ID Studio 4: Design for Health INDS-3004 Exhibit

Friday, December 7, 2018 - 12:00pm to Friday, December 21, 2018 - 12:00pm

The course is ID Studio 4: Design for Health INDS 3004.

The problem as identified in the project brief was: 

Mental Health supports come in a variety of responses, one of which is Service Animals. Policy and legislation around these animals is vague and confusing in Ontario. Because of this people who rely on Service Animals for PTSD, anxiety, autism and other (often invisible) health conditions are often refused entry with their Service Animals to transit/travel providers, retail locations and restaurants etc. To further the problem, some people see the gap in legislation to 'fake' Service Animals needs by buying vests and cards online, and provide these as their proof of need.

The students were tasked to investigate the ecosystem around Service Animals as related to mental health, and to provide both service and product responses.

"Made in Canada", a presentation of designs by 2nd year Industrial Design students

Monday, December 10, 2018 - 6:00pm to 9:00pm

The brief was to design two gift products that represent the Canadian Identity on every level, at price points of $20 and $50. The products are to fit in a suitcase in order to be brought around the world and embody the Canadian spirit when given. In this way, the class was challenged to materialize the Canadian identity.

The students explored the theme of identity through analysis of iconic brands, lectures from veteran industrial designers and polling of Canadians about their understandings of self.

Though the Canadian Identity may have seemed difficult to define at first, these students have come up with codified products that represent their findings about Canada emotionally, rationally, aesthetically, metaphorically and beyond.

Theo Richardson & Luke Ceolin designed a line of planters in maple wood containing maple tree seeds to give the gift of the iconic Canadian maple in a package that can fit in your carry-on.

Anna Lucia Zablah & Edward Chan designed a line of drinking accessories in stainless steel and wood that foster a Canadian atmosphere no matter where used.

Max Minuzzo and Justine Orbovic explored wood bending patterns to create unique light designs that use shadows and light to change the atmosphere of any space.

Connor Shopa has created two tabletop products, the mountain shaker and fire pit lamp that are inspired by Canadian elements and traditions.

Austin Mercieca and Nathan Henry designed arctic-inspired products including an inuksuk Aurora Borealis mood light made of walnut and a narwhal letter opener made from steel and maple wood.

Jason Cheng and Oleg Gorlenko designed a multipurpose rack and sunrise clock/light with Canadian materials and aesthetics in mind.

James Zhao and Ayomide Olagbemi designed the aurora light and the osan citrus fruit squeezer, perfect gifts for loved ones.

Danny Kim and Ethan Shin designed The Canadian Chessboard and The Gray Jay Hoodie to add a Canadian cultural influence into people's daily life.

 

Join us Monday, December 10th at 6:00 pm at Bergo Design, 28 Tank House Lane, to experience the future of design by the next generation of Canadian designers.

Design & Innovation talk by Phil White

Thursday, November 29, 2018 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Phil co-founded Cervelo Cycles with Gerard Vroomen in 1995. (the name Cervélo is a portmanteau of cervello, the Italian word for brain, and vélo, the French word for bike). Over the next ten years it became the engineering leader in the bike industry and, arguably, completed redefined it. With a focus on technical and marketing innovation, Cervelo grew from a garage startup to become the most popular triathlon bike in the world (based on the Ironman bike count) and the most popular bike in pro cycling (based on Cycling News reader polls). Tour Magazine recognized Cervélo as the continued engineering leader when they found it was the fastest bike in every category that they tested- aero road, lightweight road, and TT/triathlon. 

Cervélo was the first bike company in decades “to put our money where our mouth is”, and drive the sport forward by starting our own pro cycling team - the Cervélo Test Team- which became the #1 ranked team in the world within 6 months. But the Team also innovated in many other areas as well including fan engagement and product development as well as behind the scenes. 

After the sale of Cervélo to Pon Holdings in 2012, I stayed with Pon as the non-executive Chairman of Cervélo, and as a Board member & the Chief Innovation Officer of Pon Bike. In July 2017 Phil  left his positions at Pon and Cervélo to pursue other adventures in innovation, mobility, and performance. 

Phil continue to believe in the power of entrepreneurship, innovation, & design. He has been a guest lecturer on these topics at a variety of Universities and Colleges in Europe and America including, the University of Toronto, Ontario College of Art & Design University, Universities d’Ottawa, and École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL). As well as an advisor and Board member to a number of companies and organizations, and has been a regular guest on various business & technical forums.

Design Wo/ManiFesT.O. creating new ideas for Toronto

Design Wo/ManiFesT.O.
Thursday, January 24, 2019 - 6:30pm to 8:30pm

What futuristic design plans were formulated for Toronto? Have any achieved their goals as intended? What is an appropriate design vision for an evolving, diverse city, one with a complex history, and a myriad of growing urban challenges as well as opportunities? How can we engage citizens, including creative practitioners, politicians, community advocates in a participatory, collective exercise to (re)imagine Toronto through design? These are some of the questions that Design Wo/ManiFesT.O. aims to explore as we use our pending ‘2020 hindsight’ for advancing a world leading, dynamic city of tomorrow.

 

You are invited to the kick-off of Design Wo/ManiFesT.O. — a research project that is looking at how design and creative practice has served and supported the process of city-making in Toronto through major changes in the past and where it can lead us in the next wave of social, demographic, and technological change. This research project will be taking place over a 2-year space and we hope that your input will be included in.

 

The event will take place on January 24, 2019 from 6:30 - 8:30 pm at the Open Space Gallery in 49 McCaul Street (a key research space on the OCAD University campus). This event is part of the annual Toronto Design Offsite festival (TODO) 2019.
