This month New York gallery Relative Space is hosting From Quebec, a boutique show featuring 36 talented designers from Montreal. From housewares, to furniture, to toys and apparel, the designs in the show highlight the ingenuity coming from our friends to the north.
Inspired by modern trends paired with a Canadian twist, the crisp, bright and youthful designs represent a sensibility unique to Quebec.
Designed by recent University de Montreal grads Maud Beauchamp and Marie-Pier Guilmain, these cutesy cardboard pet houses reflect the notion that pet products should be better designed and more refined than what's typically available in most shops. Their first design (right) was inspired by Canadian hunting cabins.
