The Red Dot Design Award is a coveted award for high-quality product design and has been received by well known designers including Robert Sonneman (SONNEMAN A Way of Light), Pablo Pardo (Pablo Designs), Ray Power (LZF) and Ross Lovegrove (Artemide). The Red Dot Design Award has a new winner this year who is also a favorite at Lumens.
New Zealand’s David Trubridge of David Trubridge Design recently announced he has won the 2015 Red Dot Award for his Snowflake Pendant Light and Nikau Pendant Light, which are apart of his very eco-friendly line of modern ceiling lights. From the materials used to the packaging the pendant designs are sent in, Trubridge emphasizes earth-friendliness and this is one of the many reasons why his Snowflake and Nikau have been honored with the Red Dot Award.
Why We Love the Snowflake & Nikau from Trubridge
In addition to their eco-friendly design, the Snowflake and Nikau pendants from David Trubridge have the ability to cast dramatic shadows on your ceiling and walls. Shadow-casting lights and the concept of shadow play is becoming a trend in decorative lighting design and Trubridge plays into this trend perfectly. Through the structure of each of the lamps’ shades, the light output is dissected into awe-inspiring shadows and patterns, effectively allowing you to create art with light and shadow.
Snowflake by David Trubridge
Snowflake is made from eco-friendly and sustainable bamboo and features a latticed geometric shape that creates delightful shadows. It is available in Aqua, Black, Caramel, Lime, Natural, Orange, Red, Salmon, White and Yellow colors, as well as an LED version to support energy-efficiency.
Nikau by David Trubridge
Nikau is also made from eco-friendly natural bamboo that is wound together in multiple strands to pay tribute to the New Zealand palm tree the design is based on. Similar to the Snowflake pendant, its design allows you to create beautiful shadows for ceilings and walls in entryways and great rooms.
