Description

It's a natural that David Trubridge would name his Pequod Pendant Light after the whaling ship in Herman Melville's novel Moby Dick. The ocean-sailing enthusiast and designer sees the rippling lines as reminiscent of waveforms—or maybe even the hair of a mermaid. Crafted in a natural bamboo plywood and hand-frosted polycarbonate, Pequod projects subtle wave patterns on its surroundings. Shipped 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."
