The Design Agency presents the MCLV Lounge at IDS13. This Canadian-themed lounge will resemble a deconstructed cottage. Made with EVOKE Vinyl flooring in a manner that will be very unconventional, and paired with new and exciting Molson Canadian beer cocktails, the MCLV Lounge is sure to capture the essence of the Canadian cottage. Throughout the duration of IDS, the MCLV Lounge will feature a multimedia experience and great DJs to create the perfect vibe – an experience not to be missed.
