Motherbrand seeks out opportunities to collaborate with Canadian creatives from a wide range of disciplines. Our projects bring together these unique talents and perspectives to find inspiration in our distinct 'local' culture.
Our best-known project, Cabin introduced new works by more that twenty or Canada's brightest designers. Drawing from the best of the cabin experience, both real and imagined, the familiar objects of the cabin were transformed for the everyday. Cabin has been shown in Tokyo, New York, Toronto, Edmonton and Calgary. Selected works have been included in exhibits and the permanent collections of the Cooper-Hewitt Design Museum, NYC.
In addition to the Cabin exhibit, Motherbrand's activities range from publishing (Hypergraphia Magazine), scenario planning (Milano Explorer), design education (Across the Lines workshop) and presenting numerous lectures on design and ideas.
We have chosen to launch our latest project here at CUTMR because we feel that the cross-disciplinary nature of this event reflects our own collaborative approach and vision.
