David Trubridge, one of New Zealand’s most celebrated green designers, reincarnates natural forms as light fixtures and seating in his latest work.
His Spiral Island collection evokes a sense of natural wonder in viewers, and garnered a line of eager spectators at the Salone show in Milan.
The Spiral Island collection fixtures and the seating are as environmentally responsible as possible. The fasteners are aluminum, maintaining the fixture’s physical lightness, while the PETG plastic strips are fully recyclable.
All the wood used by David Trubridge for his Spiral Seating is milled from government controlled wood sources in Australia and is held together with non-toxic glues or solvents and aluminum fasteners.
The upholstery is made of 100% pure wool colored by nontoxic dyes and stuffed with wool felt made from wool scraps. The interior structure of the seat is maintained with recycled cardboard honeycomb and the entire seat can be deconstructed for ease of recycling at the end of its lifespan.
