Last night, 500 guests gathered at ACAD to celebrate design and the designers whose chops are putting Calgary on the map. Dinner x Design came to town this week, giving 9 designers/agencies the chance to create unique table-scapes that demonstrate their creativity and personality. The event concludes this evening with a special dining event that invites guests to enjoy the tables and a meal with the people who created it. Funds raised will support Contemporary Calgary and ACAD.
Present at the event were:
- Alykhan Velji Design
- ID Bohemia
- WW Design Studio
- Sarah Ward Interiors
- e=mc2 events
- LeAnne Bunnell Interioros
- Nyla Free Designs
- Corea Satropa Designs
- Amanda Hamilton Design
- Rochelle Cote Design
There were also drinks and treats throughout the event, and lots of fashionable friends! A warm room filled with eye candy.
Spoke with one designer who said that they approached this event with complete freedom creatively. She said she took the opportunity to create something just for them – no clients or briefs or restrictions. We loved that. How rare is it to be given a stage to express whatever story it is you want to tell to room full of people who want to listen. Bravo!
Tonight, Boom’s Derek Macdonald will join Amanda Hamilton (Amanda Hamilton Design) at her table – a modern, Calgary-centric souk – to take part in a discussion the love affair between art, design, and events, as well as talk about Contemporary Calgary and the exciting projects that lie ahead for the organization. Thank you to Amanda for inviting us to be a part of the evening!

Japanese tatami room with modern furnitures. A cross over of Japan-Western culture. The genius part is the selection of Miyasaki film playing on the wall.
