Educated in boat design but self-taught in furniture design, David Trubridge traveled the world by yacht and found inspiration for his line of eco-friendly lighting and furniture. David Trubridge light fixtures are constructed from the most sustainable timber, plywood and plastic available, and only non-toxic, organic oil finishes are used. The geometric patterns used in David Trubridge chandeliers and pendants come from shapes found in nature, like coral reefs, sea urchins and snowflakes. Their unexpected patterns and use of color are a refreshing take on the modern lighting we know today.
