EXPO 67 COMMEMORATIVE CHARGER, 13"
The 1967 edition of the World's Fair held in Montreal, known as "Expo 67" was the fair's most successful version welcoming over 50 million visitors over the course of six months.
It remains one of the most important cultural events ever held in Canada and helped both Montreal and the nation assert its identity on the world's stage. The success of the fair led to Montreal hosting the 1976 summer Olympics.
Expo 67 is also notable for impressive contributions, including event specific commissions, in the realms of art, architecture and design.
Notably Moshie Safdie's Habitat 67 complex, Frei Otto's tent-like structure for the West German Pavilion and Buckminster Fuller's geodesic dome (the U.S. Pavilion)
Expo 67's iconic logo, depicted on this charger, was designed by Julien Hébert.
While most interpret the logo as representing trees or symbolizing harmony, it is actually composed with an ancient symbol of man. The pairs standing together were intended to depict international friendship.
