VISION WORX

It all begins with inspiration, a flash of creativity and a vision. However, transforming this possibility to reality takes time, expertise and business acumen; something that II BY IV DESIGN understands well.

In this month’s newsletter we are excited to share with you the realization of several projects. The Bianca Condos, a highly anticipated residential development on The New Dupont, now in the pre-launch phase its chic interior designs have a rich sophistication and dramatic sense of scale. We also share with you our new furniture line, the Scribble Collection and a sculptural side table called the Tear Drop which officially launched June 12th at NeoCon. Finally we invite you to vote for Minto 30Roe and the faceted wood canopy that defines its main lobby. An exercise in engineering, the impressive millwork piece is up for the People’s Choice award in an international public arts competition called the COD+A Awards.

FLASHBACK – THE RESTAURANT GUYS

Spaces that stand the test of time are ones, above all, that you want to revisit; they continually draw you back because they are memorable…because they have a point of view. In this month’s newsletter we revisit a few of II BY IV DESIGN’s stand out projects from a bygone “era” that are still relevant today.

In the early 2000’s social networking was gaining traction, bedazzled pockets were hot, bold pastels were in (so were long pointy shoes) and everyone wanted stainless steel appliances. Thankfully, trends will come and go but good design never goes out of style.

MADE YOU LOOK

At II BY IV DESIGN there is no signature look to our work, simply the right look. We create designs that leave a lasting impression; whether through facilitating an experience, provoking an emotional connection or through incorporating elements that are innovative and unique.

In this month’s newsletter we take a closer look at the Crystal Bach and Mahler, where we create a guest experience that references majestic European scenery; we search out new and notable inspiration at the Salone del Mobile in Milan; and Dan and Keith spend a weekend with Sandra Ainsley and Philip Baldwin exploring the emotional connections associated with art.

COMMUNITY FOCUS

II BY IV DESIGN is an international design studio with projects throughout the world and offices in both Toronto and New York. Wherever our projects are located, it is essential to understand the culture and communities we are working with and in; taking design outside of the studio and into the urban sphere.

From a new midtown location for the Liquor Control Board of Ontario (LCBO) with geo-targeted design and product selection; to a new retail promenade in St. James Town and the chic Via Bloor condominiums; to seeking out inspiring creative visionaries at the Interior Design Show and the active participation of our own designers in the TO Design Offsite festival.

ART, CULTURE & CRUISING

There is something about the summer, especially in Toronto when the city comes alive. Longer days and warmer nights see people out and about, making the most of this fleeting season. Whether you are interested in festivals, food trucks or fireworks there seems to be something for everyone with an underlying theme of exploration. In this newsletter we explore the artistic energy of the Thompson Toronto’s Lobby Bar; the mesmerizing play of color and light in Dale Chihuly’s ROM (Royal Ontario Museum) exhibit; and live vicariously through Keith and a team of our designers as they travel to Europe to prepare for the inaugural voyage of the Crystal Mozart.
