To Do This Weekend: Perched Meet and Tweet with Vancouver Design Bureau


Inevitably, the familiar monochromatic and leaky skies of Vancouver have returned. Translation: Now is the time to seek out more indoor activities to keep your body and demeanor nice and warm.

Maai Living will be hosting a two hour respite via hot coffee, delicious baked treats and fresh design courtesy of the newly formed Vancouver Design Bureau. Perched Meet and Tweet is a rare chance to meet the designers behind the successful Perched Birdhouse Exhibition but in a more intimate setting.

Guests will be able to strike up conversations in person as well as tweet in questions and comments on Twitter using the following tags: #Perched13 and #MeetandTweet. Besides the networking opportunities this will also be a nice way to ensure you come home this holiday season a hero. All the limited edition pieces in the show are on sale at Maai Living until October 21st.

Here’s a taste of what you will see. Until then, stay dry my fine feathered friends.

Ryan Nussbacher Ryan Nussbacher was born in Toronto, Canada where he grew up, worked in advertising, and realized he hated it. The real story begins in 2006 after he moved to New York City and discovered Industrial Design. After almost three years Ryan moved once again to Vancouver, BC to complete his Design education at Emily Carr University where he discovered complete design. That is, approaching each project with a systems thinking approach in mind. Believing that it’s best to traverse life with an empty cup, Ryan is always learning and is dedicated to continuous improvement. His motto is: “All that is worth achieving is always preceded by toil. Be true to your work and your work will be true to you." When not in the studio you can find him popping up around the Vancouver Design scene as he does his best to spotlight brave entrepreneurs and inspiring events that help make the case for why the west is the new frontier for innovation.
