Modern, cozy and artistic, maybe the exact words which perfect to say for this contemporary pendant light design. Lately, I have got the info that this pendant light installation was created by David Trubridge, he is a New Zealand based designer.
That was shown at Superstudio Piú, David designing this pendant light installation for Milan Design Week. I guess in designing this pendant light installation, the designer inspired by the story of Icarus and I think this is great. As the information, last year the designer told the Maori story of ‘The Three Basket of Knowledge’, and this year by illustrating the dual nature of this knowledge, he follow that up.
Who hasn’t stood on a cliff-top and longed to leap off, soaring effortlessly? Flight has forever been mankind’s ultimate dream, I think about it. That dream is both a physical escape from the bondage of gravity, and a metaphorical liberation from the body’s earthly desires. You can now fly, whether it is in a jet, a hang-glider or a squirrel suit. But has this technical achievement granted you enrichment or just adrenalin rush? I suggest that such technical advances are insufficient on their own without greater wisdom. Like Icarus, you could be carried away and fly too close to the destructive heat of the sun, is that a beautiful word of me?
Based on my study, New Zealand used to be inhabited solely by birds, there are o mammals. In Maori mythology birds are the ‘Kaitiaki’, the original guardians. All-seeing, they glide freely over the land, keeping watch. They are the intermediaries with the sky, the heavens and the gods.
We are now the guardians of our planet which is threatened by the heat of the sun. We must not lose our aspirations but use our knowledge wisely for the benefit of all. The ability to fly is not enough – it is what we do with it that matters. Borne by our wings, we can spread our knowledge for all, rather than flying off alone too high.
That’s all, I’m pretty sure your home will be impressive by this interior decoration, try installing it!
