- Artist Bio
"The name comes from the word 'alluvial' which means layers of sand strata laid down by rivers. The 'Sand Shade' has patterns cut on its inside which are only visible when the light is turned on. These patterns are like the braided rivulets made by water running across sand, or rivers through gravel. Sculptor Ben Pearce frequently uses woodturning in his sculpture. He designed 'Little Ed' lamp base with old toys and tribal carvings in mind and wanted to create a solid sensuous lamp that would last for generations." - David Trubridge

David Trubridge graduated from Newcastle University in England in 1972 with a degree in Naval Architecture (Boat Design). Working as a forester part-time in rural Northumberland for a short period, he taught himself to make furniture. His carefully crafted designs were shown all over the UK.
In 1981, Trubridge and his wife Linda set off to sail around the world with their two small sons. They sold all they had and bought ‘Hornpipe’, the yacht that was their home for the next ten years as they navigated their way throughout the Caribbean and the Pacific.
The family arrived in New Zealand in 1985. Deeply inspired by his impressions of the Pacific, Trubridge began to develop furniture which held close connotations with the sea.
Fortunes changed dramatically for Trubridge with his re-launch of Body Raft which was taken to the Milan Furniture Fair in 2001 and brought into production by Cappellini. This signaled the transformation of the business from a small-scale model to one that has a considerable presence on the international lighting and furniture market.
