DesignTO  DesignTO (formerly Toronto Design Offsite Festival) is where art & design meet. #DesignTO19 features 100+ exhibitions and events city-wide Jan 18-27.

Part of last year’s festival, the window installation, '49 Circles' by Rob Shostak is a visual representation of Toronto streets that are classified with the suffix “Circle.” The piece explores the relationship between the realities of landscape, lapses of perception and the power of names.
.
‘49 Circles’ was also the winner of the DesignTO Award presented by Herman Miller for People’s Choice: Favourite Window Installation.

The people have spoken! Winner of the DesignTO Award presented by Herman Miller for People’s Choice: Favourite Window Installation, '49 Circles' by Rob Shostak is a visual representation of Toronto streets that are classified with the suffix “Circle.”

The piece explores the relationship between the realities of landscape, lapses of perception and the power of names. The disconnect between these three elements are more often imperceptible. While travelling, slight turns, dead ends and preconceived notions of space belie the true nature of the anthropo‘scenic’ route. A global map in everyone’s pocket has increased the primacy of cartography in our everyday lives, while also desensitizing us to the inbetweens of our journey.

Here's a throwback to the winner of the Best Product award at the 'Work/Life' exhibition presented in collaboration with @umbra_ltd. .
Designed by @allstudio_ , PIVOT is a light meant to accompany its user in a spontaneous way at times when intense lighting would not be appropriate (middle of the night, children's bedroom, etc.). PIVOT is meant to be used in multiple positions, adapting to different lighting situation.
