The Coral Lightshade, designed by David Trubridge and manufactured by Whiteflax, is a true eye-catcher. This pendant gives a warm light and a beautiful pattern on ceiling and walls. The design is the result of two influences: the repeating patterns of ice crystals David Trubridge saw in Antarctica and the similar patterns he saw in underwater coral.
Made from pine plywood, the lamp’s outer shell is pieced together from individual pieces, each with five digits, which are attached to one another. The pendant shade, available in 600mm and 800mm diameter, is shipped as a flat pack with excellent instructions (in English) for self-assembly. Electrical fittings and a cable are included. Price is starting at $380.
