David Trubridge - Hinaki

David Trubridge

Hinaki could be classed as David’s first exploration into lighting. In 1995 he made a prototype based on fish traps which are called hinaki by Maori, though often the name is used specifically for an eel trap. They were made from woven vines, some in amazingly beautiful forms. He set it aside for many years, only to develop it later (2011) after Coral had gained international attention.

Larger Hinaki pendants work well, (often in multiples) in higher spaces such as entrance voids, and staircases. The smaller Hinakis are very versatile and are often used over island benches and smaller spaces such as narrow hallways.  Depending on your space, we can recommend an appropriate size. We usually have a sample pendant on hand that you can take home to make sure you get the sizing correct.

Assembly: Hinaki pendants are designed to be assembled by the end user and come complete with 2m white flex, ceiling rose, bulb holder and good assembly instructions. There are also instructional videos available to help. (A globe is not supplied as standard). We do however offer an assembly service, ($50 per pendant) and can also supply a range of globe options.
