WantedDesign brings five U.S. cities to Toronto for a series of American boxes to participate in the “Outside the Box” concept for TO DO. Collaborating with local correspondents in the U.S., WantedDesign will bring specific creative vision from New York, Seattle, Detroit, Los Angeles and Chicago through an unexpected selection of objects to fit in five unique boxes.
