Winnipeg Team Attends Storefront Manitoba's Annual Table for 1200 Fundraiser

Storefront Manitoba is a charitable organization dedicated to promoting, exploring, and celebrating the design culture in Manitoba. Their mission is to raise awareness and appreciation of design and the built environment in Manitoba through public education. They achieve this by facilitating the exchange of knowledge through research, publications, and a diverse range of programming, including activities, tours, exhibitions, lectures, and events. By fostering critical discussions, exploration, and celebration of architecture, design, planning, and the urban environment, Storefront Manitoba aims to enhance the quality of design in Manitoba's built environment.

One of Storefront Manitoba's annual fundraisers is the Table For 1200 event, a captivating 'pop-up' outdoor dining experience that brings together architecture, design, and the culinary arts. This event provides a unique setting for entertainment and stimulating conversations while raising awareness about the value of architecture, design, and urbanism. Through Table For 1200 and other initiatives, Storefront Manitoba seeks to inspire and benefit the community by showcasing design ideas that transform shared spaces.

Every year, our Winnipeg team sponsors and attends this exceptional event in support of Storefront Manitoba. The organization's invaluable work helps promote architectural, interior design, and landscape design projects throughout Manitoba, encouraging local professionals to contribute their thoughts, ideas, and designs to enhance the province's built environment.

This past Saturday, our team in attendance included our members of our Interior Design, Landscape Architecture and Architecture teams from our Winnipeg office. Claudia Zhang and Yin Zheng took the lead on designing a custom centrepice for the A49 table. The captivating centrepiece embodied A49’s design philosophy. The stunning booklet design showcases photographs of our remarkable A49 interior design, landscape architecture, and architectural projects. What made this booklet truly special was its construction from a unique blend of epoxy resin and natural materials, seamlessly merging nature with the artificial. In a symbolic gesture, the team substituted artificial elements within the designs with delicate leaves and petals collected from the surrounding environment. These organic materials were meticulously preserved within the translucent resin, serving as a testament to our commitment to preserving the intrinsic beauty of nature.
