Fauna and flora continue inspiring designers for creating some peculiar items. Today we have one more cool idea of these: David Trubridge was inspired by fauna while creating his Navicula light. Which? Plankton!
Plankton microorganisms live in the ocean and provide us with oxygen. Some scientists say that they produce more oxygen than plants and trees even. They float in the ocean waters and its interesting shape inspired the light form, which followed its elegant, leafy structure, magnifying its details to reveal the microorganism’s distinct beauty.
Made from lightweight bamboo ply, the Navicula comes flat-packed as individual pieces, ready to be assembled on-site. The Navicula is available in three sizes, designed to fit in differently sized spaces, or even used together as a family. Simple, yet stellar, the Navicula is proof that nature holds incredible amounts of beauty and knowledge, and is an incredible, untapped source of inspiration! Navicula can be a nice fit more many modern spaces, from a kitchen to a bedroom, and it will make an interesting statement – hurry up to get one for your own home!
