Over the next couple weeks we’ll be releasing photography of all the gorgeous objects designed by local architects, designers, craftspeople, PDA and community members.
The lamp in the foreground is called L.A.M.P and is designed by Alana Boychuk and Tristan Fuller of Boychuk+Fuller with assistance from Maxwell Lloyd & Byers-Bush. The lamp is made from powder-coated steel frame (reclaimed plant stand) and a paper shade.
Both objects were created for PDA for 40 Oaks.
The coffee table in the background is called Steelog and is designed by Cassandra Alves & Kara Logan of Karkas and is made of steel pipes & unidentified salvaged wood.

PDA creates community engaged design projects that improve the community. We do this by holding workshops with communities in need and teaching them how to make and remake things like furniture. Then we take these objects and we put them out into the communities they were made in. We also reach out to the design community and universities to produce objects as well.
