Says event organizer Laurence Gelinas, “There is a multitude of interesting things happening on our design scene and I felt it wasn’t adequately represented… [Studio Editions’] success proved that the need and the desire to discover them are there. We are excited and intend to use the Studio platform to grow a large network, not only via our annual event, but also through other new initiatives, to give a truly international window to the designers.”
