Description

Ontario Wood, the City of Toronto and IIDEXCanada have teamed up again to bring you IIDEX Woodshop: 14 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 200,000+ ash trees in the next 5 years. 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.

The 2015 winners, selected from over 70 entries are Kunikazu Hamanishi Katrina Tompkins of Tinsel & Sawdust Jake Whillans of Jake Whillans – Craft + Design Kichul Lee of architect-k & Doosu Shin of Frog Mark Pylypczak of Mapyl Danielle Whitley and Sanaz Shirshekar Aneil Singh of Saman Enterprise Inc.
