Local Glassmaker Synergraphic Design Launches Decor Collection
With a history spanning over three decades, Synergraphic Design has carved a niche as a purveyor of premium glass products. Founded by Florence Ng in 1986, the firm has proved as adept serving the decor needs of discerning homeowners as it has fashioning glass sculptures for public buildings in Asia, such as the Partners Monument at Taipei 101 in Taiwan and Brunei’s Crystal Pyramid.
Now, the studio has launched a new interior decoration and furnishings arm, Arteglas; its product range includes decorative screens, tableware and ornamental items such as candle holders, vases, mirrors and lighting fixtures.
A special Christmas collection named Yuletide Charms also makes its debut in time for the holiday season, with a selection of festive glass ornaments. Bespoke options are available to homeowners seeking unique, customised pieces. Highlights include a range of bespoke coasters featuring the sandblasting technique; it's available in different colours and can be customised to include the name of the recipient.

Every piece from Synergraphic Design is handcrafted by skilled artisans with a keen focus on craftsmanship and design, via a unique blend of techniques, according to Sara Ang, director of Synergraphic Design. “My goal is to make the beauty of glass art accessible to all living spaces,” she says. “All our products embody fine craftmanship; they are not mass-produced but intricately handmade.”

Synergraphic Design’s best-selling Lamiart patterned glass and laminated art glass finishes, launched in 1999, will also feature across several products offered by Arteglas.
Various materials such as Japanese rice paper and fabrics are sealed between two layers of glass, creating more depth and elegance, says Ang. Lamiart can also be customised with a wealth of different colours and opacities—true to the firm’s credo of displaying the limitless possibilities of glass.
