SUGO founder Kevin Chu was born in Hong Kong; a fast paced and ever dynamic city in the heart of Asia. In Hong Kong people work and move in insane speed and urgency. Constant changes and transformation to life and the city’s skyline is an everyday occurrence. With this in mind METROPOLIS was created to celebrate and reflect the energy of a bustling city anywhere on the globe. Although inspired by Hong Kong, SUGO reinterpreted the “buildings” into the most abstract shape with the slanting geometry mimicking a 3 dimensional perspective of buildings as well as movement in architectural form. METROPOLIS has the ability to combine and layer its opaque acrylic panels freely and can recreate every cityscape on the planet. Just like GUILIN, it shares the same stainless steel base which allows for infinite combinations of “Mountains” or “Building” and one can even create an amazing glowing “Lampscape” when both are placed adjacent to each other. SUGO conceived both METROPOLIS and GUILIN as illumination sculptures that throws creativity back to you and no 2 Lampscape will ever be the same as we are all individuals with our own creative freedom of choice. Celebrate the progress and evolution of the city but beware of unyielding progress can also bring destruction and degradation to our planet and we need to treat technological advancement with a sense of environmental responsibility.
All SUGO lighting sculptures are integrated with the latest generation of Photocatalytic Environment Cleansing Technology that can permanently eliminate all strands of Corona Virus | 99.9% Bacteria | Industrial Pollutants activated only with natural light and circulating air. Our technology is all tested and certified in Italy and Thailand using our own Italian In-House Scientific Research Team and we are the world first company to employ this technology into groundbreaking artwork.
