IDS 2008: Prototype
by sabine7 / February 26, 2008


One of the most interesting sections of this year’s IDS show was Prototype, a juried show of work by a mix of emerging and established Canadian designers. Prototype was part of the Studio North area that featured work already in production, but Prototype presented concepts that have not yet reached production stage. Some of the most interesting pieces included the Knuckle(er) table with utensils tray drawers and attached seating by Thompson Rittscher and the modular Stuul Side Table and Stool by Stuart Macquarrie that kept taking on different forms throughout the show. Chairs were sharp, especially the L41 Chair by Geoffrey Lilge and the Fujiyama Chair by Phil Wong, but there were softer options like the Bean Bench by Thout and the Orange Chair and Ottoman by Erin McCutcheon out of cotton jersey and foam. The Helmet Tables by Crawford Noble are made out of MKII helmets manufactured in Toronto in 1941 and the sleek Lounge Chair by DB Studio is of high-density polyurethane foam. More great prototypes after the jump.
