‘Phase 1’ is the first collection of wooden furniture designed and made by Daej Hamilton, a Black female woodworker, and founder of Daej Designs.
This collection consists of small scale surface furniture such side tables, consoles and coffee tables, as well as seating such as stools and benches. Each piece is intentionally designed to cater to modernesque styles that heavily influence Toronto, while also including elements of mid century design.
Using wood from trees that have fallen, this collection was purposely made with sustainability at the centre. The attention paid to the creation of this collection reminds us that furniture is meant to become sentimental. Each piece is crafted to last and become well used as it is passed down through generations.
Right now, finding comfort in our homes is so important, which is why BAND Gallery partnered with Daej Hamilton to present practically and artfully designed furniture that you can bring into your own home.
Through the run of the exhibition gallery hours are Thursdays-Saturdays 12-6pm, Sundays 1-5pm, and Wednesdays by appointment only.
