Description

Do Design is a unique, annual street-wide event held during Toronto Design Week. Now in its sixth year, Do Design showcases works of contemporary designers (furniture, objects, architectural and graphic design are all considered) in a diverse variety of storefronts, cafes, walk-ups or windows of participating venues in the Trinity Bellwoods Business Improvement Area (Dundas Street West between Bathurst and Grace streets).

LOOK FOR…

Mend It… with a Comrags kit

This special project for Do Design features a limited edition designer kit by Comrags (Joyce Gunhouse and Judy Cornish) produced by dittybag (Kathryn Walter of FELT and Greg Woodbury). This mending kit, showcased in the storefront window, along with a projection seen above the shop (viewable 24 hours daily during Do Design), intends to focus attention on the art of mending. A series of hands sewing featuring local designers reads like an ad while offering a meditation on this fading practice.
