TUG – Toronto Upcycling Group – is Kaveri Joseph, Christine Lieu, Jessica Ching, Carrie Liang and Heidi Mok. The team of industrial designers, collectors, makers, and self -proclaimed food and drink enthusiasts and ninjas designed a woven lighting structure and tapestry for CUTMR 2011. The structure which adorned the ceiling and walls of the Gladstone Cafe employed a non-linear weaving technique which created an airy mass, as light peaked through overlapping and open spaces.
TUG's woven lighting structure, Ray, employs a blend of non linear weaving techniques which create an airy mass, as light peaks through overlapping and open seams. TUG's inspiration arose from rays of sun through clouds on a fall afternoon.
Ray light installation created by TUG and curated by MADE Design.
