Description

An invitation to the Brothers Dressler studio for insight into their work and their small-scale manufacturing in Toronto. Operating since 2003, the studio’s design and manufacturing practice revolves around wood, and its creative uses and reuses. Current production includes small batch and built-to-order pieces from the catalogue, large and small scale custom work for clients, as well as limited editions, speculative experiments and prototypes. The Brothers Dressler’s work creates a waste stream that is collected and redirected toward new works. These pieces include cut-ups line, as well as large scale projects where these off-cuts are adapted into the design. The Brothers Dressler’s are collectors of our industrial history, finding unique relics and discards and seeing their potential for repurpose or reuse.

See the process in all its forms at their open workshop. Watch work demonstrations including steam bending, joinery, and CNC milling. New works are on display along with catalogue, limited editions, and work spanning a 13-year history. Located in the vibrant Sterling Road arts and manufacturing community in the lower Junction Triangle.
