Event description

Description

‘Work/Life’ is an exhibition that explores fresh and original housewares and working products for contemporary life, showcasing the work of nine Canadian designers and studios, including Allstudio, Andrew Ferrier, Rachelle Bugeaud, Dear Human, Claire Hamilton Studio, Half-day, mpgmb, Sisley Leung, and Studio Knowhow.

Half of the world’s population now lives in urban centres where real estate is expensive and space is hard to come by. In Toronto alone, average condo sizes have shrunk by over 100 square feet over the last ten years. This has resulted in a trend towards making small spaces more livable and efficient. At the same time, the nature of work has changed drastically. We no longer work 9-5 in standard office spaces. For the knowledge industry, co-working spaces and home offices have proliferated. The boundaries between work, home, and “life” are hard to define.

‘Work/Life’ is a signature exhibition organized by DesignTO in partnership with Umbra, and supported by the Government of Ontario. A jury will recognize best-in-show with a Best Product award, and a cash prize. Visitors to the exhibition will be able to cast their vote to award Fan Favourite.
