Launch of the first day to Buy Montréal Design with CODE SOUVENIR MONTRÉAL!
The Bureau du design is celebrating the city’s designers with the launch of the first day to Buy Montréal Design with CODE Souvenir Montréal!, happening on May 6 at the SIDIM-Salon du Design, at five points of sale in Montréal, and on Facebook. This unifying event is a fantastic opportunity for all Montrealers to support local design by purchasing a product emblematic of the city’s DNA. All of the items that will be available on Buy Montréal Design Day are creations of designers showcased in the Bureau du design’s catalogue of “so Montréal” souvenir items, CODE SOUVENIR MONTRÉAL.
On May 6, buy local and encourage Montréal designers
On May 6, Buy Montréal Design with CODE Souvenir Montréal! day, design mavens and curious consumers alike are encouraged to purchase CODE products at one of five public points of sale in Montréal:
- the three Space for Life gift shops (at the Botanical Garden, Biodôme and Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium*),
- the M Boutique and Bookstore at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts,
- and Pépin Shop.
In addition, throughout the day, every CODE product on sale at these five points of sale will be available at a 10% discount.
Design aficionados will also be able to buy these products during the SIDIM-Salon du Design at Place Bonaventure, at the Le Marché themed space, an area for the general public where visitors to the show will have the chance to meet and talk with more than 10 Montréal designers and publishers, and enter a photo contest to show off their discoveries.
