who we are
wabi is a design collective composed of seven creative individuals with foundations in the training and practice of architecture, film/video, photography, sculpture, engineering, graphic design and music production.
we bring our training and talents to fruition through the creation of media and events for our clients and for ourselves.
wabi is justin, alex, alan, jin, sean, tom and arv.
what we do
in operating as a design studio, our working methods draw on the diversity of each individual's interests to create unique design solutions in the areas of interior architecture, web and graphic design, video, and photography.
some of our previous clients include: the design exchange, the mayworks festival, derivative inc, the ontario federation of labour, aria nightclub, fez batik, poundhouse, milk events, and the people have spoken.
collaborators: clonk, technot, the music gallery, labelled black, audi sensa, derivative, emerge entertainment, root mean square
the wabi event is where we, as designers, enjoy the freedom of full creative experimentation. each member contributes in multiple ways including designing the promotional motifs, producing works for projection, building installations and playing records.
the collaboration of innovative guest musicians and artists adds another layer of ideas to the evening. working together, we strive to create an environment out of space, sound and light that is always unique yet always imbued with the essence that is wabi.
