As written on the Umbra website:

Design is everything to us and this year we're celebrating Canadian design with an organization that has grown to be a leading platform for independent designers in our city - Toronto Design Offsite (TO DO). During Toronto Design Week, TO DO held their offsite festival and turned the city of Toronto into a hub for design. 

The exhibition responds to half of the world’s population now living in urban centres where real estate is expensive and space is hard to come by. In Toronto alone, average condo sizes have shrunk by over 100 square feet over the last ten years. This has resulted in a trend towards making small spaces more livable and efficient. We need objects that make compact living exceptional.
