Over the years, Tables, Chairs & Other Unrelated Objects has become a growing tradition within the school’s design department. For its seventh edition, and as part of the Toronto Design Offsite Festival, the exhibition will be hosted by Artscape Daniels Spectrum for the first time ever, while Ignite Gallery will concurrently showcase works from this past year’s cohort. The exhibition is curated by Ellie Oram and Jasmin Liu with the input of our long time sponsor Monarch Plywood and the furniture design faculty.
For furniture makers, it is not always the object alone that is pursued. The role of furniture is explored; 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.
