Trubridge- Kina Pendant Light

Trubridge- Hinaki Pendant Light

$304.00

Hinaki could be classed as David's first exploration into lighting. In 1995 he made a prototype based on fish traps which are called hinaki by Maori, though often the name is used specifically for an eel trap. They were made from woven vines, some in amazingly beautiful forms. He set it aside for many years, only to develop it later (2011) after Coral had gained international attention.

Trubridge- Navicula

The thin curved pieces of CNC-cut bamboo plywood create a flowing structure that also casts magical patterns. It is lit from within with a row of LED pin-point lights.

It was first shown at the Milan design fair as part of the full installation (including Wing lights) was later purchased by the Pompidou Centre in Paris for its permanent collection.

Trubridge- Nikau Pendant Light

Nikau is the only indigenous palm tree in New Zealand, named apparently because unlike the coconut palm familiar to Polynesians, it has no nuts. The fronds from the palm were traditionally used for thatching and weaving. It has a large bulb at the top of its trunk and its leaves overlap in the criss-cross patterns which inspired this light.

Trubridge- Flax Pendant Light

$940.00

Flax is based on the long slender leaves of the indigenous flax plant or harakeke in Maori. It has long been grown for its valuable fibre. There is a Maori proverb about preserving important resources: If you cut the central stalk of the flax bush, where will the bellbird feed? Maori would only take some of the outer leaves to ensure an ongoing supply.
