Exhibition Stand at Designex

Posted by on in Design Shows

Last year I was asked by Fisher and Paykel appliances to design a stand for Designex, a trade only show at ASB showground’s in Greenlane. This show is aimed at showcasing product to architects, builders and designers. It was proven to be a great success and received many compliments from all who attended the show.

The materials used in this display are a combination of natural products like heavy stone and oiled timber cabinetry mixed with industrial elements like the highly polished stainless steel and glass.

After Designex was over I was asked to adapt this design so it would work as a permanent display at The Home Ideas Centre in Auckland. As the allocated space was very different in size from what we had at Designex the design needed to change to work for this very long and narrow space. With the addition of some funky wallpapers and an extra dedicated laundry space the layout has been transformed but the overall effect remains the same.

European Inspiration

Posted by on in Design Shows

Have just returned from a sensational whirlwind design trip across Europe, visiting Germany, Austria and Italy.

First stop was to a series of exclusive invite-only supplier tours to observe their stunning workmanship and state-of-the-art manufacturing processes. This was then followed by the international ‘Eurocucina’ trade show held in fashionable Milan.

Needless to say – I am now buzzing with fresh new ideas I can’t wait to add to my upcoming designs!

Some of the shots I took at the 'Eurocucina' trade show...
