Leading designer and maker of contemporary lighting, David Trubridge, has made use of MEDITE® TRICOYA® EXTREME in an innovative outdoor lighting installation in Rotorua on New Zealand’s North Island.
The Nightlights project is the country’s first design-led tourism experience and consists of 30 2.5m tall beautifully designed lantern-style lights. The design, thought up by David Trubridge, needed a material that was durable and able to create a big impact.
MEDITE TRICOYA EXTREME was perfectly suited to this application given its durability, excellent machinability properties and its 50 year guarantee when used in external environments.
Ben Pearce, Head of Marketing at David Trubridge, said: As it’s a wood-based product, it has the right balance of beauty and practicality, such as easy-to-replace panels should a tree branch fall onto it." ”We were so impressed by the use of the material on the large project that we’re trialling it with our signature kitset range, which has typically been used for our internal lighting features".
