Coral

Designed by wakaNINE

The Coral pendant light was David Trubridge’s first lighting design, created in 2002, and is now considered a design classic.

As with many of Trubridge’s award-winning designs, the Coral pendant was developed through play. The Coral fixture is based on one of the geometric polyhedra that have interested Trubridge since he was a boy. He developed the design over years experimenting with different materials and construction techniques before coming up with the current lighting design, which has maximum impact using minimal materials.

In the ingenious Coral design, 60 identical component pieces are CNC cut from flat bamboo which, when assembled, are bent in 3 dimensions to create a sphere. The negative space is a series of pentagons, diamonds & kites that cast dramatic shadow patterns. Shadows can be enhanced or diminished via lamping and proximity to surfaces.
