Five emerging Canadian designers from IDS and Toronto Design Offsite

February 3, 2017

We’ve chosen five young Canada-based designers and studios to watch, after seeing their work that includes a wooden ping-pong table and furniture made from mushroom mycelium at design events in Toronto.

The Canadian commerce capital’s annual celebration of design comprises two coinciding events. This year, the IDS Toronto trade fair took place at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre from 18 to 21 January, and the citywide Toronto Design Offsite festival ran from 16 to 22 January.

Both aim to foster new talent from across the country and North America. Here are our picks of the bunch.
