600SQ

600SQ is a multidisciplinary design studio focusing on product design, fabrication and communication.

Our research and products began with how people in urban areas use furniture, what expectations they have for it, what’s their lifestyle and what kind of spaces they inhabit. The research gave us a better understanding of what kind of furniture is actually needed.

We believe design should solve problems and not create them. Focusing on human-centered approach, we research challenges of living in urban environments and design solutions around people and their needs. We are big on functionality, usability and sustainability of our products while using aesthetics as the unifying force.

Sé Collections

From 28 September – 1 October, Vancouver design gallery SwitzerCultCreative will present a selection of pieces from Sé Collection II by leading talent Jaime Hayon at the Interior Design Show (IDS) Vancouver. The Spanish-based artist and designer will also take to the show’s Caesarstone Stage on 29 September as a keynote speaker.

Sé’s Collection II has a celebratory air. The pieces are curvaceous, lithe and refined, and capture the sparkling Hayon spirit, as well as representing the maturity of Sé’s guiding principle: that from surface to structure, quality should be expressed throughout the entirety of furniture design.

Inspired by Hayon’s playful visual language, Sé invited him to create an entire collection. Hayon sought stimulation from two key sources: musical instruments and insects. After looking at strong curvilinear shapes – violins, flutes, beetles, the harp – Hayon sketched the Collection’s furniture forms, analysing them in terms of materials and the subsequent manufacturing process, then transformed them into this coherent family.

Shipway Living Design

At SHIPWAY Living Design, it’s more than designing objects and spaces, it’s about telling a story.

All of the wood we use comes from a sustainably-managed community forest on Cortes Island, BC, which enables us to have a very unique connection to the material, land, and people. This story becomes embedded in all the products we make and becomes a story for our clients to connect with and make their own. We have a strong commitment to using sustainably-sourced materials and products that have the highest level of environmental certifications. All finishes and glues are water and/or plant based to further our commitment to the environment.

This year at IDS Vancouver,  we will be launching a new line of tables featuring natural stone tops that are made from off-cuts from the production of countertops. We saw this as a great opportunity to divert this material from being discarded and upcycle it into products for the home. The natural stone is a great compliment to the natural wood we use.

After the great success of the “SOU’EASTER light wall” from last year’s IDS Vancouver, we will also be debuting a new lighting installation at this year’s show.

In addition to our product lines, we also take on custom design and build projects for clients that appreciate adding environmentally conscious pieces to their homes or establishments. We do everything from small custom tables and lighting to large scale sculptural installations. Please feel free to connect if you have any questions.
