reDesign 2012 Event Preview
Have you ever wondered how the home of your favourite designer is decorated? You may not be invited over for dinner anytime soon, but you can get a glimpse of their personal style at reDesign 2012.
The Textile Museum of Canada’s signature fundraising event and gala challenges fourty leading Canadian designers, artists and architects to put their own twist on identical Eames-style chairs. Provided by MORBA, the chairs will be sold at this year’s silent auction.
I love Jeremy Laing‘s black velvet version.
Stephanie Fortin of Coeur De Lion Textiles re-imagined the Eames chair with a vibrant blue digital print.
Hariri Pontarini Architects used raw wood for a sculptural, organic look.
Come join other design enthusiasts at the event next Wednesday, November 7, at the Shops of Hazelton Lanes in Yorkville. The evening will celebrate Canadian creativity and ingenuity in a fun, party atmosphere. Tickets are $100 and include gourmet food catered by Michael Tong, premium wine and beer, and the opportunity to bid on one of the original designs. All proceeds support TMC’s programs and collections.
