About Singapore Furniture Industries Council
The Singapore Furniture Industries Council (SFIC) was established in 1981 as the official representative body of Singapore’s furniture industry. It currently represents 95% of furniture manufacturers in Singapore, 65% of whom have subsidiary manufacturing plants in the region, including China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam.

Its primary roles include promoting the interest of its members and the Singapore furniture industry, facilitating members’ exposure to the world market, creating more entrepreneurs through human resource development, developing local talents, creating more leading-edge and award winning designs by organising competitions such as the annual Furniture Design Award, forging strategic partnerships with government and trade-related agencies, harnessing technology and knowledge for growth through the use of information technology.

SFIC, the parent company of International Furniture Fair Singapore Pte Ltd, is the organiser of the annual International Furniture Fair Singapore and ASEAN Furniture Show. SFIC also manages the International Furniture Centre at Sungei Kadut and represents Singapore in the ASEAN Furniture Industries Council (AFIC).

About Furniture Design DNA
With the aim to raise design capability, nurture design talents and accelerate business growth through various design adoption, the SFIC introduces the Furniture Design DNA (Develop, Nurture and Accelerate). Supported by SPRING Singapore, the programme will be implemented over the next three years to assist the furniture industry in fully leveraging design as a key competitive advantage and driver for future growth.

The Furniture Design DNA is spearheaded by the SFIC’s dedicated Design Development Division and is targeted at local furniture companies, designers and students and will focus on four main areas - design seminars, overseas design missions, an interactive e-platform for design promotion and outreach, and a capabilities-profiling of the furniture industry.
