Based on the award-winning Navicula feature light, Toru is crafted from strong, multi-layered bamboo plywood creating a natural skeletal skin. The light's unique three-sided shape is the third pendant light inspired by microscopic diatoms and is named after the Te Reo Maori word for "three". The light adds an element of sculptural nature as it can be installed either horizontally or vertically. Toru's three sides create a mesmerizing twist that interplays light and shadow, providing a warm and welcoming glow that's perfect for dining tables, lounges, foyer, reception or as a corner statement piece. Sustainably made in New Zealand.
