Devonport's Firefly Light and Design welcomed internationally renowned lighting artist David Trubridge to their showroom on Thursday 20th March as part of his 'Land and Sea - tales from the heart' nationwide roadtrip. Guests enjoyed David's hometown Hawkes Bay wines and apple juice along with cheese platters as they listened to his stories complemented by a beautiful visual presentation on the big screen introducing his three new product ranges. Inspired by his love of nature and the New Zealand environment, the lighting design collections entitled Clouds, EBBS and Baskets of Light reflect the landscape, weather patterns and Māori legends. David's book was available to purchase, along with his wife Linda's autobiography about their journey to New Zealand by sailing yacht in the 1980s. David rounded off his fascinating talk with images of a recent trip to Antarctica and a Q&A session.
