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 is a cafÃ© installation created by TUG and curated by MADE.
