David Trubridge is an internationally acclaimed designer known for his iconic range of furniture and lighting.  A firm believer in reuse, his studio was created out of an abandoned joinery shop in a closed meatpacking district in Hawke's Bay, NZ.  His work is produced in New Zealand using only natural materials in order to reduce the effect on the environment. 

Trubridge has exhibited his work widely, both within New Zealand and around the world. He has had works commissioned for London's Victoria and Albert Museum, exhibited at the Milan furniture fairs as well as the International Contemporary Furniture Fair and taught at the Vitra summer design school in Milan. Notably, in 2007, Trubridge received the "John Britten" award, New Zealand's highest design recognition.

David's iconic lighting and furniture designs can be found on a wide range of eco-friendly home decor products from rugs to textiles.
