Designers at Large has produced 75 limited edition ‘Listen | Closely’ lamp shades made with the legacy sails fabric from Canada Place. The title of the project is meant to encourage individuals to stop and reconsider the people and objects they encounter in their daily lives. “Only when we ‘Listen | Closely’ can we truly appreciate the potential of our surroundings,” note the designers. Each shade sold is provided with a CSA approved light fixture, including 15’ of cord and two hooks and clips for hanging. The lamp shades are available for $150 (cad), and all proceeds from the sales will be donated to the HomeStart Foundation.
