Ontario Wood, the City of Toronto, and IIDEXCanada team up to bring you IIDEX Woodshop: 17 innovative wood prototypes that utilize Toronto’s untapped ash wood resource.

Globalization and climate change have brought pests like the Emerald Ash Borer to North America where they are destroying forests. In Toronto alone, the Borer will bring down all 200,000+ of local ash trees by 2018. IIDEX Woodshop aims to reduce the number of ash trees headed for the landfill by creating innovative, market-ready commercial and consumer prototypes. This IIDEXCanada annual special feature exhibition is generously supported by Ontario Wood, Ministry of Natural Resources, and the City of Toronto.

The 2016 winners, whose designs will be showcased, include Emily Vender, Edward WooHyun Chung, Kevin Helm, Deagan McDonald & Kelsey Nilsen, Norman Cramer, Jonathon Anderson, Ryo Yonekawa, Christine Sheu, Romney Shipway, Ryan Hunwicks, Christopher Solar, Miles Keller, Hamilton Holmes, Matt Ryan, Donovan Tapunha, Mark Pylypczak, Stephen Dalrymple, and Joshua Duerrstein.

Using Urban Wood Forum: Tue, Jan 17, 6:00-9:00pm

This event will explore the initiatives that have been established to support urban wood utilization and showcase valuable end uses including furniture and green building designs. Designers, architects and other industry experts will speak about their salvaged wood designs and experience working with diseased ash wood. Following the speaker session, a reception will be held in the City Hall Rotunda where the IIDEX Woodshop Exhibit will display the 17 prototypes. Speakers for this year will be announced soon, stay tuned! Reception to follow. Click here to learn more about IIDEX Woodshop.
