artwork. The leaves are used in their organic forms to create a canopy. Through the use of fresh Pandan leaves we hope the space will be infused with a light pandan aroma adding a sensorial note to the installation. @singaplural event officially opens on 7th March, at the F1 pit building. See ya!! 👌🏻 #etteteaxmessymsxi #messymsxi #Singaplural

Monsteras, philodendrons and more have found their way from Instagram to silk blouses thanks to Catch’s collab with botanical artist and illustrator, Lucinda Law.
