On Friday, November 4, Museum of Vancouver (MOV) will host a stimulating night of inquiry focused on the creative process with its third annual Why I Design event, packing two dozen designers into museum spaces for drinks, demonstrations and discussion.
Why I Design offers people the opportunity to awaken their curiosity and learn about the city’s booming design community. Designers will discuss how they face challenges and change lives. They’ll reveal sources of inspiration as well as why they’re working in Vancouver.
Discover the stories behind the development of everyday technologies and new products alike.
ChopValue’s Felix Böck will present his innovative products made from recycled chopsticks while Hapa Landscape Architecture Collaborative will highlight some of Vancouver’s most exciting new building projects.
Visitors will get a first-hand look at VeloMetro’s fully-enclosed, electric assist cycles and can ask The Alinker how the three-wheeled walking bike keeps people active.
