Flax (2006) is based on the long slender leaves of the indigenous flax plant or harakeke in Maori. It has long been grown for its valuable fibre. There is a Maori proverb about preserving important resources: If you cut the central stalk of the flax bush, where will the bellbird feed? Maori would only take some of the outer leaves to ensure an ongoing supply.
Finishes offered: Natural Bamboo: Light or pale in color; we use this plywood for our painted lights. Caramel Bamboo: Similar to Natural but a light brown color; does lighten over time. Colors: Red, Pink (Salmon Pink), Yellow, Orange, Lime and Aqua on Natural Bamboo. White painted: One or two sides on Natural Bamboo. Black Stain: A deep black stain on all surfaces as we stain after our components are cut. Colors with Caramel bamboo can be ordered, please contact us to place the order. David Trubridge uses only water-based stains and low VOC water-based paints.
Wherever possible, all timber is from sustainably managed plantations in Australia, New Zealand, or the United States. Wood is left natural where appropriate, with natural non-toxic oils being used in place of harmful solvents. From a design point of view, the products use only the minimal amount of materials and are generated with a focus on longevity, rather than mimicking quick-moving trends. The David Trubridge lighting line is designed as Seed Systems (Kitsets) that are flat packed and assembled at the installation location. Given that the product is shipped from New Zealand, this method of shipping reduces shipping costs, minimizes risk of damage, and reduces the impact on the environment with significantly (40-50) less volume in each shipment. Fixtures are easy to assemble and include detailed instructions for guidance.
Care instructions: All wooden and/or polycarbonate lights are intended for use in dry interior conditions only, and can be cleaned with a soft cloth dampened in warm soapy water when the light is switched off.
Fixtures are supplied with cUL/UL Listed electrics.
Note: David Trubridge Design does not manufacture electrical components utilized in the fixtures. These are sourced from UL/cUL certified manufacturers. As such, our shades are hung on UL/cUL certified electrical cordsets.
