Douglas Coupland Interview: IDS2013

on January 26, 2013

Weekendtrips made the lengthy, arduous trek from our downtown Toronto office to the spacious confines of the convention centre to check out what was up with the Interior Design Show. We spoke to author, artist and now furniture designer Douglas Coupland about his new line with Vancouver furniture company Switzercultcreative; the key-piece of which is a playful, Bento-box inspired take on the antiquated escritoire of gilded studies of old. The soft-spoken author of Shampoo Planet, Microserfs, Girlfriend in a Coma (and countless other novels) was also gracious enough to play along when we quizzed about some iconic chairs. As well, you’ll catch some glimpses of the booths, people, and designs that go into making IDS such a destination.
