SIDIM 2010

This weekend was a celebration of design in Montreal, Canada--particularly pieces created and manufacturer in the city--at the 22nd annual Montreal International Interior Design Show (SIDIM). While the big guns like Moen, Cosentino, and Jenn-Air were showing their wares, the big attraction was the works of local designers and students from three Montreal universities. Dwell associate editor Miyoko Ohtake walked the showfloor before enjoying her favorite Québecois treat: poutine (French fries topped with cheese curds and gravy). Here's what she found on the floor.

The entrance to the event was a showcase of sustainable design. Among the exhibitors was Green Wall by Vertuose, a Montreal-based company. The structure, which can be custom designed for any space and house living or artificial plants, features a stainless steel frame and pockets made of recycled materials for holding soil and the plants' root balls. Best of all, the system self-irrigates so maintenance is minimal.
