Motherbrand designers Todd Falkowsky and Michael Erdmann with graphic designer Bill Acheson have launched the Canadian Design Resource. In the same vein as CABIN, only with a new spin, the designs featured are the found remnants of Canada's most rapidly declining resource; local design. To serve as the seed for CDR, the objects were put into context at the annual Gladstone Hotel "Come up To My Room" exhibit in Toronto. As one of the contributors of this fabulous resource, I am very excited to see great design objects being recognized including: The Solair Chair, Thermos, Ceramics, Windsor salt, The Wacky Carpet, Len Thompson Fishing Lures, and more. Just another reminder that Mother really does love us!
