+ First 25 attendees with valid Student ID receive a FREE signed copy of David Trubridge’s book “So Far” (an $80 value), an account of his development as a designer, which has become a collector’s item by virtue of its sell-out, difficult-to-find status.

Trubridge’s appearance at Lekker Home is the only Boston-planned event in recognition of National Design Week and is the only Boston appearance scheduled during David’s brief visit to the United States.


David Trubridge graduated from Newcastle University in England with a degree in Naval Architecture (Boat Design). Working as a forester in rural Northumberland for the next ten years, he taught himself to make furniture.

In 1981, Trubridge and his wife set off to sail around the world with their two small sons. Their boat, the Hornpipe, would be their home for the next four years as they navigated their way throughout the Caribbean and the Pacific.

The family arrived in New Zealand in 1985. Deeply inspired by his impressions of the Pacific, Trubridge began to develop furniture which held close connotations with the sea.  Fortunes changed dramatically for Trubridge with his re-launch of Body Raft 98 which was taken to the Milan Furniture Fair in 2001 and brought into production by Cappellini. This signaled the transformation of the business from a small-scale model to one that has a considerable presence on the international lighting and furniture market.

CIDA site visit is complete!
