The new cafe at the ArtScience Museum is an intriguing one that fits in nicely with its surroundings. Sitting right at the entrance of the Marina Bay museum, FabCafe Singapore offers small bites like croissants, pastries and cakes, as well as espresso-based coffees. That all sounds pretty standard, right?
But here’s the cool part — it blends art, food and technology, with laser-cut macarons and 3D printing facilities for you to experiment with. The space also hosts regular lectures, workshops and programmes for people to unleash their creative juices and learn how to make things with digital fabrication tools. After all, the ‘fab’ in its name stands for not just ‘fabulous’ but ‘fabrication’ as well.
FabCafe finds its roots in Tokyo, but has since expanded across the globe with outlets in cities like Barcelona, Bangkok and Taipei. This one’s its first in Singapore, and we’re looking forward to see what activities it comes up with in collaboration with the maker community here.
FabCafe Singapore is at ArtScience Museum, 10 Bayfront Ave. Daily 10am-7pm.
