The designer / maker movement

 

The Pacific Northwest is home to a thriving, cutting-edge designer/maker community. This community of creatives is collectively pushing the boundaries of design and excelling in craft and construction. Their methods are deeply rooted in refined aesthetics, advanced production processes, and use of exceptional materials resulting in a variety of contemporary and considered pieces.

Curated and considered

 

ADDRESS is not only an assembly of designers and makers, it represents a new way of approaching design altogether. A curated approach that reaches beyond one size-fits-all design. It’s an assembly of designer/makers, deeply dedicated to their craft presenting expertise and exceptional work.

Not just another trade show or craft market

 

It’s part-gallery, part-pop-up shop, and part-showroom, produced by Kate Duncan, a Vancouver-based furniture designer/maker and curated by interior designer Amber Kingsnorth from Māk Interiors. ADDRESS is an unprecedented platform to showcase art and design from some of North America’s most elite designer/makers.
