Current Issue

MID-CENTURY

MODERN DESIGN

This issue of Ornamentum takes a look back at the design innovations and creative collaborations of the 1950s and 60s, an era that has been revitalized as a timeless classic.

The Mid-Century Modern Design issue features the nearly forgotten about Indigenous collective, the Micmac Indian Craftsman, alongside a look at Peter Cotton's pioneering furniture. Also inside, Rachel Gotlieb explores Thor Hansen's icon Canadian motifs and Jennifer Laurent recounts the assembly of the displays suits of Habitat 67.
