Inhabitat favorite David Trubridge strives to create low-impact designs that express what it means to be human. We've featured his stunning environmentally-friendly work in years past, and Trubridge just announced plans to launch a new line of jewelry, lighting, and furniture this week at Wanted Design 2014. Read on the a sneak peek!
Wanted Design promises to be an exciting event for David Trubridge, who will display plenty of new innovations. Trubridge’s new Adorn jewelry is modeled after some of his most popular lighting designs, which are works of art in themselves. The earrings and pendants are cast in New Zealand and finished in a local jeweler’s shop. Each piece of jewelry is shipped in a beautiful plywood box made in Trubridge’s workshop.
Alongside the jewelry, David Trubridge will also be showing Hush, a new lamp that also acts as an acoustic device. The light was originally commissioned by IQ Commercial and is now being included in the designer’s main line. The light consists of a constellation of LED lights set above a layer of sound-absorbing felt. The company will also be showcasing Trubridge’s Pequod lightshade, which mimics the ocean’s ripples with pieces of bamboo. Trubridge also redesigned his Ruth Rocker this year and plans to ship it as a flat pack kitset.
David Trubridge is also getting into the modular furniture game with his innovative Luup table, which can serve as a coffee table, desk, dining table or bar. It comes in a variety of colors and a range of leg pieces to suit any need. Finally, Trubridge’s new Seed System allows designs to be flat packed and easily assembled by consumers at home. For the first time ever, the David Trubridge’s Snowflake Pendant Light, Dondola Recliner and Swish light will be available as flat pack kitsets.
