IDS launches its theme for 2023 – MOVING PARTS: Design for a complex world. The call is open for exhibiting companies, proposals for features, and speakers for IDS Toronto, taking place January 19-22.
MOVING PARTS asks: how are contemporary designers creating, sourcing, producing and distributing products in an ever-changing landscape?
Designers are now faced with a reality that requires not only creativity but ongoing adaptation, leading to a new way of working – building constant change and flexibility into their practice. In the last three years, interior designers, architects and manufacturers have torn up the rulebook.
