Western Living Designers of the Year 2013 – Vancouver

This year’s Western Living’s Annual Design Awards took place in an extremely unique venue, a lofty airplane hanger in Richmond BC. This event recognizes some of the emerging and prominent fashion, industrial, interior designers and architects located in Western Canada.  I had the privilege of helping out at this year’s event and was blown away by the venue, stylish guests and array of multidisciplinary design talent.

Among this year’s winners were Burgers Architecture for the Architecture category, Loyal Loot for Industrial design, Sophie Burke Design for Interior design and Obakki for Fashion design. Check out the links to their websites to see some of their stunning design work. As extraordinary as the winners are, I have always been almost equally as interested in the “one’s to watch”. One industrial design firm to look out for is Tomnuk Design, a brand which offers beautifully simple items such as rolling pins and drink muddlers. Check out their site to see some of their wonderful work. Below are some examples of the collections of some of the exquisite designers in attendance.
