WantedDesign and Toronto Design Offsite Festival will partner to present the fifth edition of Outside the Box. Collaborating with local correspondents from 6 Canadian and 6 US cities to bring specific creative visions through a selection of objects to fit in banker’s boxes. This edition’s theme is DISCOVERY. For us, discovery is the essence of this project, where we can find something new within each box. Discovery inspires, invites play and travel, and exposes us to new ideas, inspirations, and experiences.
