‘Outside the Box’ builds a map of design in North America.

This third annual travelling exhibition features the work of over 70 designers from 11 cities across Canada and the U.S. Curated by local correspondents, each Bankers box houses a collection of thoughtfully designed objects, reflecting the particular resources and makers of that area.


Vancouver is part land, part sea, and part sky. Positioned between rugged coast and towering mountains, the city’s skylines are varied and vast; as is the community of designers and makers. Utilizing a wide variety of materials and techniques, Vancouver creatives excel in design and construction. Leveraging the impact of living largely outdoors, designers in this community are often influenced by trees, tides, and all things by nature. Coastlines and mountain ranges are at the fingertips of Vancouverites, and can be witnessed in the work by these Vancouver-based designers.
