I was able to buy the 600 mm Coral Light kitset when I was in the Valley yesterday. For an extra $50 you can have it fully assembled but I'm cheap and Jason is handy, so that wasn't an option. The instruction sheet said it would take approximately 40 to 60 minutes to build.
Sixty bamboo plywood pieces to be attached with rivets in a repeating pattern.
Holy Mother of Impossible Jigsaw Puzzles! Thankfully, Jason has a spatial brain and can read instructions.
Keeping up our liquids was an essential element of the assembly process.
It is such a simple concept which makes this good design - why couldn't I have been blessed with such ingenuity? David Trubridge is a New Zealand designer who uses only natural materials in his designs to leave behind a more delicate footprint. The Coral design was released in 2004.
Anyway, the instructions lied. It took well over an hour for us to assemble the Coral Light...but, nonetheless a moment to be truly proud. Now we need to call the electrician to wire it in.
I'll keep you posted.
