Movers and shak­ers

Azure - - Boldface -

Big changes are afoot for Toronto’s ar­chi­tec­ture and de­sign trade show lineup. In­forma an­nounced that it will re­struc­ture some of its most es­tab­lished as­sets, re­brand­ing IIDEXCANADA as IDS Con­tract, a new an­nex to the In­te­rior De­sign Show, be­gin­ning in 2019. The reimag­ined show will in­clude a more cu­rated se­lec­tion of con­tract ex­hibitors from all sec­tors. IIDEX marked its 30th an­niver­sary, in 2014, by form­ing the Build­ings Show with Con­struct Canada. The repo­si­tion­ing will al­low STONEX to join next De­cem­ber’s Build­ings Show and will pro­vide space for other sec­tions to ex­pand. Mu­uto, the young fur­ni­ture and ac­ces­sories brand based in Copen­hagen, has been pur­chased by one of Amer­i­cas’ top de­sign com­pa­nies. Knoll an­nounced in mid-de­cem­ber that it had ac­quired Mu­uto for ap­prox­i­mately US$300 mil­lion. An­drew Co­gan, Knoll Pres­i­dent and CEO, says that the Scan­di­na­vian brand’s af­ford­able lux­ury prod­ucts and “res­imer­cial” fo­cus are a per­fect com­ple­ment to Knoll’s own range of mod­ern de­signs.
