5 highlights from IDS Vancouvers upcoming virtual and live shows.
Like the rest of the planet, annual design show IDS Vancouver won't be doing things the usual way in 2020. Instead of a trade floor, this year's show is a week of online and offline events in intimate spots around the city (and around the worldexpect seminars from London, San Francisco and more). We've selected a few of our favourites from the week, which runs October 1 to 8, 2020.
This is a virtual deep dive into some of our favourite designers and brandsincluding ANDlight from past Designer of the Year Lukas Peet, and Edmonton's Birch and Grey (which was a part of our 2018 IDS feature Alberta REdeFINED). Look for studio tours, new product launches, behind-the-scenes videos and more.
The Halifax- and Toronto-based architect's work has gained an international following, for good reasonhis modernist structures build on traditional forms, manipulated to open up views and follow paths to the sun. Theyre also just downright beautiful. (Take a deep dive into his Rabbit Snare Gorge cabin in the Cape Breton Highlands for a little inspiration.) Gandhi will be speaking at Inform Interiorsboth live and live-streamedand, along with artist Nathalee Paolinelli, will transform the building's window in a collaborative installation inspired by the theme of one of Gandhi's courses at the Yale School of Architecture (titled Where the Wild Things Are).
U.K.-based designer and maker Natasha Hussein zooms in from London to discuss how an understanding of natural systemshow birds have colour without pigment, how trees communicatecan translate into built-world systems for designing objects that feel alive and transform our quality of life.
You'll book a time slot for this one: designers Laura Melling of LM Studio (left) and Alyssa Lewis of Studio Block (right) will create an offsite installation experience theyre titling Wonderment. Exploring the connection between self and nature (with a regional design palette), the install will have two experiences: the garden and the forest.
we're holding our awards virtually this year, with our designers sharing highlights from their winning projects during the event. It's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to interact with these designersjoin us October 8!
