2019 marks the 25th anniversary of the rebirth of one of Germany’s most storied watchmaking companies, A. Lange & Söhne.
Long an admirer of the brand’s immaculate design and technical innovation, creative director Larry Peh was invited along with Su Jia Xian of SJX Watches to help curate a special exhibition on 25th September at ION Sky.
&Larry is proud to be part of Citi Commercial Bank’s effort to support the creative aspirations of financially disadvantaged children in its 2020 calendar edition for the Business Times Budding Artist’s Fund (BT BAF).
With a theme of ‘Diversity & Inclusion’, Creative Director Larry Peh and the &Larry team took part in guiding and inspiring 40 young artists to conceptualise and create digitally immersive artworks that celebrate our differences as peoples, cultures and individuals.
9 November 2019 marks the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, and a starting point for a visual conversation between Berlin and Singapore.
At the invitation of the German Embassy of Singapore, &Larry led the collaborative effort to create ‘To & Fro’, a short film commemorating the event. It was previewed at the Design Film Festival 2019 and the 23rd German Film Festival, and also featured on Channel News Asia. Watch the film here.
For the closing presentation at this year’s D&AD Festival in London, Larry shared his perspectives on how Singapore’s cultural sensitivities inform our design approach to helping traditional brands stay relevant for the future. We wish to express our appreciation to DesignSingapore Council, the President’s Design Award and D&AD, and also to our clients, whose works made up the heart of the presentation. And a big thank you to everyone who attended, especially those who stayed on to talk afterwards.
With effect from 1 January 2017, SMEs seeking CDG support for consultancy-related costs under their capability upgrading projects will have to engage management consultants who possess SPRING-recognised certification.

To celebrate PIN Prestige magazine’s 4th Anniversary, we have designed based on the theme "Quirky" and collaborated with Bynd Artisan, Sueki Ceramics and The 1872 Clipper Tea Co. to produce limited edition A4 folders, unique tea blend and a customised Otani mug as subscription gifts.
As part of the efforts to launch Joseph Schooling's new book “Hello, my name is Joseph Schooling”, we were invited design a poster that is now out at various MRT stations in Singapore.
For &Larry's inaugural post, we sat down with connoiseur Su Jia Xian of Watches by SJX and spoke about the history of A. Lange & Söhne's typography – what made it tick and how it particularly hits the sweet spot.
Watch this space as we debut Journal soon.
Long-time friend and collaborator Edwin Low, founder and owner of lifestyle store Supermama, first approached us a year ago in 2015 to work on a top-secret project. The idea: marrying Singapore designs with Japanese craftsmanship.
We began by assembling our very own team of ‘Avengers’ – Holycrap, Koh Hong Teng, Larry Peh, PHUNK and Theseus Chan – and named the project Vessels.
The works from all artists – together with our very own vase too – was exhibited for the first time at the inaugural Supermama Porcelain Festival at Gillman Barracks on 23 September 2016.
In late 2015, we were commissioned by long-time collaborator Clang to work on his next solo exhibition, The World Surrounding an Indoor Plant. Entirely in black and shades of grey, this series is an extension of Clang’s artistic journey and explorations into the intimate realms of memory and recollection.
More developments on this ongoing project will be announced shortly.
In October 2015, &Larry was approached to participate in the 11th edition of Here is ZINE Tokyo.
Curated by Englightenment, the bi-annual exhibition celebrates the craft of handmade zines.
As a collaborative effort with photographer Ivanho Harlim, our response was an extension of 2008's Suitable for the Young project, which questioned the efficacy of censorship in Singapore.
