Description

‘Outside the Box’ builds a map of design in North America.

This third annual travelling exhibition features the work of over 70 designers from 11 cities across Canada and the U.S. Curated by local correspondents, each Bankers box houses a collection of thoughtfully designed objects, reflecting the particular resources and makers of that area.

Edmonton

This is a small sampling of the most unique secret finds from the forested city of Edmonton. A city of self-made creators, hidden away from the world in the frozen north, our craft is selfish. We make things for us first. Once our craft has passed the litmus test of our peers, we send it out into the world to be discovered.
