Design week is coming up, so it's time to once again emerge from our studios like Wiarton Willie and try to be more social. We are participating in three shows this year, and we're excited to show some new work:

“LIKE, YOU KNOW, WHATEVER.”

Informal, likely or probably, similar to a degree … more or less. Any or any one of a number of things, whether specifically known or not in any amount, to any extent, no matter what. Being what or who it may be as if one, anyone. People in general. Corresponding or agreeing in some noticeable respect to understand. To be able to distinguish, as one from another, to be cognizant or aware of. Like, whatever.

Fugitive Glue opens its studio doors to a design showcase. See pieces by FG as well as our friends and collaborators. You know, a collection of current work, past work and works in progress.

IIDEX Woodshop

Ontario Wood, the City of Toronto and IIDEXCanada have teamed up again to bring you IIDEX Woodshop: 14 innovative wood prototypes that utilize Toronto’s untapped ash wood resource. Globalization and climate change have brought pests like the Emerald Ash Borer to North America where they are destroying forests. In Toronto alone, the Borer will bring down 200,000+ ash trees in the next 5 years. IIDEX Woodshop aims to reduce the number of ash trees headed for the landfill by creating innovative, market-ready commercial and consumer prototypes. This IIDEXCanada annual special feature exhibition is generously supported by Ontario Wood, Ministry of Natural Resources.

DATES: Mon , Jan 18, 2016 — Sun , Jan 24, 2016
