From the radical Project G stereo that every well-appointed, Pop-inspired "bachelor pad" had to have, to the wedge-shaped Contempra phone that quickly convinced homeowners to replace their boring black telephones, Canadian design has entered homes and shaped lives. Design in Canada showcases designs that were destined for mass production, and covers everything from popular plastic dishes to refined high-style furniture. Whether exploring post-war materials like plastic or aluminum, or finding ways to capture and tame new technology, Canadian designers have worked with imagination, style and an eye to the global market.
