David designs: “To recreate that vital connection to nature that we have lost so much, living in insulated cities.”
The unique David Trubridge Furniture collection is inspired by nature and available exclusively from PLN Group.
Inspired by the Pacific
Originally with a degree in Naval Architecture (Boat Design), renowned designer David Trubridge taught himself to make furniture. His carefully crafted designs were shown all over the UK.
After sailing the world with his family he settled in New Zealand where, deeply inspired by his impressions of the Pacific, Trubridge began to develop furniture which held close connotations with the sea.
David's work came to prominence in 2001 when the Italian design house Cappellini bought the rights for his design Body Raft. The Coral light followed in 2004 for DTL, establishing a blueprint for kit-set products that minimised environmental footprint. David has since won many awards and accolades.
The company is driven by a strong environmentally conscious philosophy which informs all aspects of design and production.
Soft Ruth Rocker
The David Trubridge Furniture range today consists of a capsule collection containing curved upholstered seating and playful tables.
All David Trubridge Furniture is designed and made in New Zealand and is exclusive to PLN Group.
Soft Ruth Rocker is a contemporary take on a traditional rocking chair which caters to comfort with softly upholstered curves.
Perfect as a whimsical addition to any space, the Soft Ruth Rocker is a simple, sculptural form.
Soft, nurturing and gently moving, the rocker offers a comfortable spot in the creative office to reflect and recharge.
Small islands in the Pacific Ocean, inspired David Trubridge to create the Island Seating in three size options.
The Island Seating’s organic shapes and gentle curves break up the straight lines and hard edges common in today’s modern interiors.
A unique alternative to traditional ottoman shapes, they are ideal grouped together in foyers or receptions, or as a statement piece in a living room. They area great way to add a little extra seating to a space or as collaborative hubs in the office.
Personalise each ottoman in your favourite alternating colours for maximum impact in a variety of applications.Learn about Island Seating
