Okamura Singapore Showroom Opens Its Door

With a 7-metre giant vending machine for CHAIR and a Gachapon machine!

Since its founding in 1945, Okamura has provided high-quality products and services for offices, education, healthcare, R&D, commercial facilities and distribution centers under the motto “Quality pays for itself.” Hence it is no wonder the Japanese brand bagged not one but four Red Dot Design Awards in 2020, fittingly to mark its 75-year anniversary in glorious fashion.

In this same year, Okamura opens its flagship showroom in Singapore. The 4,800 square feet dual level space at 137 Cecil Street goes beyond its size constraint to take on multiple functions. More than just a showcase of their primo products, the repository pod welcomes anyone to rest, work and experience. In a bid to break away from the brand’s conservative mould, the Okamura Singapore team has taken an unexampled approach to yield human interplays and innovations through bold installations and interactive spaces. As mentioned by Shawn Eng, Regional Business Development Director APAC at Okamura, “It is important for individuals to innovate collaboration in today’s digital world where a lack of human interaction is evident.”

Greeting every walk-in patron across the entrance of the showroom, is a gigantic 7-metre vending machine housing award-winning Okamura products. This concept is an ingenious take to optimise the space vertically thereby allowing patrons to have access to the products in an interactive manner. With Japan being the undisputed home of vending machines, this state-of-the-art automat breathes the very essence of Japanese culture in the showroom.
