Beginning five days after Yom Kippur, the week-long Sukkot celebration, which began on October 2, commemorates the years that the Jewish people spent in the desert on their way to the Promised Land. Traditionally, the celebratory holiday is spent with family in a temporary structure called a "sukkah". The sukkah represents the shelters in which the Israelites lived during their forty years of wandering in the desert after escaping from slavery in Egypt. Today, many have taken to glamming up the sukkah to resemble a luxe dining pavilion for entertaining guests during this holiday.
In commemoration of this holiday, Ty Kuppig and his company TYGER | Event Design + Production designed a lavish autumn-inspired "sukkah" which elevates the traditional form and creates a luxurious, modern environment for entertaining and celebration of the holiday!
