“This is the first time we’ll be exhibiting outside North America and the UK, so we’re pretty excited! We’re hoping to redraw the boundaries of our Toronto-based practice to include Scandinavian clients.”

“Toronto-based design firm MSDS Studio recently completed what looks to be the perfect workspace for e-commerce software creator Shopify.”

HYPEBEAST

“The design of the office is built on the metaphor of the mechanisms of contemporary commerce: the front office block and reception area are the market, the rear office is shipping and transport, while the third floor, currently under development, will be production or fabrication.”

DEZEEN

“THE JUNCTION, Toronto.
In the past five years, a vibrant design and art scene has flourished in the Junction, an impressive fact given the West End Toronto neighborhood’s history.”

METROPOLIS MAGAZINE

“Umbra is going back to its roots. This Toronto-based company, which started 34 years ago selling chic window shades to small, independent design stores, has grown into a $130 million global business.”

NEW YORK TIMES

“Is it lighting or is it sculpture? In the case of Toronto-based designer Jessica Nakanishi’s Ladder Light, it’s both.”

GLOBE and MAIL

“The monochromic interior of Jessica Nakanishi and Jonathan Sabine’s installation for this year’s IDS trends space See the Light paid homage to Superstudio’s 1969 Continuous Monument.”

AZURE

“Conceptualizing light as decorative and emotive, rather than utilitarian, the Ladder Light gets hung on a wall like a necklace on skin, its natural palette and simple form echoing the feminine quality of the fixture’s soft light.”

DESIGN MILK

“Constructed using metal components, tubes are connected by a leather strap which
is woven through the side wall of each tube – concealing the wire which runs between each strip of LED with a riveted loop at the top from which the fixture hangs.”

Design Boom

“Adding a hardwired twist to food presentation, Bento Box by Jessica Nakanishi are handmade ceramic plates, subdivided into compartments in the Japanese bento lunch box style.”

MOCO LOCO

“Walking into the 12,000-square-foot space–complete with 12 ping pong tables, two rooms, two bars, and a full food menu and cocktail list–it’s clear that ping pong has finally entered the realm of ‘cool.’”

BLOGTO

“You have only to walk through the glassy, open-minded, Scandinavian-Japanesey hybrid space to get it. Tables are modular and multi-purpose; so are the felt couches that often serve in place of desk chairs.”

TORONTO STANDARD

STOCKHOLM
