Mjölk (Milk) is pure, honest, and essential.
Located in the Junction, our gallery makes its home in a white Victorian building with a modern interior by local architect firm Studio Junction. Mjölk is both a gallery who exhibits work by both arists and artisans from Scandianvia and Japan, and also a lifestyle store; we look to our everyday life to find inspiration for the products we carry. Our smaller products can be used without thought, or quietly admired. In our eyes just the simple satisfaction of functionality and durability, is all you need for a successful product, but when you can derive beauty from the uttermost simplistic tools, then you have something special.
Mjölk’s collection is selected by owners John Baker and Juli Daoust.
Mjölk was started in 2009 by husband and wife team John and Juli Baker. Mjölk is a shop and gallery located in the Junction neighborhood of Toronto, and represents work with an emphasis on functionality, craftsmanship, and timelessness. Their gallery has been profiled by such international publications as Dwell, Monocle, and Metropolis.
Mjölk has worked on several product collaborations, including a tea set with Swedish architect firm Claesson Koivisto Rune, which was awarded best new product during the Interior Design Show 2013, and was later exhibited at the Canadian Embassy in Stockholm Sweden during the Formex fair.
As well as periodical exhibitions of artist from the likes of Oji Masanori, Masanobu Ando and George Nakashima at Mjölk. John and Juli Baker publish a series of books about travel, design, and craft, which is sold at select book stores around the world.
