Waka looks like it has approached the floor and stopped in a serene smile. The form triggers curiosity but doesn’t immediately signal how it should be used. With an inviting structure, an open seating is instead offered which is the result of an advanced design which New Zealand designer David Trubridge has refined over different stages of his career.
“The inspiration for this furniture goes all the way back to the ’70s when I studied to become a naval architect. This furniture is derived from the lines in a boat construction and resembles something that floats, something dreamy that you can drift away on,” says David Trubridge.
