Visitors lucky enough to be attending this week’s Light+Building design fair in Frankfurt will get an enlightening eyeful of David Trubridge. The New Zealand-based designer will be launching two new lighting designs amidst a characteristically sumptuous booth installation anchored by a giant site-specific illuminated “tree.”
Trubridge’s two new launches (pictured above) are Hush, a dome-shaped pendant light fashioned from recycled polypropylene felt, chosen for its sound absorbing properties; and Belle, a gently flared shade-only creation, designed to easily fit over existing pendant or wall light fixtures. Both Hush and Belle are formed with signature Trubridge modules of interlocking elements, mindfully crafted to allow for flat-pack shipping and assembly without tools.
The new lighting offerings and a suite of new furniture will debut at Light+Building, the world’s largest lighting fair, presented alongside a magical installation comprised of previous David Trubridge bestsellers, like the Coral and Koura pendants, and a bespoke floor-to-ceiling tree-like canopy, painstakingly assembled and installed by the designer and his team.
