Shipped across the country in Bankers boxes, the Toronto Design Offsite Festival and WantedDesign unpack, install, and present a dozen distinct national and international showcases. Working with local correspondents, each box includes original works from local designers, reflecting the particular resources and makers of each area.

This seventh edition of ‘Outside the Box’ features responses on the theme “matter.” This theme encompasses material transformation and change, and the essence of material. It looks at how materials are created, reused, or recycled. Correspondents are invited to explore “matter” in any way.

Participating cities and correspondents:

Asheville, NC – Marilyn Zapf

Boston – Kelly Harris Smith

Fogo Island – Alexandra McIntosh

Montreal – Tara Farsky Milroy

Philadelphia – Philadelphia Center for Architecture and Design 

Portland – Studio Gorm

Saint John – Geof Ramsay

San Francisco Bay Area – Melanie Abrantes

Saskatoon – Crystal Bueckert | Storefront

Seattle – Darin Montgomery

Toronto – SOUVENIR | Danielle Suppa

Vancouver – Riley McFerrin
