david trubridge's coral lamps.

i am loving this afternoon, these bamboo plywood coral lamps created and offered up by david trubridge. not only are david's designs captivating and allow for and elicit emotional responses, so too will the words with which he describes himself and his art.
part of david's philosophy is this: "i make forms of elemental simplicity, as the erosion of air and water on wood and stone, forms that speak of humanity's survival on earth, of life's fragility and dependence, of comfort in the ways of the past that have succoured us, and optimism for a sustainable and enriching future."

see what i mean? beyond interesting on every level. i hope you take some more time to visit david trubridge's site, to read about his designs, to read his words. as i've said in the past here on avant garde design, it is designers/artists like david that keep the world spinning in the most interesting of ways. enjoy!
