Renova World House, a larger-than-life modular home, a celebration of design.
For one night each year, Toronto is transformed into a contemporary art gallery, where people can experience the works of hundreds of artists from sundown until sunrise. This year, Saturday, October 5 is that magical night, and the event promises to be bigger and bolder than ever before.
Renova has been given center stage at Toronto's Dundas Square, a hub of social activity in the heart of the city. Renova will be revealing a larger-than-life modular home, designed by Luigi Ferrara, the Dean of Arts and Design at George Brown College. This Renova pavilion is entitled Renova World House, and is a celebration of design, incorporating Renova product in the most creative ways imaginable, including a 9 foot tree, constructed using colourful Renova bathroom tissue rolls. Luigi secured the collaboration and contributions of many artists to bring this pavilion to life.
A portion of the Renova pavilion was showcased at IIDEX last month, and was awarded a silver prize for innovation. IIDEX Canada's annual national design and architecture exposition and conference. You can watch the story of the Renova World House project unfold through a video series at Renova Canada's YouTube channel.
