Giles Runeckles @ First Pick
i. Your Name: Giles Runeckles & ZOOHAUS
ii. I am a: Cross-disciplinary Designer Maker Shaper of Things.
Shaping of things is a way to encapsulate where my interests, passions and expertise have led me. Initially I began my design inquiry in Graphic Design & Communication. This in turn naturally progressed with Exhibition & Interior Design integration, which then insisted that fixtures, furnishings and materials be explored. And as one can see, it really does become a never-ending space of inquiry. I work within these connected spaces and I firmly believe that each area of inquiry helps illustrate and illuminate the other.
iii. Show dates + location:
I’m thrilled to be participating at the First Pick Handmade Winter Pop-Up at Heritage Hall in Vancouver on Dec 10th & 11th. located at 3102 Main Street in Vancouver.

I enjoy meeting people, showcasing my ideas to individuals who might otherwise not know my work, and in the cultivation of the fertile ground that exists between people, design, and the world at large.
vi. Something I learned about myself in creating this work is:
Patience, flexibility and conviction.

Through these challenging past several years, it’s always been the people, the relations, the work & support.
viii. After this show, I’m looking forward to:
A good meal with friends, some dance, and then on with the many projects both in the studio and in my brain.
