Now in its second incarnation, Generation Art begins as a design contest, calling on artists of all ages from across Canada to submit artwork fitting a particular theme. Winning pieces are selected and adapted for the Generation Art product line, which is produced by and sold exclusively at EQ3.

 

EQ3 is proud to announce Generation Art is now available in-store and online across Canada. From ottomans, to beanbags, to napkins, to ceramics, the 2014 Generation Art Collection is filled with gifts that give back this holiday season. All proceeds raised from the sale of the collection will go to support underprivileged youth in the arts via the Michaëlle Jean Foundation.

Ceramic Mug $6.99 & Platter $19.99

Four mugs and one serving platter were created amongst the winning designs. The variety of pattern and colour options allow for easy integration into any kitchen setting.

 

A few months ago we shared photos from the Generation Art preview event held at EQ3’s Canadian flagship location in Toronto. We had the opportunity to fly all seven winning artists to Toronto for the event. You can read that post here. What an amazing experience it was to witness all the artists together, experiencing their original art in a new way.

Feeling stumped on what to get that last person on your list? Here’s our creative teams top picks for this holiday season!

 

Allison: Coast Marble Cheese Board

My pick is the Coast Marble Cheese Board. It’s a classic design that fits any décor and at $19.99, it comes with an affordable price tag. It’s also super functional for holiday party season. The natural marble keeps cheese cool.

Heather: Gusto Tea Light Holder

It’s the perfect accessory to cozy-up a small space on a chilly December evening.

Ben: Sagaform Luva Shot Glasses

These playful red shot glasses on wooden bases are a bold combination of materials, and add a festive touch to holiday cheers.

Nina: Spot Wall Knobs

The Spot Wall Knobs are a super fun way to add both colour and function to a space. The brand new Spot Wall Knob in white marble offers a more sophisticated look but still pairs well with the bright colours.

Alex: Marimekko Hauki Oven Mitten

I may not be able to pronounce the name but I love this oven mitt. The illustration reminds me of the late/great Charley Harper’s wildlife illustrations.

Paul: Kaleb Task Lamp

If you know anybody who has ever worked at a desk, then this is the gift for them.

Thom: Alessi Todo Cheese Grater

The Todo Giant Grater by Richard Sapper is a clever take on a typically dull kitchen utensil. The atypical height of the cheese grater was inspired by Sapper’s experience at home – grating cheese for his family’s dishes – measuring the length of one stroke along a grater, to satisfy one proper serving. I’ve never thought twice about a cheese grater until coming across this one. The Todo is an ideal holiday gift for those who admire thoughtful, functional goods for their kitchen.

Madi: Klere End Table

Although I did design this piece, I have an altruistic appreciation for its functionality and “cool girl” aesthetic. I would love to wrap her up under the tree so that all my friends and family would have the perfect place to stash their books + magazines this holiday season.

Enri: Alessi Juicy Salif Citrus Squeezer

Three reasons: it works; it is easy to clean unlike most lemon juicers, and it is a beautiful object in your kitchen.

PLAYLIST 11.28.2014

 

Black Friday – a relatively new consumer based holiday for us Canadians – has come to represent for most, a loathsome display of consumerism, and for some, a really fun day at the mall.

This eclectic mix of tracks transcends genres and decades and has just enough to build you up and bring you back down gently. One thing you won’t need to stress about is what you’re listening to.
