Hinaki (1995/2011) could be classed as David’s first exploration into lighting. In 1995 he made a prototype based on fish traps which are called Hinaki by Maori, though often the name is used specifically for an eel trap. They were made from woven vines, some in amazingly beautiful forms. He set it aside for many years, only to develop it later (2011) after Coral had gained international attention.
