For furniture makers, it is not always the object alone that is pursued. As students at OCAD University, we are encouraged to look beyond the final object, to explore and to develop our thinking around the context. The role of furniture as a medium for personal expression, as a reflection of social and cultural norms, and as an influence upon human behaviour becomes the focal point. This exhibition presents original furniture pieces that take these broader discussions into consideration. Growth requires exploration; the goal is to plant the seeds of passion rather than ego.

This annual exhibition of furniture created by the students of OCAD University is now in its ninth year and has become a valued tradition within the school’s design department.
