Northern Touch
Things You Didn’t Know Were Designed in Canada

 

Free Admission
  Now - Sept. 16
  DX Ground Floor  |  234 Bay Street

Think fast: name something designed by a Canadian. If the Blackberry, Umbra’s Garbino, and an all-plastic Thermos come to mind, you’re correct

But did you know land-demining boots, the world’s fastest bike, and the first completely electronic stethoscope were designed in Canada? Northern Touch presents a survey of housewares, furniture, lifestyle objects, and gadgets from Design Exchange’s Permanent Collection that highlight design innovations in Canada from the last half of the twentieth century to present day.

Northern Touch offers a small window into the national studios, facilities, and labs where innovation in design and technology has taken place. Canadian makers, designers, tinkerers, and start-ups continue to push the envelope, changing the landscapes of and approaches to where and how we live, eat, work, learn, and play.
