Countdown to Toronto Design Week - Jan 23-29

by Tiffany Dressler in , ,


Has it really been a year since IDS11? Seems so as the Brothers Dressler woodshop is abuzz with preparation for Toronto Design Week 2012. We'll have an exhibit as part of Studio North's 10th anniversary at the Interior Design Show. It will be a chance to see a brand new dining table based on our Cross III design coupled with a set of re-imagined Mart Stam chairs, an addition to our orphanage series.  Hanging over the table is a one-off chandelier incorporating reclaimed chair elements supported by an arc and we'll be introducing Peg and the Branches Sconce. The lion's share of the material used in these pieces came from a lofty elm taken down in Toronto's west end.

We'll also be speaking as part of a 10x10 talk where veteran Studio North participants are invited to talk about our inspiration Friday January 27 at 5pm.

Toronto Design Week is packed with excellent opportunities to delight your eyes and stimulate your minds. Be sure to get out and support local and international design in our city next week.
