Colour: Natural Wood
Natural Wood
Caramel

Maru is made from 60 identical components that clip together to create an elliptical form. This is inspired by diatoms (continuing on from Navicula released in 2017) which are at the base of the entire oceanic food chain. Through photosynthesis, they liberate enough oxygen for our every second breath.

 

The swirling panels of sustainably managed bamboo plywood are arrayed around its form, lit internally by low energy LED modules. The effect of shadow play on surrounding walls and ceiling is Maru’s hidden quality. The name Maru is found in both New Zealand Maori and Japanese languages, with references to the cycle of life. Maru is available in two sizes and in all stock colour options.

  • Self Assembly 
  • Uses Bamboo Plywood which is a fast growing material and very sustainable
  • Shipped as a kitset which on average is 1/30th the volume of an assembled light, reducing effects of shipping and environmental footprint

 

 WHAT WE THINK

David Trubridge lighting, takes from the natural world and it translates through his designs, when we look at David Trubridge's lighting collection, we notice a sophistication and contentment to leave things be, not trying hard to be elaborate or showy. The materials still have all their raw natural character and tactility which helps bring an unassuming calmness and curiosity to the pieces.

David's work came to prominence in 2001 when the Italian design house Cappellini bought the rights for Body Raft. The Coral light followed in 2004 for DTL, establishing a blueprint for kit-set products that minimised environmental footprint. The company is proud to hold Life Cycle Assessments (LCA’s) and Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs).

 

David's designs have featured in countless international publications including the most influential, as an instigator of the trend of 'raw sophistication' and as an exemplar of environmentally responsible design. In 2008 the French magazine Express listed him as one of the top 15 designers in the world, and in 2012 the Pompidou Centre in Paris purchased his 'Icarus' installation for its permanent collection.
