‘Work/Life’ is an annual exhibition that explores new prototypes for contemporary life, showcasing the work of eight Canadian designers and studios including Maha Alavi, Jeremy Labelle Design, Brandon Lim, Noda Designs, notoro, Ava Nourbaran, Plural, and Superwise.

In a world where home sizes were already dwindling and our ideas of working and living have been constantly redefined, the boundaries between work and life were drastically altered by the pandemic. Work/Life has a whole new meaning. 

How has the stay-at-home order changed your life, creating a new context for everyday living? How has being at home 24/7 changed the way we use objects? Are you hacking your way through it? How can we share these inventions or turn hacks into viable products? The boundaries between work, home, and “life” are hard to define. 

‘Work/Life’ is organized by DesignTO in partnership with Umbra. A jury will recognize best-in-show with a Best Product award and a cash prize. Visitors to the exhibition will be able to cast their vote to award Fan Favourite.

Participants

Maha Alavi, Jeremy Labelle Design, Brandon Lim, Noda Designs, notoro, Ava Nourbaran, Plural, Superwise
