We transported the bench to the Vancouver trade and convention centre on a flat deck truck with a Hiab hoist.
While there the bench enjoyed a really good reception. During the entire trade show, there was always someone sitting on it, Using their phone or drinking a coffee, just taking a break from the rest of the show.
We made a few really good contacts with architects and interior designers. Some expressed interest in buying one or two or three, others gave us some tips on who to talk to about getting this bench where it belongs, in large scale, public spaces.
All in all, it was a great experience and we look forward to where this is going to go.
The next steps for the ONE6 are entering it into the Core77 design awards, moving the bench to it's next home at #1 Noodle House on Cordova and Carrall, and then to the IDSWest trade show for 4 days in September.
