Sustainability, mindfulness, a return to nature. These are the words that kept coming up as we put together this issue, not only when we debated what to include in our annual Trends package, but from others we interviewed like designer Kara Mann (see story on page 22), who’s currently working on Virgil Abloh’s home in Chicago. When asked what the key influence on design would be in 2020, she said, “Sustainability. The climate crisis is changing consumer habits and, as a designer, I’m always looking for eco-friendly alternatives.” In reviewing what’s to come in the year ahead, we noticed that Kartell, a company long known for its array of vividly coloured plastic accessories and chairs, is turning to materials like ash as part of its “Kartell loves the planet” project, aimed…

This month, readers asked us about subscriber issues that sometimes arrive wrapped in plastic…. As our concerns over climate change increase, many of us are looking for eco-friendly and sustainable products and services. I’m baffled as to why my subscription issues are still arriving encased in plastic. Can you not find more sustainable packaging? — JENNIFER DE VRIES, Ingersoll, Ont. It’s ironic that my last issue appeared encased in plastic in order to include a letter promoting gift subscriptions; this move makes me consider cancelling my own subscription. Please reconsider your frequent use of bundling in plastic. — KATHERINE SMUK, Vancouver We try to minimize our use of plastic polybags wherever possible. When we do need to protect your subscriber copy from weather or to carry catalogues, we use recycled plastic. Emma has been a breath…

PROFILE LOÏC BARD WHO: Loïc Bard, designer and woodworker WHERE: Montreal CONNECT: loicbard.com, @loicbard THE SCOOP: Loïc’s sensual Bone collection, comprising hand-sculpted stools, benches, chairs and tables, was inspired by emotions, memories and the human body. Minimalist yet provocative, each piece has a soft, smooth finish. “You really discover the object by touch, a bit like the way you explore a human form,” says Loïc. EBONY AND IVORY: The collection comes in two colours. Using an ancient Japanese technique that torches the surface of the maple — Loïc’s wood of choice — he creates a dark hue that looks more natural than a stain. Alternately, he treats the wood to generate a pink undertone. “Like very pale skin,” he says. BEYOND BONE: Loïc recently partnered with Montreal artist Monique Ste-Marie to create…
