Two related exhibitions at Toronto’s Harbourfront Centre highlight quotidian domestic necessities like plates, jars, lamps, and chairs transformed into sculptural yet still functional pieces. Nouvelle Vague: The New French Domestic Landscape relates the incredible recent outpouring of furniture and product designers that France has seen in the past several years. Five relatively new designers on the scene were chosen to display their prototypes or small-batch production works for this exhibit.

Homecus Domesticus looks exclusively at glass designers who create elegant, whimsical, and innovative pieces for use in the home. By exploring the properties of one material, these artisans can play with color, texture, and form to produce unique objects worthy of display and also useful for storage or serving.

Both shows remain open through Dec. 23.
