About Us

Ship Of Time is an oasis tucked away in the hustle and bustle of city life, a home away from home, a third space to gather a sense of self. ⁠At Ship Of Time, everyday feels like Sunday. It is a space carved out to showcase beautiful goods, obscure designers and their compelling back stories. Each one of them, standing tall on their own. ⁠  

We invite you to drift away inside our hidden enclave. Abandon yourself, and breeze through a selection of timeless, slow-made and thoughtful goods.⁠

 Officially opened on 21 Oct 2019, Ship of Time Lifestyle Store is right next to our first brick and mortar, Essential Extra Gift Store, at the heart of busy CBD at Shenton Way. in Singapore.

Ship Of Time was set up for this reason. Both shops are experiments and iterations. Good design remains the underlying current. Except, the former is about speed, the latter about slow living.

Nothing is set in stone. And we treat both shops with this same mindset, moving and changing as the retail climate changes, spearheading a different kind of retail experience.

No one needs more, we need good editing. Bite-sized. Streamlined. Curated
