Does David Trubridge ever hit a flat note? Apparently not. The latest from this prolific Kiwi designer's studio is Pequod, a kitset light shade that slips straight over your bulb holder.

The latest from this prolific Kiwi designer's studio is Pequod, a kitset light shade that slips straight over your bulb holder. There's even a handy how to video to accompany it.

Pequod, named for the whaling ship in Moby Dick, is the result of a project for Starbucks that never came to fruition. (Incidentally, the first mate on that ship was called Starbuck.) Trubridge has further developed the concept in two different sizes, and the Pequod made its first outing at new Zealand Fashion Week.
