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.

Toronto

In a bustling hub of commerce and creativity, Toronto designers are both thoughtful and artistic in their approach. Toronto’s box includes a collection of imaginative and inspired tabletop objects representing the ingenuity found in our community. Each featured work has been designed using simple materials that are discovered in a new and contemplative way, from a dish created from bent sheet brass to a great lake cast in aluminum.
