Jason and Lars Dressler collaborate to design and build bespoke furnishings, lighting, other objects and interiors. Focusing on sustainability, with an eye to material, process, and craftsmanship, Brothers Dressler create custom works and limited edition pieces from their downtown Toronto workshop/studio. Using local, reclaimed, found, ecologically friendly and responsibly harvested materials, they promote local manufacturing and long-lasting heirloom objects. Their designs use as much of the material as possible, giving cut-offs and waste streams new life.
Come Up To My Room (CUTMR) is the Gladstone Hotel’s annual alternative design event. CUTMR invites artists and designers to show us what goes on inside their heads. Coming together in dialogue and collaboration, participants are limited only by their imaginations, making CUTMR one of the most exciting shows in Toronto. January 24 – 27, 2013.
