THE GRAY STAGE
For the past three years, the GRAY Stage has been a platform for design talk from some of North America’s top interior designers and architects. Designing the dramatic backdrop to our programming this year is freshly minted Studio Roslyn, made up of Vancouver, B.C.-based duo Kate Snyder and Jessica MacDonald. The team at British Columbia Timberframe Co. in Squamish, B.C., rose to the challenge to construct the GRAY Stage and greenroom, adding their pre-fab know-how to the mix. GRAY also brings back the popular “secret” greenroom behind the stage, decked out with DWR Contract and Herman Miller furnishings! Stage furniture and audience seating will also be provided by DWR Contract.
Studio Roslyn specializes in developing design solutions for the built environment that are integral to the success of their client’s businesses. “Put simply, we believe that creativity is not in conflict with commerce. Our work crosses the boundaries between art and design, fashion, and architecture—while keeping a sense of vivacity throughout.”

GRAY STAGE HEADLINERS
LOCAL TO GLOBAL: GLENN LAWSON & GRANT FENNING
FRIDAY, SEP. 29, 2:30PM-3:30PM
Glenn Lawson and Grant Fenning, founders of celebrated L.A.-based design firm, Lawson-Fenning, share how they grew a local store they once ran as design students into a global design brand, revered far beyond their West-Coast roots. With a core influence of California midcentury modern, their contemporary furniture designs and interiors have been widely lauded in the design community, including features in Elle Décor, Domino, and Dwell.
In a conversation with GRAY, Lawson and Fenning will discuss the authenticity of celebrating one’s own city, and how it led them to being recognized on a world design stage.
