Stefanie Hauger Art


In our modern world where social media is so powerful and time is so scarce we love to ‘play’ with words, phrases and expressions by shortening them to get to the point faster. Acronyms are the language of choice in this fast-paced, busy world and people love nothing more than to challenge and entertain each other continually with new abbreviations. It would be fair to say that Singaporeans lead the world with their great love for the acronym, it being ever-present in the media, cityscape and society.

Stefanie Hauger will be launching her exciting new art series ‘Microphrase Me!’. This body of work comes in the form of three-dimensional letters that glorify both the acronym and the ‘microphrase’, an expression coined by Stefanie. Combining her knowledge of manufacturing processes from the world of Industrial Design with her continuing quest for purity and utter simplicity in her work, she has developed a unique collection of bold and desirable works of art that seduce the onlooker through the directness of language and a delicious, uber glossy modern aesthetic. The work is hip and trendy and utterly ‘now’.

Stefanie Hauger is the owner of Singapore’s luxury lifestyle emporium Vanilla Home. She has been immersed in the world of art, design and style-making all her life and aims to bring her exquisite taste and eye for detail to the world of contemporary art. To outperform you have to find that special edge. The Podium Lounge brings together an elite crowd of international as well as local people who are looking for that edge, for whom standard solutions are not enough and we can add value.
