The Baskets of Knowledge are based on a Māori creation myth in which the gods gave humans three baskets containing the knowledge they needed to live on Earth.

They hold the knowledge of the natural world (Kete Aronui: bamboo basket), the spiritual world (Kete Tuatea: polycarbonate basket) and our rational world (Kete Tuauri: aluminium basket).
David believes that these three need to be in balance for us to live harmoniously on Earth. The lights were designed especially for the 2009 Milan Design Fair and have been specified since for lobbies, businesses, airports and private residences. The light has a standard E27 (E26 USA) fitting so any LED bulb can be used to suit the lighting requirements.
