Made in New Zealand by David Trubridge Design.
"Nikau is the name of the only indigenous palm tree in New Zealand. It has a large bulb at the top of its trunk and its leaves overlap in similar patterns. It was traditionally used for thatching and weaving much like the coconut palm. But the early Maori arrivals were disappointed to see no coconuts on it, which is a possible source of the name: "No Nuts"." -David Trubridge. The Nikau Half Pendant was an evolution from the design of the Nikau Full Pendant. One day, as they were assembling the full-sized pendant they were about half way done and realized the shape would work very well in its own right and the Nikau Half is the result.
Nikau Half - Paint is made from sustainably sourced bamboo with interiors painted in a choice of 6 vibrant colors; the pendant can also be ordered with a white interior or white painted interior and exterior. Paint colors are water-based and low VOC. Provides direct and ambient illumination. The pendant is suspended from 6 feet of field cuttable white cord. Ships flat packed with excellent instructions for self-assembly. The kitset packaging helps minimize impact on the environment.

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
