David Trubridge's Home Interior Design Idea: Bring the Clouds Inside


Lloyd and I were interested to learn why the clouds were gathering above the booth of David Trubridge inside ICFF. Turns out it had nothing to do with the weather; David's latest collection--called Spiral Islands--was inspired by his observation that over lone, smallish islands in the Pacific, clouds gather in the same shape as the land mass below. He translated the idea into a clever seat and lighting combination, neatly accented by some platters made from sustainably-grown pine cut from a CNC router.

David also talked to us about his plans to continually keep sustainability at the top of his design priorities, exploring new materials options while maintaining a modern, airy feel and having fun creating new designs; get the lowdown with the video and pics below the fold. ::David Trubridge and ::ICFF 2008
