Cum sociis natoque penatibus et magnis

    The best products in the world are different. They have a soul, a presence, a voice that speaks to us all. They have that inner quality that only the best art does, of raising our spirits and our heads, of making us feel better people.

    Our mission, as designers, is to find that voice in all of our designs, to enable our pieces to speak for itself, and to inspire people to use, love, and touch it every day.

    Di Tao and Bob Dodd founded Objects & Ideas as a Canadian design practice in 2015 in order to pursue that vision of a transformative design process, one that could turn their unique ideas and concepts for furniture and lighting into objects of desire.
