JOIN US THIS EVENING: FROM 5-8 PM
Toronto Offsite Design Festival Launch:
Limited Edition Pendant Lamps by SUMO Project
Please Join us for the launch of “Leonia” luminaire
as part of Toronto Design Offsite Festival (TO DO) 2016.
The Toronto Design Offsite Festival (Jan 18-24) takes
design out of the studio and into the city, transforming
the city’s downtown into a hub for all things design.
The name “Leonia” was inspired by one of the Invisible Cities
from Italo Calvino’s celebrated eponymous novel. Leonia’s
inspiration comes from the desire to give disposable beer
kegs a second life as luminaires for a microbrewery.
“Leonia” is an ode (and a warning) to habitat destruction,
climate change, and the destruction caused by economic
pressure and greed. It’s a call for change, for mutualistic
interactions that results in respect for the earth and each other.
Reception: Thursday, Jan 21, 2016 | 5-8pm
