come one, come all

Sometimes, when we close an issue, we can’t help but think, “What next?” It has been 18 years, after all, since this local magazine came to be. And after 18 years of publishing projects by GTA-only architects and designers, you’d think we’d have seen it all. It’s simply not the case. New-to-us studios pop up all the time, surprising us with their ingenuity, while stalwart firms restore our wonder again and again as they shake up the standards. This issue, our redesigned Best New Builds edition, is no exception. How could I have guessed that we’d be covering a Connecticut-style modern, straight out of the ’40s, in cookie-cutter Burlington? Yet newbie Ben Homes came calling. Nor would I have bet that Etobicoke could be home to a hyper-contemporary faceted residence –…

Alexandra Caufin What have you done for us lately? I interviewed the Toronto-born-and-raised designer Paolo Ferrari (p.57). What struck you the most as you toured his studio? His spaces and furniture feel like gateways to other worlds. I love when design has that kind of magic. His mohair sofa–chair, for instance, is a real stunner. For me, it encapsulates Ferrari’s imaginative approach: it’s a single chair that can probably seat 10 people. Arash Moallemi What have you done for us lately? I went on an enjoyable quest to photograph three beautiful and interesting homes. Were there any architectural features you hadn’t seen before? In Great Lake Studio’s home (p.76), the living room is on the third floor. A bit unusual, but once you’re there, you realize how nice it is to have the light and exposure to the treetops,…

To Aug 30 MORE DESIGN EVENTS Infinity Mirrored Room – Let’s Survive Together Ongoing After a hugely successful run last year, one dazzling Yayoi Kusama installation – a reflective selfie room with a bounty of silver orbs – will become a permanent feature at the AGO. It’s the first time a Canadian gallery has purchased a contemporary artwork through a massive crowdfunding campaign, so at this one, expect to see, well, crowds. ago.ca Summerlicious Jul 5-21 Toronto’s popular foodie event heats up in the summertime, with chefs from the city’s top restaurants offering a plethora of seasonal prix fixe menus.

one thing

Normalizing cannabis use – and stripping it of its stoner-culture stigma – is a feat for licensed producers. One approach is to encircle it with facts and cultivate a contemporary, inclusive lifestyle with all the trappings. “We’ve had a strong focus on creating a community, educating future consumers and trying to undo some of the harmful propaganda that stereotyped cannabis during prohibition,” says Kirsten Gauthier, chief marketing officer of 48 North, an Ontario cannabis company. The plethora of disposable Dazed and Confused–style accessories in the marketplace doesn’t help. Enter Vanessa Eckstein of Toronto’s Blok Design. “We moved away from what a cannabis product looked like in the past and took it into a place where it can be appreciated as a unique object in our everyday lives” she says. So for F8,…

Taste of Design Where to eat and drink in style Our favourite boites treat design as much more than a side dish. Take Milky’s Coffee (760 Dundas West), for instance. Its interior, by Batay-Csorba, is wrapped – flooring, walls and ceiling – in diamond-shaped Matita wood from Relative Space, creating a cohesive “loud minimalist” geometry perfect for sipping high-rev bevvies in Anony-designed cups. Read all about it – and such other style-forward hot spots as Casa La Palma, Kōjin and Aloette – on our website. 1. Perfect pour In a bipartisan move, Jamie Wolfond, founder of Good Thing, launched the Diametric jug. The stoneware prototype unites two opposing styles: ancient pottery and the Bauhaus movement.
