Celebrating and promoting design in Canada and across the world, IDS brings together over 53,000 of the world’s leading products, companies and change-makers to inspire and transform the future of design.
The Interior Design Show returns to Toronto on January 19th, promising to be a powerful and immersive affair. Exhibitors at this year’s show include major vendors and big names in interior design, such as Microsoft and Benjamin Moore, amongst hundreds more. If you’re heading over to IDS this year, we recommend checking out these five unique exhibits at some point during the action-packed weekend.
Presented by the Natural Landscape Group and Land Art Design Landscape Architects Inc., The Open Air exhibit is geared at the curation of outdoor spaces, which are purposeful, strategic, and beautiful.
For all-things-home-automation, look no further than The LAB: a tech-forward exhibit showcasing a collection of gadgets and apps that have been carefully selected by the CEOs of Itsme and Danby Appliances. The LAB is designed by MIO and powered by Samsung.
Stone Age Folk
Designed by Jaime Hayon in collaboration with Caesarstone, the Stone Age Folk installation features wares made from Caesarstone engineered quartz. Guests can expect to find pieces from this unique installation throughout the show; “popping up throughout the space, alongside joyful carousels, wall panels, lights and tables.”
The Maker exhibit, curated by Design Milk, highlights the work of independent artisans in the form of limited edition, hand-crafted designs. Maker is geared at small-scale endeavors who are ready for a market transformation, via exposure through IDS.
True to its name, the Ontario Wood exhibit showcases designs created from locally-sourced wood. Post-show, the designs will be dismantled and repurposed by Habitat for Humanity.
