Allusions: An approach to history, context and craft


As part of the 2024 DesignTO Festival, join a discussion with Toronto-based design studio, Odami. The duo will discuss their design sensibilities, focus of their practice, and inspiration behind Aesop Yorkville. The event will take place January 25th from 6pm – 9pm at Aesop Yorkville, 94 Cumberland Street.

Odami is an architectural and interior design studio, founded in 2017 by Spanish architect Aránzazu González Bernardo (B.Sc.Arch, M.Arch: ETSAC, A Coruña, Spain; BCIN) and Canadian designer Michael Fohring (B.Sc.Arch, M.Arch: McGill University, Canada).

Aesop Yorkville takes inspiration from the downtown area’s architectural and societal history—starting with the Victorian houses that populate the neighbourhood, and the lanes and squares where communities have gathered over the decades.
