Urbis Design Day 2013

Driving to work in traffic this morning, you could be forgiven for wishing that Urbis Design Day was every day.

Not only did the creative minds behind this event solve transport problems (with quick, easy shuttle buses that arrived every ten minutes) but they kept us entertained for the entire journey. Whether it was an ice block in the sun after viewing an exhibition at Silo park or following a trail to find your ideal type face - Urbis Design Day kept us hooked on beautiful ideas, colour and of course, furniture. For a special Mr. Bigglesworthy touch, our original Backhouse sofa was enjoyed by all who attended the Backhouse event. Backhouse was one of New Zealand's premier mid century furniture makers. Their sleek in-house designs and international licensed pieces were often made of solid teak and reflected a New Zealand take on mid century design. Today Backhouse still design furniture, as well as retailing fresh contemporary designs by the likes of Kartell and David Trubridge.
