David Chang, Andrea Chin & Amrita Takhar | Room 207
SUSPECT: A masquerade of objects, materials and functions. Each piece in the room is a play off of a permanent element of the room.
David Chang is a recent graduate from the Industrial Design program at the Ontario College of Art and Design and holds a BFA from the University of Toronto. For the past four years David has been working as a Visual Stylist for Canadian retailer Holt Renfrew. Outside of developing concepts and creating props and installations for the Toronto flagship storeâ€™s windows and interiors, David has a continued interest in designing and producing various products that bring together design and art.
Andrea Chin graduated from Queenâ€™s University in 2005 with honours in visual arts. However, she just couldnâ€™t get enough of school and enrolled at the Ontario College of Art and Design. After graduating from the Industrial Design program, she left Toronto for a stint in Milan to work as an editor at designboom. Working across disciplines, Andreaâ€™s designs explore the contextual relationship between object, space and place, injected with the occasional dose of humor. Her work has been exhibited in the Interior Design Show, the Souvenir Shop at â€˜Come Up to My Roomâ€™, Radiant Dark and IIDEX, and published in NOW and Canadian Interiors Magazine.
Amrita Takhar is a recent graduate of the Industrial Design program at the Ontario College of Art and Design and holds a degree in Human Ecology from the University of Alberta. She finds design enticing because it touches on an endless range of topics and can be used as a tool for positive change and commentary. Amrita has worked in international development in the past and plans to combine her design sensibilities and entrepreneurial spirit in her project for Come Up To My Room.
