First piece from the new series exploring silk screening, fiber optics and light-sculpting.
The text-based installation was conceived by the Toronto based collective Blue Republic and commissioned by Luminato. The spaces of Brookfield Place Galleria and departure areas of the Pearson Airport were transformed when large scale text was installed on the walls and floors of these spaces. As a result the architectural elements were re-imagined as text paintings and mazes. Kira worked closely with the team of producers and artists to realize the project into life.
Air Pressure was a multiple location art installation that was commissioned to celebrate Earth Week 2012. This kinetic installation consisted of 200 inflatable bird sculptures. Each individual sculpture was gently inflated and deflated by an attached fan, making the winds flap up and down in a rhythmic animation. We were part of a talented team of producers and artists under the guidance of Studio F Minus. More about the project on Studio F Minus website.
The Bride is a part of a collection of fiber optic sculptures which investigates various representations of the human body and inventively readapts optical fiber into an art medium.
An image is created by manipulating a glowing optical cable and by “drawing” with three-dimensional loops. However, in order to fully comprehend and recognize it one has to stand “face to face” to the piece since the outlines change as one moves around the sculpture.
Studio 1:1 paired with the Eclectic Revival to create a reflective window installation. "Deflect" not only compliments the shop’s extraordinary collection of lighting fixtures but also brings a new magical dimension to the store’s window.

It only took 5000 meters of fiber optic cable and a lot of patience to complete this interactive yet sculptural piece. In the end it all came together into a playful and responsive organism which was enjoyed by people and children alike. Thank you all for your support and check our project for more info.

Architecture in Development
Several design projects have been maturing in our minds. These residential projects are creative experiments in working with different styles, scales and... national peculiarities. We'll keep updating to show development and progress of these designs.
Interior design of a typical North York kitchen is transformed by a combination of an over-the-counter cabinetry with bold lines of custom made wood.

The Russian Villa
The interior of the Russian villa is done in a French Provence style where predominant glow of wood and stone is complimented by soft lines of furniture. Eclectic collection of furnishings, antiques and fixtures creates the warmth of the French countryside.
