Design by David Trubridge Design.
There is a Maori creation myth in which the gods gave to humans three baskets containing the knowledge they needed to live on Earth. They hold the knowledge of the natural world (Kete Arounui), the spiritual world (Kete Tuaatea), and our rational world (Kete Tuauri). The knowledge needs to be in balance for us to live harmoniously on Earth.
Inspired by this story, The Basket of Knowledge - Kete Tuaatea features a hand-sanded polycarbonate basket and shroud that houses an energy efficient and long lasting LED spot light. These large scale, functional statement pieces were launched at Milan design week in 2009.

David Trubridge is a visionary. Unlike most of us he can translate those visions into something functional
David's sculptural wooden furniture and lighting is a new world mix of old world skills and craftmanship, sustainability of materials and purity combined with some high-tech genius. All of David's pieces are immediately evident in their purpose, but within the seeming economy of material and fluid shapes resides their true functionality.
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.See other lights/products from David Trubridge
