Koura Pendant, NaturalPrice: $510.00
Made in New Zealand, by David Trubridge Design.
Koura Pendants were inspired by the woven baskets that the Maori used to catch fresh water shrimp in New Zealand rivers. "Koura", the Maori word for shrimp, give this pendant its relevant name. Made from bamboo plywood with a natural finish, Koura Natural offers a beautiful net shaped shade in a sustainable material with pure and honest qualities. Using timber from sustainably managed plantations, all pieces are designed to use the minimum amount of material for the maximum amount of effect. Koura'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. 12" and 19.5" models ship flat packed with excellent instructions for self-assembly.
Select from four sizes. All sizes ship with 6 feet of wire and a canopy.
