MOVING PARTS: Design for a Complex World
IDS launches its theme for 2023 - MOVING PARTS: Design for a complex world. The call is open for exhibiting companies, proposals for features, and speakers for IDS Toronto, taking place January 19-22.
MOVING PARTS asks: how are contemporary designers creating, sourcing, producing and distributing products in an ever-changing landscape?
Designers are now faced with a reality that requires not only creativity but ongoing adaptation, leading to a new way of working - building constant change and flexibility into their practice. In the last three years, interior designers, architects and manufacturers have torn up the rulebook.
The pandemic re-configured our lives, from how we furnish our home and office to what constitutes a work day. Following the pandemic, global events changed shipping, manufacturing and pricing. Alongside these phenomena, society has accepted and realized the urgency of the climate crisis - yet another factor re-framing consumer choices.
At IDS 2023, visitors will experience the Moving Parts of the design world: products incorporating sustainable materials and components, designs adapting to how humans want to live and interact now, and work resulting from reinvented manufacturing.
Igniting innovation & celebrating design tradition.
