The 'Navicula' hanging ceiling light fixture is the design work of David Trubridge and draws inspiration in the design from the microscopic organisms living in the Earth's oceans. The New Zealand-based designer created the 'Navicula' light by utilizing CNC cut bamboo plywood that was then strategically bent and shaped in order to create the fluid illusion of movement.

The 'Navicula' hanging ceiling light fixture allows light to escape through the various slits and sections on the light in order to create an illumination mood that is inherently unique. The 'Navicula' light looks like something of a shell or skin and brings an organic touch to a home or office space. This creates a more natural atmosphere that reminds us of the life around us that we often forget is there.
