Interior High Notes: Residential wonders in Atlanta, Whistler, Milan and more in Azure's September 2019 issue!

The Monogram Dinner by Design presented by Caesarstone has become a highlight of Toronto’s Design Week, and a chance for local firms to show off their most flamboyant selves. This year the settings were wildly ambitious, with each studio letting their creative juices flow in a friendly game of upping the ante.

Between January 21 and 24, DX’s main exhibition hall was transformed into a stage for the 12 dining tables, each shrouded within its own boxed-in platform that made them distinct, and as intimate as a dining room. Here are our favourite moments from the opening night, full of design and feasting.

Moriyama & Teshima Architects’ table, surrounded in steel-bead strands that had the look of falling rain.

 

Mirrored walls cranked up the bling factor at DesignAgency’s dining pavilion.

 

Guests at the table by Jenny Francis Design received a hardcover book of the architect’s own favourite recipes. Francis is also an accomplished chef.
