About

The droplet-like form of Kōura mimics the curled form of our native freshwater shrimp kōura, named by the indigenous Māori people. David was also inspired by the intricately made traps used by early Māori to catch kōura. Kōura is predominantly used as a feature sculptural lighting piece, to attract attention to a certain location. Often it hangs over a bar, in an entry space, stairwell or even hall. It has a strong presence of calm purity and beauty that can be amplified by the choice of finish.
