Where should we be? Toronto International Design Festival
January 24, 2012
Are we ready to stack up some air miles? Our previous two design shows have been Europe based, just a short train journey or flight away (hey you could have even spent 2 days in Cologne then jumped on a train down to Paris! How fantastic would that have been?! Daydreaming aside we are now off to the very icy Toronto for one of North America’s largest international design festivals. Starting on the 24th of January (today!) and going on till the 30th there is a whole host of events across the city.
I love there description of the festival “Expand your mind and delve into things design-related at the Toronto International Design Festival produced by the Interior Design Show and presented by Rado and Audi. From January 24th to 30th, venues around the city will host contemporary design events celebrating local and international design. This inspiring festival will feature lively debates and discussions, exhibits, symposiums and fairs.”
My favourite is definitely The Gladstone Hotel’s Annual Alternative Design Event – it sounds fantastic sounds fantastic! It is comprised of room installations and public space projects that literally take over the Gladstone Gallery and other public spaces of the hotel, I just love the inventive use of space.
