Canadian Design a highlight at IIDEX Toronto
October 30th, 2008
Indesign Deputy Editor Penny Craswell visited Toronto for the IIDEX design fair last month. Here she reflects on the highlights of the fair.
Smaller groups such as Made: Modern Canadian Design – a retailer based in Toronto – and the Design Exchange who exhibited work as part of New Canadian Design. The student work was fun to see as small teams had 24 hours to turn rubbish into design charettes, while the keynote speakers included Danish architect, Kim Herforth Nielsen of 3XN, Trend Hunter Jeremy Gutsche and father of the Cradle to Cradle design theory Michael Braungart.
For a full report on the fair, see Indesign’s February issue #36.

And the Elwood House is the perfect example of this suburb’s popularity.
