The Journey To Studio North Starts Here.
It’s official! I have been selected as an exhibitor at Canada’s Interior Design Show (IDS) in January of 2014!
Located in the heart of Toronto IDS has attracted over 660,000 design professionals, design-savvy consumers and media since 1999. IDS has served as a design industry hub providing a unique and unrivalled business opportunity for thousands of design-driven businesses.
This is year's show is going to be bigger and better than the last and I’m beyond excited to be a part of it. For the past 3 years I have traveled regularly to the design show and have always been inspired and driven by the exceptional keynote speakers and independent designers looking to make new chapters in the design industry.
I will be exhibiting in a portion of the show for independent designers called Studio North. Studio North is described by IDS as a ‘show within a show’originally introduced to support Canada’s vibrant and independent design scene. Studio North features ateliers and design-makers from coast to coast. The showcase features 60 Canadian and international designers exhibiting one-off and custom collections of furniture, lighting, glass, ceramics, textiles and surface design in a gallery-like installation. Studio North has evolved into one of the most anticipated annual exhibits of design for design industry, media and a discerning design audience.
Over the next 3 months I will be documenting my journey and progress with the production of my industrial design piece for the show. What am I exhibiting? Well the surprise is right around the corner! Check back to see the entire story unfold.
