Mark your calendars! Expect long queues at cash deposit ATMs as the auspicious day of Li Chun falls on a Sunday, February 4th.

Traditionally, Li Chun is a significant day for Chinese people to celebrate a bountiful harvest with worships and offerings at the start of spring. As time passes, this tradition has slowly manifested into a modern-day Singaporean custom which believes that depositing money at auspicious times into bank accounts can boost wealth for the entire year.

These ‘auspicious times’ is calculated based on your Chinese Zodiac. Here is a timetable for you:

Skip the ATM queues this year and deposit your money into your own personal money box. Embellished with your personal Zodiac sign, each piece is uniquely crafted by skilled artisans only. Got 4 auspicious timings on Li Chun day? With your own money box, all also can! HUAT AH!

The early Peranakans, adopted a practice of incorporating expensive decorative ceramic tiles into the interior and exterior of their houses as a reflection of their extravagant lifestyle and status.

The decorative tiles, usually in floral motifs, would add pastel and vibrant colours into their Victorian architecture houses that reflect the East-West blend of the Straits Chinese. Under the mercy of time and modernization in Singapore, the production of these tiles in Singapore slowly diminishes along with the forgotten Peranakan Heritage, and eventually ceases in production.

This collection explores a modern twist to the classic Peranakan tiles. Now available for order.

Nanoleaf had the opportunity to hatch up a customized installation (using 159 panels, our largest installation to date!) for Spectrum Global – a technology and innovation business club. The idea behind the installation highlights the integrative human role in technology.

Using the new Nanoelaf Rhythm (an add-on module), the installation also reacts to sound and music. Click here to learn more about these cool modular light panels.

Thank you, Alvin, for your testimony! We are grateful to have the opportunity to help a family to save more.

“Dear Nanoleaf,

The bulb you donated was given to an Uzbek man in Central Asia. He’s a farmer and he, his wife, 3 children and grandson live in a simple two-room house which they built themselves.

They thank you for the gift. It will help them a lot to save on electricity.

Thanks again for your generosity.”

- Alvin from Covenant Presbyterian Church
