An Artful New Light Inspired by Nature

September 20, 2013

Spotted at London Design Week 2013: Inspired by the Manuka flower of New Zealand, David Trubridge adds a layer of polycarbonate petals to a base of bamboo petals to replicate the delicate, five-pointed blossoms of the native blossom. The Manuka Light’s embedded LED bulbs cast razor sharp intricate patterns around the room, keeping things bright and interesting on the inside. The Manuka Light is available through Holloways of Ludlow in the UK and Wakanine in the US.
