|Space launched its first showroom in Sydney in 1993 followed by two other showrooms in Australia namely Melbourne and Brisbane.
In 2001, Space started its first Asian showroom in Singapore and quickly established an extremely high benchmark for design retailing in the luxury lifestyle contemporary furniture industry around the Asia Pacific region. Since then, Space Singapore has developed into South East Asia's largest and most progressive retailer of contemporary design. Continuing its success, Space expanded regionally and opened its fifth showroom in Kuala Lumpur in 2007.
Currently with five purpose-built showrooms, each with architect-designed interior environments that represent a large furniture collection from the top-end European brands, Space occupies a leadership position in the markets in which it operates across Australia–Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane–and in Asia–within Singapore and its latest showroom in Kuala Lumpur.
Consolidating its presence and strong commitment to the markets it operates in, Space Singapore in collaboration with Kartell Italy has opened its first Kartell Flagship Store in South East Asia in May 2008. The 1,000 square feet showroom in Singapore within the Orchard Road shopping belt located at The Centrepoint Shopping Mall showcases an extensive range of Kartell collections dedicated to all Kartell fans.
