"Literally resembling the squirrel. TETUPAI refers to a design component that is found in traditional vernacular houses. Though small in nature and deceptively insignificant in visual presence, it is a crucial component that connects, supports, and ensures the stability of the whole structure. This lounge is a tribute to everyone in USM. Your contribution no matter big or small, matters."
