designboom mart toronto 2017.
designboom brings back its international design market for IDS17, offering 30 creative professionals from all over the world the opportunity to introduce their new products to the canadian market.
designboom mart is a unique interactive platform for emerging and established designers to test their new ideas. Visitors can purchase the self-produced or limited edition pieces direclty from the designers.
designboom mart at IDS17 explores interaction through connecting, stretching and contracting space to create an ideal environment that engages the vendors and products. Intersecting rectilinear volumes, painted designboom yellow, stretch vertically to define the nucleus of the mart and act as a beacon, welcoming and drawing visitors in. A continuous baltic birch table contracts and expands around the volume, creating a plane of interaction between vendors and visitors. The undulating circulation encourages visitors to circumambulate through the mart by generating new vistas, a sense of discovery and opportunities for connection.
