David Trubridge - Kina
The form of our Kina light comes from the shell of a sea-urchin, which in New Zealand is called Kina by the indigenous Māori people. David saw one frozen under the Antarctic ice during a visit there in 2004. The shell had absorbed enough warmth from the sun to melt the ice around it. He used the same mathematical formula as Coral and Floral to develop the design and make one from thin plywood.
Kina is widely used over dining situations as its opening allows clear light onto the dining surface. Kina has a woven language with soft rounded connections, interweaving the fine grained bamboo. The size range makes Kina an ideal choice anywhere from a small bedroom right up to a large foyer or lobby.

The Seed System kitset light shades are on average 1/30th of the volume of the assembled light. This aims to help minimize the effects of shipping and to reduce the design’s environmental footprint. The lights are supplied with instructions, spare pieces, 2 or 3m flex & bulb holder (but don’t come with a light bulb or ceiling rose).
