Junction Design, Toronto
In the Junction, an emerging design neighborhood, Russet & Empire specializes in cheeky riffs on old-school Canadian icons. Porcelain cups from Toronto designer Rob Southcott (shown) stack to form a totem pole, while National Design Collective produces laser-cut coasters of Toronto’s street plan. You’ll also find nostalgic gear from Red Canoe, including bags featuring the retro logo of the Canadian Broadcasting Company. —Charlene Rooke
