California Design Encounter August 25

Dan and Emma were delighted to be part of California Design at the Auckland Art Gallery on August 25.

We were invited to bring 10 of our favourite design pieces to the Auckland Art Gallery as part of the Design Encounters series and give a short talk. We introduced the audience to the modernist ideas which connected California design to New Zealand. This was illustrated with descriptions of the work of Grant Featherston, Adrian Pearsall and Bob Roukema for Jon Jansen along with a stunning example of the Eames 670 Lounger and Ottoman made under license in New Zealand. Our setting made use of the North Atrium space with a period style symmetrical lounge setting incorporating a rug from our friends at Dilana. As with the Eames Case Study House, we included a suite of plants to highlight the organic nature of the design. Join us at our second Design Encounter, September 22
