David Trubridge is a visionary. Unlike most of us he can translate those visions into something functional. David's wooden lighting is a new world mix of old world skills and craftsmanship, sustainability of materials and purity combined with some high-tech genius.
All of David's pieces are immediately evident as to their purpose, but within the seeming economy of material and fluid shapes resides their true functionality. David's Coral and Floral Lamp series combines repeat patterned CNC cut plywood with a hint of Escher to produce a geometrically pleasing form, both pure in design and practical in purpose.
