About Maru

Maru's hidden secret is the kaleidoscopic pattern of light it casts upwards. The torus form is inspired by diatoms, which are at the base of the entire oceanic food chain. The name Maru is found in both New Zealand Māori and Japanese languages, with references to the cycle of life. Maru is a feature lighting sculpture powered by six internal Lumiled LED's, which project light upwards creating overlapping patterns. Maru can complement other light sources and equally provide a moody 'wow!' element, in a low-lit environment such as a bar, lounge, or restaurant.

Please note: Painted options of Maru are generally cut to order with a lead time of up to 8 weeks. If you need your light urgently, please email us for current stock levels: info@davidtrubridge.com

How do I choose a light?

Not sure which light to buy? We can give you some advice about designs and sizes. Our lights are a larger than other options on the market, and are intended to be large features. Being thin plywood, they look much smaller once they are installed too and our clients often say they'd wished they'd gone slightly bigger. Read our full FAQ section by following the arrow below.
