Cabin Designs: Too Cool For Canada?

One of our favourite Canadian design collectives is the aptly named "Cabin Group" from Motherbrand.

Using the tag-line of "The Cabin Project: Canadian Designers Re-Imagine The Myth Of The Cabin," their web site offers examples of some of the most beautiful, well, call it Canadiana if you must, design objects around. They even have a manifesto of sorts:
The cabin speaks to the particularly Canadian mythology of wilderness. Occupying a unique space between imagined reality and lived reality, it remains one of our most enduring icons. The cabin project invites Canadian designers to re-imagine this myth.

We can't begin to cover all of their products here, but take a moment to visit the Cabin Group web site. It is worth it. Imagine a Algonquin canoe trip compressed into five minutes. You get the idea.
