Description

Borrowing the Tahitian name for the breadfruit tree, the Ulu Pendant Light's motif mimics the plant's lovely bold leaves. Seagoing adventurer and designer David Trubridge fashions an elongated drum shade in bamboo plywood to give the patterning an eye-catching expanse. In natural, caramel or black, the light is flat-packed for eco-friendly freighting and packaging.

David Trubridge

“I design to communicate, to tell a story,” says the designer David Trubridge, “to relate what I find in the mountains and wilderness and what it is to be human.” Originally trained in boat design, David taught himself how to make furniture and his early work was widely heralded in his native UK. Turning a page in the early 1980s, he and his young family sold everything they had and set sail on their yacht “Hornpipe” around the Caribbean and the Pacific, while he built houses for clients living on nearby islands.

Arriving in New Zealand a few years later, David began to create furnishings inspired by his time at sea and eventually expanded to include his distinctive lighting, becoming an influential presence in the design world. An environmental sensibility governs his operation there, including recycling factory and studio waste, exclusive use of hydro electricity and eco-supportive shipping and freighting. As David puts it, “If design is not actively trying to preserve our future it is, by default, destroying it."
