Things to See at the IDS2018 Show

CAESARSTONE X SNARKITECTURE:

Caesarstone’s project with New York-based collaborative practice Snarkitecture for their 2018 Designer Program will focus on the icon of the modern home: the kitchen island. The collaboration will present a realistic and practical interpretation of Caesarstone, one that looks at the functionality of the kitchen, while drawing from Snarkitecture’s signature blend of architecture and art. IDS18 attendees will get a preview of the first instalment of the collaboration before a large-scale version debuts at Milan Design Week later this year.


DESIGNBOOM MART:

designboom brings back its international design market, offering 30 creative professionals from all over the world introducing their new products to the Canadian market. A unique interactive platform or emerging and established designers to test their new ideas, visitors can purchase the self-produced or limited edition pieces directly from the designers. Expect to be drawn in by the innovative design of the booth, painted in designboom yellow.


THE FUTURE OF CANADIAN LIVING – TREEHOUSE

Multiple-time Interior Design Show Best Booth winner, AyA Kitchens and Baths, has confirmed that it will join forces with U31 Design and Cleaf by Weston Premium Woods for The Future of Canadian Living. Inspired by the culturally diverse makeup of Toronto, The Future of Canadian Living will feature a series of pod-like spaces to resemble a 15-foot high treehouse. Through the intersection of texture, height and space, each pod will represent archetypal characters of traditional rooms – a kitchen, a bathroom and a library.


MIELE’S DIALOG OVEN REVOLUTIONIZES THE FUTURE KITCHEN

Miele presents an absolute world’s first: The Dialog oven with innovative M Chef Technology revolutionizes the art of cooking. Miele household appliances have always stood for the very best: premium quality, outstanding durability – made for those who love to be on the leading edge. Discover a pioneering cooking appliance with revolutionary technology that sets new standards in culinary excellence through in-person product demos.


HOW BRIGHT IS OUR FUTURE?:

Visitors will encounter a dark forest of blade-like fixtures at this thought-provoking exhibit that asks them to react to the most promising and terrifying changes that will form part of our future. Through touch-technology, the exhibit will measure an emotional response to the changes that will define our future, and share it through a visual experience within the installation.


SARAH RICHARDSON X MONOGRAM:

You don’t have to travel to Italy to experience gourmet pizza, you can enjoy it at home with Monogram Canada. Celebrity designer, Sarah Richardson, is creating two custom gourmet kitchens with the luxury appliance brand, including one inspired by a couture pizzeria featuring the Monogram Pizza Oven at this year’s show. Exclusive to the brand, the Monogram pizza oven is designed to match the capabilities of the best restaurant pizza ovens, giving homeowners restaurant-quality performance in their own kitchens. Drop by the booth to see the new oven in person and enjoy delicious pizza samples (select times).


MAKER:

Maker returns for its fourth instalment at IDS18, curated by designmilk. Maker features the work of artisanal North American design stars who produce their own work in small batches with limited distribution. This year’s Makers include 1925Workbench, Atelier Bussiere, Charuk & Ford, Christopher Solar Designs, Kastella, Kroft, Luxi Studioworks, Miles & May, Objects and Ideas, and PELLE.


STUDIO NORTH & PROTOTYPE:

Studio North and Prototype is the marketplace to showcase custom work and limited-edition collections to the design industry, media and a discerning design audience. Over 65 Canadian and international designers of the highest calibre present one-off and custom collections of furniture, lighting, glass, ceramics, textiles and surface design in a gallery-like setting. Studio North and Prototype participants are provided with the opportunity to have their work reviewed by a panel of international industry leaders and design experts.


THE CLOVER PAVILION BY ONTARIO WOOD:

The IDS18 ON Wood Display is the next step in an ongoing applied research into light-weight, hybrid spatial structures inspired by natural and biological systems. The Clover Pavilion is a grouping of partially enclosed floral display areas that feature tension-activated plywood petals. The project seeks to infuse wood design, one of Ontario’s enduring craft traditions, with experimental ideas and techniques from engineering and material systems theory. Technology and craft are developed together to produce a rich sequence of spaces that are responsive to visitors and highlight the varied Ontario Wood prototypes and artifacts on display.


CANADIAN BY NATURE: THE BEST IN NEW ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN

Coinciding with the 20th anniversary of IDS, this exhibition brings together some of the most talented designers and studios, whether practicing in Canada or abroad that represent the best of Canadian design today. Curated by Paul Makovsky, Vice President of Design of Metropolis magazine, the exhibition showcases the work of over 50 architecture and design studios–both emerging and established–to explore how considerations of sustainability, conscientious uses of materials and design philosophies can create projects and products that truly stand out, in terms of both their aesthetics and design.

IDS Celebrates 20th Anniversary with Star-Studded Speaker Line-up

Interior Design Show welcomes Michael Ford, Kathryn M. Ireland, Karim Rashid and Brian Gluckstein to 2018 event

Back to celebrate 20 years of success is North America’s most esteemed design fair, Interior Design Show (IDS), which will be taking over Toronto’s Metro Toronto Convention Centre from January 18-21, 2018. This year’s show will welcome returning favourites and new visionaries to the Caesarstone Stage during its three-day run, based around the concept of Future Forward design thinking.

IDS18 is thrilled to announce first-time conference speakers, the hip-hop architect, Michael Ford (United States) and renowned textile designer, Kathryn M. Ireland (United States) as the initial round of confirmed talent coming to Toronto. To pay homage to the event’s 20th anniversary, designers from IDS’ 1997 debut, Karim Rashid (Canada) and Brian Gluckstein (Canada), will join the lineup to share their design journeys.

MICHAEL FORD

Wisconsin-based designer, Michael Ford, has devoted his practice to blurring the lines between professional practice and academia. His work is an exploration of the cultural and sociological implications of architecture and urban planning, which was initially sparked by his graduate thesis “Hip Hop Inspired Architecture and Design” from the University of Detroit Mercy.

Combined with years of research, Michael has become one of America’s most sought-after lecturers, having given impressive presentations as the keynote at the 2017 American Institute of Architects National Conference on Architecture, and several appearances at various educational institutions. His most recent project, The Universal Hip Hop Museum, will see Michael’s programming and concept development come to life after a series of nationwide community design charrettes with prominent hip hop artists.

Michael Ford is the first speaker confirmed to take the stage on Trade Talk Friday.


KATHRYN M. IRELAND

The former actress, clothing designer and filmmaker, England-native, Kathryn M. Ireland also boasts the title of world-renowned interior and textile designer. Her lack of orthodoxy and love of colour come together to create a signature style known for being both comfortable and bohemian. As one of House Beautiful’s Top 100 Designers and as a member of ELLE Decor’s A-list Designers list, it’s no surprise that Kathryn counts Steve Martin, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and David Mamet among her celebrity and tastemaker clientele.

Kathryn M. Ireland, the actress turned interior and textile designer, will take to the stage on January 20, 2018, to share her expertise and experience with the Globe Style Saturday crowd.
