Each year the Toronto design community throws events all over Toronto; from openings to product launches it’s a glittering week that leaves you needing to take a deep breath and reflect upon what you saw.
I have compiled some of my favourite events and designers which I hope you all will be inspired by.
The Interior Design Show (IDS).
An enormous venue, there is just so much to see.
From regional designers in Studio North, to international brands like Caesarstone with sprawling booths containing collaborations demonstrating the absolute latest in surface technology.
You’ll walk out of here with extreme home envy, wanting to redecorate everything!
Come Up To My Room at The Gladstone Hotel
This art-design show is so unique. Rooms are assigned and curated by local and regional design collectives, artists and firms in ahead-of-the-mass-aesthetics and immersive experiences.
Like this assault on the senses, 8-bit interactive space by ROLLOUT.
I adored the ethereal ‘Hanging Matters’. At given times, show attendees were invited to pull on the cones, revealing the surprises inside.
There was nothing quite as creepy and intriguingly beautiful than Shannon Scanlan’s ‘Gut Feelings’ room.
It felt like you were entering a living (hot pink) entity of grotesque mystery.
A playground for the un-squeamish.
These two events were just the tip of the wonderful iceberg that was Toronto Design Week 2014.
I can not even wait for next year.
