Sail Fabric Lampshades
Designers at Large has produced a limited edition of 75 ‘Listen Closely’ lamp shades made from the legacy sails fabric from Canada Place.
Designed by Kevin Wharton, the title of the project is meant to encourage us to stop and reconsider the people and objects we encounter in our daily lives. Only when we Listen Closely can we truly appreciate the potential of our surroundings.
Dream Big School
The Dream Big School is located in Fumagila Village, 16km from Mwanza City, Tanzania, Africa. Following the Canada Place sail restoration in 2010, material was salvaged and donated to the organizers to be re-used as a building material.
