DECORATIVE ARTS & DESIGN IN CANADA
Ornamentum magazine is a publication of the Canadian Society of Decorative Arts/Cercle canadien des arts décoratifs (CSDA/CCAD). Ornamentum is the only magazine dedicated to design and decorative arts in Canada.
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.
