Industrial Design at DesignTO

Calling all Industrial Design aficionados! If you haven’t checked out our DesignTO Festival Schedule yet, head to our website and see what’s in store for 2019! There are always so many things to see, but only so much time. 2019 will be our biggest festival to date, so to help you focus in on what you want to check out we have created a curated list of exhibits, installations and events showcasing Industrial Design at this year’s festival.

‘AESTUS’ blends material and machine. Inspired by the dynamic relationship between nature and machine, AESTUS is a series of stratified wooden vases designed and manufactured to explore a new synthesis of traditional materials and modern technology. Carved from solid beech plywood by an industrial robot, the vases capture the fluidity of the machine’s movements in the depth of the wooden texture.
