Toronto-based designer Adam Fullerton takes an unexpected approach when crafting his pieces. Working in both furniture and lighting, as well as creating signage, Fullerton creates both custom and pre-made work. Fullerton uses vintage pieces, like reclaimed wood and cast iron radiators to create entirely new designs that have both a retro vibe and a modern sensibility. The result is an aesthetic that is at once nostalgic and contemporary.
I’ve only been in Toronto for two years right now so I’ve only taken part in one TODO festival, I used a window at the retail store, Toronto Designers Market 1605 Queen St.West, where I rented a booth to display my work.
My inspiration for my upcycling work, comes from either the reused material that the piece is focused around or inspiration from existing design that can be re-created by repurposing materials. I’ve also taken a lot away from travelling overseas where ‘upcycling’ is more of a way of life, the creativity I’ve seen blows me away.
TODO seems like a great event with a lot of people taking part and displaying amazing work and putting in a huge effort to showcase their talents, the event leads you to not only discover new artists in your home city but also galleries and shops you might not have known of before.
