Creating Engagement: Mason Studio cover feature in May/June 2023 Canadian Interiors Magazine
Community is an integral element to the method, process and ethos of Mason Studio. We are honoured to be featured on the cover of the May/June 2023 issue of Canadian Interiors Magazine. The piece captures an in-depth look at our hybrid studio as a case study and active experimental lab to reframe what an interior design office might look and act like: no longer just a place for work, but rather a space for conversation and discourse, a space for inspiration and rejuvenation, and a space to get involved, gather and share knowledge.
Titled Creating Engagement, the feature profiles Mason Studio through a conversation with founding partners, Stanley Sun and Ashley Rumsey. The piece explore why a community-focused approach is the key element in building and designing the workplace of the future, and how a human-centric working space can help foster innovative thinking and experimentation, encourage an exchange of ideas from within and outside the community, and be the place that people want to come to.
"Engagement and collaboration with industry and community members whose vision and mission align can be a powerful instrument for achieving shared goals, creating a more effective force for change, and making a meaningful impact in the world," says Ashley Rumsey and Stanley Sun.
Canadian Interiors delves into Mason Studio's evolution and intentions for the future. Mason Studio houses The Gallery at Mason Studio - a cultural and creative hub for artists - designers, and makers - a community library, fabrication lab, educational and gathering place to create opportunities for emerging talent and established professionals from the design industry and beyond.
