DX INTERSECTION 2015: KISMET
HONOURING YABU PUSHELBERG

 


 

On November 7, we hosted our annual party celebrating all things creative and celebrated the chance meeting of two individuals who have inspired and influenced the international world of design.

DX Intersection is a vital and preeminent annual fundraising event for Design Exchange that is anticipated and attended by hundreds of art, fashion, design and philanthropic guests. Each year, DX celebrates a Canadian individual or partnership that exemplifies creativity, outstanding talent, and innovative vision.

In 2015, we recognized and honoured a partnership that has risen to international acclaim and influence. Design Exchange is delighted to announce George Yabu & Glenn Pushelberg, founders of Yabu Pushelberg, as the DXI 2015 Awardees.

We celebrated this dynamic, inspiring, and influential pair. Eat, drink, dance and celebrate with friends and colleagues in a fashion befitting George Yabu and Glenn Pushelberg.

OCTOBER 18, 2013
DX INTERSECTION

 

On Friday, October 18th, Design Exchange was transformed into a hotbed of design for its second annual DX INTERSECTION fundraiser. Over 800 guests from art, fashion, design and society joined this year’s GameChangers Byron and Dexter Peart of WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie at a party inspired by the world’s best markets.

From the party’s entrance converted into an outdoor flower market supplying guests flower crowns and paper wrapped bouquets to the Trading Floor’s gritty underground market complete with 3D projections of the aurora borealis designed by Common Good, to the Pop-Up street market by La Carnita and Home of the Brave in the library, and the sounds of acclaimed electronic dance quartet Azari & III, this year’s DXI offered enchantment at every corner. Guests were captivated by the incredible Castor light installation presented by GE Monogram, as well as incredible music by Sennheiser and Embrace Presents.
