Description

Outside the Box – Ottawa
City in the Woods

Ottawa is a city surrounded by the woods. We deal with extremes such as weather (how do we deal with temps that range from -30 degrees to +30 degrees?) and geography (how efficiently can we make the leap from our cubicles to the deep woods via bike paths and roadways?). We respond to the extremes with multiples. We use multi-purpose items to multi-task because we have learned to become multi-faceted.

Shipped across the country in Bankers boxes, the Toronto Design Offsite Festival & WantedDesign unpack, install, and present nine distinct national and international showcases in the third edition of ‘Outside the Box.’ Working with local correspondents, the contents of each box includes original works from local designers, reflecting the particular resources and makers of each area, and featuring responses to the theme “multiple.”
