Homes are built as a sanctuary, while offices are designed for productivity. But in these times, bedrooms, dining spaces, and even the oddest corners of the room, must now have the flexibility to be converted into functional spaces for working and learning.

The Silid collection curated by Common Room is just among the many local finds one can shop at the Go Lokal! Concept Store

Silid, DTI Go Lokal!’s new exclusive collection by Common Room, has all that in mind, with over 20 products designed by local makers, especially for small spaces.

The work-from-home (WFH) collection features water-colored ferns and patterns in calming colors, inspired by a minimalist’s design principles and maximalist’s love of texture.

“It’s an honor to be able to partner with DTI Asec. Rosvi Gaetos and DTI Go Lokal! for our fourth collection,” said Roma Agsalud, co-founder of Common Room, a collaborative space that houses over 200-plus local crafters and brands. “Our goal for Silid was to mix function for small space mobility with calm and creativity for wellness.”

Tala-arawan, a wall calendar by The Cork Project, is perfect for shared spaces and schedule coordination, and karatula door signages can help keep out distractions during your online meetings.

The Silid collection curated by Common Room is just among the many local finds one can shop at the Go Lokal! Concept Store that now has a new look.

The fresh design of the Go Lokal! Concept Store follows the minimalist sanctuary theme created by the Design Center of the Philippines (DCP). With newly installed ceiling, fences, and landscape at the DTI frontage that give the store a homey ambiance, Go Lokal aims to boost the morale of the business community and the local MSMEs by providing a venue to showcase their products minus the high costs of renting a retail outlet.
