David Trubridge - Hinaki

David Trubridge

The Hinaki was one of David's first pendant designs. In 1995 he made a prototype based on fish traps which are called "hinaki" in 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 the prototype 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 help suggest an appropriate size.

Designed and manufactured in Hawkes Bay, New Zealand.
