IDSwest 2010

Last Wednesday through Sunday, at the new Vancouver Convention Centre, there was a thrill for the senses. The talented and very organized folks behind Interior Design Show West provided the interior design industry of the West Coast and beyond a chance to show off their latest and greatest. There were countless exhibits, insightful speakers and brilliant designs from well established and emerging creatives.

We exhibited some of what we have to offer in design excellence from around the world. Lines of fluorescent tape ran across our booth and over pieces that led to panels reading the names of those piece’s countries of origin.

Clockwise from top left: Bensen Format shelving prototype, Emeco 111 Navy chairs, Flos Superarchimoon lamp, Cappellini Proust chair, Zannota Sacco / Bocci 28 sercies / Bensen Brix / Vitra Vegetal chair and Flos Glo Balls / Shawn Place’s SP210
