Designed by Mr Yee Chin Hoon and The Machinist: Wendy Chua, Xin Xiaochang and Yuki Mitsuyasu
The MachinistRegular price SGD$45.00
Through the lens of design, The Machinist documents the stories of a lathe machinist and his community in the Jalan Besar district of Singapore. In their words, we learn how they come to dedicate their entire lives to mastering a skill, and question the meaning of craft in a rapidly changing urban context.
