Where: Toronto, ON
What: Designer / Artist
Sylvia Hoang is the maker behind Studio S, a Toronto-based brand which explores artistic items that serve a functional purpose as well. Her main medium used is concrete, drawing on her love for industrial materials. We've known Sylvia since her early days (and ours), watching her fanbase grow as she continues to drop amazing pieces for the home. We got the chance to speak with her about the beginnings of her journey which you can read here and whipped up something special for the grant project.
Why are you excited to be a part of the grant project?
I feel really honoured to have been asked to participate in the grant project. I still consider myself a very new creative. I think it's really important to amplify new creatives and create opportunities for those that don't have all of the needed resources and invest in them because it will help us go further as an entire community.
Can you tell us about the pieces that you've made for the grant?
For the Pier Five x Studio S collaboration we went with the Jordan 3 which is one of the most iconic silhouettes in sneakers and dyed the concrete green which is something that I've never done before. It was a really interesting experience and took a lot of trial and error but in the end, we came out with something very unique that will add a nice hit of colour to any room.
