The companion book to the feature exhibition Canadian Modern: Design from the Royal Ontario Museum.  

Canada’s modern design and craft movement has been a dynamic part of the country’s narrative, from the early 20th century right up to today. The Blackberry smartphone, Project G stereo, John Fluevog shoe, and the Canadian maple leaf flag—all represent Canadian design that grew out of the technological advances of the Second World War, consumer demand for new products, national desire to join the world stage, and the cultural and social movements that defined the last half of the twentieth century.

Canadian Modern features objects from ROM’s permanent collection that tell the story of the birth and evolution of popular and artistic design and craft in Canada across ceramics, fashion, furniture, jewelry, metal work, and textiles. The Museum’s rich collection illustrates Canadian innovation and entrepreneurship, and how Canadian designers and craft makers continue to innovate and inspire both domestically and abroad.

This publication pays tribute to the designers, artisans, craft makers, manufacturers, and business leaders who share a strong entrepreneurial spirit and passion, not to mention an eye, for design.
