Pop-Up Pick: shop cool products from local talents at the Toronto Design Offsite Festival’s temporary shop
The Toronto Design Offsite Festival, the citywide celebration of Canadian design, includes tons of cool events, including this particularly great retail component: a pop-up shop stocked with whimsical household products from a trio of homegrown design companies. The temporary store sells dozens of functional-yet-artsy items, like giraffe-shaped porcelain pencil holders and pink crystal cake platters from Toronto firm Imm-Living, or pretty waterdrop trivets from Montreal-based creative studio Toma. Everything is designed in Canada, and prices range from $20 for this multi-purpose peg to $120 for a beautiful set of maple knives from Ottawa brand Warehouse. It’s a great chance to snap up cool finds from local designers—and let’s face it, everyone could use a jewellery hanger shaped like a unicorn.
