Lawrence Blairs is owner and curator of Atomic Design. A qualified gemmologist and appraiser, he is a fellow of The Gemmological Association of Great Britain and of the National Association of Goldsmiths UK.
After more than a decade of involvement in the world of decorative art and jewellery, both in the United Kingdom and Canada, Lawrence made the decision to open an intimate boutique in the heart of Toronto´s Art+Design district to share his passion for twentieth century art and design.
An avid collector from the age of sixteen Lawrence is particularly excited by Scandinavian art glass, modernist studio jewellery, abstract sculpture, and post modern Italian design.
Atomic also houses an extensive reference library on twentieth century design and decorative art for research purposes, client education and general information.
