The Warburg House is built on a wooded Canadian farmstead and was created with the brief of energy efficiency and a budget of under $100,000. Designers Bioi created an iconic “house-shaped” form and put it on a platform 200mm off the ground.
Situated in Nanaimo, a harbour town renowned for its wood products, is the Nanaimo Cruise ship terminal building. The cruise ship terminal houses the Canadian Border Services Agency and the offices for Nanaimo Port Authority.

Located in the beautiful region of Cap-à-l’Aigle in Charlevoix, Quebec, Canada, is the Malbaie V Residence.

The residence was extensively thought out by the designers, the orientation was chosen to allow the maximum amount of natural light inside, the materials used were chosen because of their degree of sustainability and a garden of plants local to the area was put onto the roof.
The Magic Chair is really three chairs and an ottoman, or four chairs, as well as a single chair, it is now available in a limited edition chrome as well as the original, Grade A Maple wood above. With design links to Australia and the Netherlands, and after being built in Canada, the Magic Chair fits into itself when you are alone and want to save space or can be taken apart when a group of friends shows up. Designed by Dripta Roy, co-founder of Puur the design studio, the Magic Chair has taken the Matroyshka theory and translated it to a chair that eliminates unwanted furniture in a world where space is at a premium. Unfortunately at the moment, the chair is only available through pre-order and only to European customers.
