Here are the must-see's at the Festival Mode et Design de Montréal

LES BANCS PUBLICS
After installations in San Fran, Amsterdam, and Berlin, six artists are using Montreal's urban landscape by creating works of art using the city's public benches. A window to showcase our talent, it's a true vision of democratizing design to the masses as the creations are incorporated into the daily metropolitan life.
