Design by David Trubridge Design.
The Flax Natural Pendant Light is a true-to-form David Trubridge design that was inspired by the flax bush, a plant indigenous to New Zealand grown for its valuable fiber. Flax Pendants are made from bamboo plywood, and feature a radial design comprised of many identical components. It ships flat packed with excellent instructions for self-assembly. Flax's material-minimizing design is carried through to its kitset packaging which means no excessively bulky boxes in shipping, plus it helps minimize the impact on the environment.
Select from two sizes. Both sizes include 6 feet of wire and canopy.
Bulbs: 1 X 100W 120V E26 (medium base) A19 incandescent lamp (not included)
Designer: David Trubridge
David Trubridge is a true visionary. His self named brand, David Trubridge Designs, features sculptural, and often wood based, lighting solutions that are a mix of old world skills and craftsmanship with some high-tech enginuity and sustainable practices. David's lamps combine repeat patterned CNC cut plywood with a hint of Escher to produce a geometrically pleasing form, both pure in design and practical in purpose. Early training in Naval Architecture prepared David well for computer 3D designing, enabling the company to integrate CNC technology and moving fluidly between design and production.
In addition to lighting design, David Trubridge is an achieved, self-taught designer of furniture. In 1972 he first graduated from Newcastle University in Northern England in 1972 with a degree in Naval Architecture (Boat Design), and has received many awards over the year for his contributions to design, including the Good Design Awards (NZ), the Best Awards (NZ), Home NZ Design Awards, the Silver Leaf Awards (Japan), Designboom / Sotheby's Awards (London), the UN / Natural World Warming awards and New Zealand's greatest prize for innovative design, the John Britten Award.View other products by David Trubridge
