Running until January 27, bulthaup Toronto and Luvere Studio present “Light Cage Duo” as part of the annual DesignTO Festival. Luvere Studio created the unique two-part installation for kitchen and dining use, the third in a series of installations previously presented at Wanted Design Manhattan 2018 and Vancouver IDS 2018.
Light Cage Duo is a living lighting installation with live plants growing from the confines of a 4’ x 4’ structure of illuminated bars that is suspended from the ceiling above.
The plants continue to grow despite their capture in a “prison of light,” eventually engulfing and blackening out their source of confine and energy. As the plants endure and thrive, the installation becomes a symbol of hope for the environment and our planet.
Luvere Studio is a collaborative and innovative design duo working out of NY and Toronto, designing products and installations that are rooted in all things green. Their ethos is to bring a greater awareness to plants, nature and the living environment. Luvere Studio were also the winners of Wanted Design Manhattan Launchpad 2017 for lighting.
The “Light Cage Duo” exhibition is presented as part of the DesignTO Festival. DesignTO takes design out of the studio and into the city, transforming the urban sphere into a celebration for all things design.
Bringing together the worlds of art and interior design, this year’s DesignTO Festival runs across the city until January 27, offering over 100 events and installations. Make sure to check out our guide to the 2019 DesignTO festival at this link.
