• Kindred

    To be associated by origin, nature or qualities is to be kindred. This show brings together a selection of New Zealand studio furniture designers whose work shares an interest in making work informed by a distinctly New Zealand point of view.


    Kindred explores meaningful and contemporary ways that these designers marry Māori and European ideas within design. Specifically, the selected works reflect interest in embodying indigenous narratives, materials or concepts in form. Combining these influences with Western manufacturing technologies offers a new perspective on what it might mean to work within a hybrid design culture.
