Bio/Research

Tim Antoniuk is an Associate Professor in Industrial Design. After studying business, sculpture and industrial design, Tim went on to co-found Hothouse (1992), a furniture design, manufacturing and retail group of companies that sold its products to hundreds of retail galleries around the world. Now a regular presenter/exhibitor at international design conferences and exhibitions on ideas that surround sustainable-desire, the emergence of a new design-based economy ('creative-economic-emergence'), and practice-based design research models, Professor Antoniuk continues to pursue new methods for creating sustainable and economically viable product-service-system-experiences. Since his move into academia, Tim has been the Principal Investigator on two major grants: an SSHRC Fine Arts Research Creation Grant (2005), and more recently, a Killam Cornerstone Grant (2009). Throughout this latter grant, titled Luxury of the North, he has been working with Droog/Renny Ramakers, Winy Maas/Delft University, and a collection of designers/researchers from across Canada and Holland on how Northern Canadian aesthetics, images, and cultural rituals could positively influence the development of future (sustainable) luxury products.
