Prototype at IDS Vancouver was the inaugural juried design competition featuring the prototypes of new residential design products. This booth showcased up-and-coming designers with never-before-seen concepts. By taking on a curatorial role, Creative Shift Studio and the team’s vision was to engage the next generation of designers with the trade and public by creating an impactful display of these unique products.

Prototype would not be possible without the generous collaboration of designers, builders and suppliers, locally and internationally, who donated their time, products and skills to create this design-forward collaboration.
