The Other Side of Toronto's Design Week

Hey hey Guys,

Just as I had promised and said I'm already deviating back to the Design Show, but this time we're looking at the other side of Toronto's Design Week.

Design week in Toronto last month wasn't just about the Interior Design Show, one of our very own had attended the Come Up to My Room Exhibition that was taking place that week. Of course if you haven't already guessed felt and design have started to go hand in hand. She found an interesting piece made by the Woman King Collective. The event takes place in the Gladstone Hotel and is an annual alternative design event. So if for next year you want to walk through the beaten path definitely check out this event.

We leave you with Women King Collectives felt pieces called "Dwell" to give you a brief idea of what it meant to the designers here is a little snip it that was under the piece. For their felt birdhouse they have used Industrial Felt to create that natural heathered look.

“Dwell explores the evolution of familiar spaces as reflections of our life cycles. The home is a site where we are created, grow, transform, and inevitably break free from.”
