Sustainable Art Forms

Designed by David Trubridge this picture depicts sustainable lighting called "Taniko Lights" which are made from natural bamboo plywood and nylon cable ties. The furniture on display is called "Cradle" and is constructed from bamboo plywood and plastic clips.

Designed for Milan Design Week 2008, these "Spiral Islands" are designed to look like puffy clouds that form over islands in the pacific. The lighting was designed to mirror the furniture which is made from the skin of two interlocking spirals.

"The Three Baskets of Knowledge." Designed as a lighting installation for Milan Design Week 2009, the title is based on the mythology of the New Zealand Maori.

Hanging in a darkened room and lit from the inside, the Coral Pendant light takes on the form of a magnificently delicate skeleton crafted by nature, floating mid-air like some kind of an exotic sea creature.

This lighting series, called "Volute," which means beautiful sea-shell, was shown at the Milan Furniture Fair in 2006. Made up of several pieces of thin cut plywood which was crafted through the use of a computer and a CNC router machine.

David Trubridge's light fixtures are shipped in a box unassembled to make shipping more efficient and to reduce waste. Instructions for simple assembly are included and no tools are required. Trubridge won the Natural World Museum’s 2007 Green Leaf Award for artistic excellence. The Green Leaf Award celebrates an artist's ability to inspire and engage the public in environmental awareness and action.
