Baskets of Light
First designs of David Trubridge
The early work from David Trubridge came to prominence in 2001 when the Italian design company Cappellini bought the rights for the design classic Body Raft. In 2003 that was followed by the Coral light establishing a blueprint for the present kit set collection which minimised the environmental footprint. Later models like Floral, Kina and Koura were very successful. Several designs were selected in the collections of international museums or got price winning awards worldwide, like model Nikau a Red Dot winner. The Icarus installation, which was presented on the fair in Milano has been included in the permanent collection of the Centre Pompidou in Paris.
His latest designs also in bigger sizes up to 2500 mm Navicula and Maru had a very good reception from the interior architects and will soon be installed in stunning interiors in contract surroundings and private homes.
