Kina references the inner shell of the local salt water sea-urchin called kina in Māori. David saw a kina shell in Antarctica – an exquisite jewel sunk in a tiny hollow in the sea ice. The shell had absorbed enough warmth from the sun to melt the ice around it.
Kina comes in 5 sizes ranging from 400mm dia to 1600mm dia. Available in bamboo plywood and also offered in a range of colours either painted on one side or two sides.
Please have a look at the brochure for more information and note these lights are shipped in a kitset.
The Seed System kitset light shades are on average 1/30th of the volume of the assembled light. This aims to help minimize the effects of shipping and to reduce the design’s environmental footprint. The lights are supplied with instructions, spare pieces, 2 or 3m flex & bulb holder (but don’t come with a light bulb or ceiling rose).
