Design by David Trubridge.
Made in New Zealand by David Trubridge.

Some of the best creative work results from a gradual progression of ideas. David's Manuka Light is an example of this. Inspired by his time tramping in the New Zealand bush, David developed a screen for his bach (cottage) in Mahanga based on leaf shapes. Amy Lynch, one of his designers, took the idea further and rearranged the shapes to create the delicate, five-pointed Manuka blossoms. The light itself was a natural progression of this screen. Manuka is a small tree indigenous to New Zealand with a tiny white flower.

Manuka's frame is made from sustainably sourced bamboo and the flowers are white polycarbonate. The flowers offer another dimension to these pendants, as their placement is perpendicular to the bamboo. Manuka is offered in two sizes. The smaller 800 size uses a single incandescent lamp. The larger 1110 is illuminated with 12 LEDs that are placed on the frame of the fixture itself. This allows for maximum shadow play. Ships assembled and include 6 feet of wire.
