With light sources that are less visible than most of their lights, Belle and Beau Kitset Pendants introduce a new aesthetic to the David Trubridge Collection.

Made from thin 1mm bamboo plywood through which a warm glow filters into the room, accentuated by overlapping patterns, Belle and Beau is a new development by Marion Courtillé, a member of the David Trubridge design team from France.

“The new collection offers various new lighting options due to the different effects the finish has on the lights; the black stain limits the amount of light, creating a moody mysterious space, whilst the natural option glows like a lantern… This is similar to our other lights which are already being used to create atmosphere and drama, rather than primarily to illuminate a room.” says David Trubridge.

Belle and Beau are part of the company’s heralded Seed System kitset lighting collection where the product is designed to be sent packed flat and then constructed on site by either the shop or customer. Life Cycle Analysis studies of their first light design, Coral, proved that if the kitset is freighted to Europe by sea it has the same environmental impact to the same light made in Europe.
