The anchor of Design Week is the Interior Design Show, where the most (in fact only) interesting “concept space” was Jason MacIsaac‘s Rolling Hills. Sabine at Mocoloco writes:

Three conical structures of different heights are connected by a passageway. They are open at the top, which further heightens the feeling of floating, yet being quite grounded. Different hard woods have been used, and it is difficult to keep from touching the surface.

I was preoccupied with student work, some of which I found to be the highlights of the show, like this flatpack chair held together by rope, made by Nita Chakravarty of OCAD. More at Student Work Steals the Show. There was also Studio North, that had a lot of good new upcoming designers to watch. More at IDS10: the Young Creatives.

Designboom got some great posts up from the show:

Christian Giroux and Daniel Young: Andersson
Bruno Billio: Vegetal Sociale

I must confess that I did not make it to Come Up To My Room at the Gladstone Hotel, always one of the most interesting events. But Harry at Mocoloco did, and you can see his coverage here.
