imm Living is hosting Not Forkchops at Loop Galley, from January 23-27. Unlike other shows, the attendees hold the fate of the designers in their hands. Stop by, place your vote and be part of history.

With a successful debut show during the 2012 Design Week, imm Living’s Not Forkchops is back! Not Forkchopsencompasses the idea that we live in a country where worlds have collided, cultures of all kinds (not just ethnic based cultures) have merged, borrowing ideas from one, and adapting from another. Not Forkchops will give Canadian artists and designers the opportunity to showcase how the idea of cultural adaptation and adoption has influenced the work they produce, in a way that is elegant, contemporary and unique.
Unlike many other shows, where the attendees are simply there to observe, Not Forkchops will require the active participation of the individuals in attendance. They hold the fate of the designers in their hands. Each designer will be appointed a specific colour sticky note. Voters will get to place their favourite designer's coloured sticky note on a blank wall, creating a dynamic, ever changing piece within the space. The designer with the most votes will have the opportunity to collaborate with imm Living and work on a project that may see their product(s) sold on a global scale. NotForkchops will run from January 23, 2013 - January 27, 2013 at Loop Galley. Stop in and place your vote!
Designers: Rob Southcott, Maiwenn Costallan, Alexx Boisjoli, Zoe Mowat, Kristen Lim Tung, Jessica Nakanishi, Connie Tong, Lana Filiponne
