Designers at Large has produced a limited edition of 75 ‘Listen | Closely’ lamp shades made from the legacy sails roof fabric from Vancouver's Canada Place.
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.

All proceeds from the sales will be donated to the HomeStart Foundation.

20 of the lamp shades were on display as part of the ReFab: Design for Sail exhibit at the 2011 IDSwest show.

The Listen | Closely lamp shade is a Teflon-coated, waterproof, fire-rated, composite material made of fibreglass and polytetrafluoroetheylene called Sheerfill II-HT.

Shades are provided with a CSA approved light fixture, including 15’ of cord and two hooks and clips for hanging. They are rated for indoor use only. The recommended light bulb is an 11W compact fluorescent.

The fixture can be retrofitted to fit a standard ceiling box, or fitted with a toggle switch and plugged into a standard outlet.

Designers at Large would like to thank the following companies who generously donated their services in the fabrication of the shades:

American Fabricators

Associated Plastics

Downtown Custom Metal Works

Viking Profiles
