In a first for Salon International de Design de Montréal, which takes place May 23 to 26, visitors will have the opportunity to experience a 1:1 residential interior on-site, as Bonneville Homes unveils its Pur-Z prefab concept. The two-storey house by Blouin Tardif Architectes will be fully furnished with Wilsam’s Silestone quartz kitchen countertops and dining area; Jardin de Ville’s patio pieces on the terrace; and Roche Bobois’s interior furnishings.
The Pur-Z home shares the floor with products from over 500 exhibitors in pavilions dedicated to green building, international exhibitors, lighting, fine art, and innovations for the work environment. SIDIM also has an interdisciplinary area for custom and one-off works by designers, architects and other makers. A showcase area designed by ceramic and stone manufacturer Ciot will present a large-scale sculptural installation by
mosaic maestro Igor Marziali, who will be on-site to demonstrate his art.
Some of the city’s leading talents will also be there, including atelier Bois Debout, with its furniture made from recycled and repurposed maple, birch and cherry wood offcuts; and Tangible Studio, which transforms post-consumer textile waste into hanging felt curtains and screens. Watch for Flowerssori, which produces beautiful, ergonomic school furniture for kids.
We are also recommending Design Agora’s mini-conferences, including a Pecha Kucha, plus an array of conferences on global trends in interior design and the latest LED technology. The weekend will definitely feel celebratory with a number of ceremonies recognizing the best in design, as Sico honours New Talent, Lamcom hands out awards for exceptional interiors and products in the Grands Prix du Design, and SIDIM grants Excellence Awards and scholarships.
Meanwhile, the Ville de Montréal’s Bureau du Design launches Code Souvenir, a pop-up shop with more than 100 products by 27 acclaimed Montréal designers. Code Souvenir runs May 21 to 26 and sets up in locations across Montreal, including SIDIM, the C2-MTL conference, and Haut+Fort.
And don’t miss the Azure‘s booth while walking the show.
SIDIM takes place May 23 to 26, at Montreal’s Place Bonaventure.
