Design Exchange Teams Up with Pharrell Williams for New Exhibit!

Grammy Award winning musician and fashion designer, Pharrell Williams, has joined forces with Toronto's Design Exchange to bring a new art project to the city in February 2014.  The exhibit, titled This Is Not a Toy, will feature vinyl designer toys which, it turns out, Williams is obsessed with.

An example of vinyl toys

The project will feature urban vinyl toys that "are not meant to be played with".  Instead, the installations challenge expectations and explore the line between commercialism and contemporary art.  It will feature works by KAWS, FriendsWithYou, and more.
