#Neptune's Necklace

LOS ANGELES, USA

David Trubridge is an internationally recognised artist and designer whose processes combine craft knowledge, sculptural abstraction and computer design technology with an emphasis on sustainable design. For Westfield Culver City, Trubridge has created spiralling forms of lighting and seating to provide a hub for social engagement and a sanctuary for rest and reinvigoration.

The sculptural seat elements are hand-carved from solid blocks of wood (taken from trees felled in a fire), adding to the space the warmth of organic materials and a tactile connection with nature. The lighting element uses spiralling strips of polycarbonate, bringing the energetic focus from floor level to fill the volume of the space with weightlessness and movement.
