British-born, Hawkes Bay-based designer David Trubridge, takes part in a Q&A for the latest issue of Dwell, where he quizzed about number of things like his ideal working environment, what music keeps him thinking about design and where he sees his profession in 20 years, which he puts a caveat on: “Cultures are historically defined by their art, but we’ve lost that fundamentally human element and replaced it with a consumer binge. Designers are crucial to the future, creating objects that are like nourishing food: lasting, with a sense of identity and sufficiency within them.”
