IIDEX Canada is Canada’s National Design + Architecture Expo and Conference presented by Interior Designer’s of Canada (IDC) and Architecture Canada (RAIC).
The Bunkie, a concept cabin which was an unofficial part of the IIDEX “Glamping” showcase fit the new international trend mash-up of “glamour” + “camping”. The adjacent Woodshop exhibit displayed a few great examples of creativity and design to go with the theme
1. Elbow Ollie Lounge Chair by Brothers Dressler reminds me of a dog sled. It is a bentwood seat built for relaxation and “reclined creativity” with detachable side table and ash wand LED light.
2. The Kona Lounger by Miles Keller is a snow-shoe shaped lounger.
The Keela Coffee Table by Paus + Grun has pseudo-campstool legs.
3. The Ubagaan Foyer Seat by The National Design Collective is an upside down tribute to the toboggan.
4. The Bunkie by Evan Bare of 608 Design, Nathan Buhler & Jorge Torres of BLDG Workshop and business developer Jim Moore.
