Toronto Design Festival!

I just realized that it may be too late, but I wanted to share my favourite part of the Toronto Design Festival that didn't seem to get enough exposure:

"Tools" at The Department on Dundas:

I could try, but it may be a better idea to let the show speak for itself:

"Well made tools have an efficient beauty to those who know how to use them. They empower and allow functions to be carried out. Tools can be culturally specific, and even descriptive of lifestyle, values, and skills. Tools evolve, change, and update; some tools fall into obsolescence, while others function until physical failure and wear by use."

This stuff has to be shown somewhere else, so if I find out, I'll post it here.
