IDSwest announces brand new launches

Vancouver, Canada

Interior Design Show West (IDSwest)

Vancouver, Canada, 2014-09-09 -

Exciting launches are in the works for the 10th anniversary of IDSwest, including two new collections by Martha Sturdy, which are being kept under wraps until the show. Also making its Canadian debut is a fresh collection of hand-knotted pieces by carpet design phenom Jan Kath. Meanwhile, kids and kids at heart will be entranced by the first Canadian appearance of Nidi Design Spaces for Children and its sleek line of modern furniture, and will delight in The Architecture Foundation of BC’s Architecture at Play, a wooden play apparatus which, following the show, will be donated to a community in Northern BC. Finally, IDSwest’s entrance feature, PLACE by Barter Design Co. highlights the inherent beauty of our region and the wealth of West Coast design talent. Guests are encouraged to experience these and the full roster of first-time exhibits on offer at the 10th anniversary of IDSwest.

NEW LAUNCHES AT IDSWEST

 

Architecture at Play

The Architecture Foundation of British Columbia (AFBC) celebrates 100 years of architecture in the province. As part of the anniversary celebrations, AFBC has launched the 100 Best Buildings contest; until September 28, BC residents can vote online for their favourite, with the winning buildings announced later in the Fall.

 

As part of the anniversary display, and through the generosity of supporters such as Green Oak Development, the AFBC has commissioned “Architecture at Play”, a red cedar play structure handcrafted by Permanent Pole’s Art Paul. Following IDSwest, the structure will be donated and permanently installed in the village of Laxgalts'ap, BC, one of many northern communities in need of play facilities for children.

 

Bertjan Pot’s Prop Light

Internationally influential designer Bertjan Pot will bring his Prop Light to IDSwest for its Canadian debut. Bertjan’s Random Light by Moooi has proven to be one of the most enduring lighting designs in recent years, and IDSwest invites design aficionados to familiarize themselves with the Prop Light, and judge for themselves if it has enough appeal to become a classic.

 

Jan Kath

In the world premiere of his new Angles collection, Jan Kath of Finlay and Kath Inc, will present never-before-seen pieces fresh off the loom, just weeks prior to the Canadian launch of his international design house in Vancouver. Finlay and Kath Inc. is one of the world’s most in-demand designers of hand-knotted carpets. Incorporating classic elements from Oriental carpets and combining them with contemporary, minimalist design, Jan’s creations break from convention. View the brand new collection at IDSwest.

 

Martha Sturdy

Martha will exhibit her signature resin and steel pieces, including furniture and fine art. Martha has chosen IDSwest as the platform for the launch of two exciting new collections! What remains to be seen is whether she will introduce more of her fabulous furniture or a new line of wearable sculpture… Visit Martha’s exhibit at IDSwest to find out.

 

PLACE by Barter Design Co.

IDSwest’s 10th anniversary entrance feature, PLACE celebrates the beauty of Canada’s West Coast. Journey through the natural and human features that define us, from towering timbers to refined objects, and experience BC’s history, the richness of our resources and the depth of our design skill.

 

The Very Hush Hush Trailer

A silver Airstream trailer will stop at IDSwest to showcase the work of independent designers from BC. Designers Tracy Fillion and Cathy Terepocki travel across Western Canada with the trailer, which has been retrofitted into a roving gallery and shop carrying a range of one-of-a-kind housewares, jewellery and accessories created by local talent.

 

Umbra Shift

A brand-new collection of housewares, Shift revisits Umbra’s roots to celebrate functional, beautiful design. Focusing on contemporary influences, Umbra Shift is a collection of thoughtfully-designed everyday items created by a roster of established and emerging designers, including this year’s winner of the RBC Emerging Designer Award, Lukas Peet. Lukas’s award-winning asymmetrical candlesticks will be on display at IDSwest.

 

Whole New Home

Clients connect with design professionals in Whole New Home, a hub for finding bright ideas to add style and value to your home. Your own personal Design Buddy will put you in touch with approved pros, and can recommend local providers to help you score you the best prices and services and get the job done right.

 

Working Lunch by Nidi

While exploring IDSwest, Working Lunch will be the ideal spot to develop ideas, discuss with friends or chat with your interior designer while enjoying a bit to eat. In Working Lunch, IDSwest will see the Canadian launch of Italian brand Nidi, Design Spaces for Children. The sleek and functional esthetic will be showcased in this feature that serves as an onsite hub for brainstorming and collaboration.
