I’m SO happy to bring you this follow up to the product that kicked off the TEAM.WORK collaboration project! Just 18 months ago I met with designers Mike Grobelny and Nikolai Sorenson of Trestle Union and floated the idea of pot plant stands. In true form, they knocked around some ideas, experimented with prototypes and arrived at a design which is distinctly true to both of our brands and has proved to be a favourite for many of you. It has been super satisfying to see the stands popping up in your homes

Photography by Evie Mackay, Plants and styling by Eden Hessell of The Botanist Location: Fuzzy Vibes …… It’s with huge pleasure that I FINALLY get to share with you the debut project in my new TEAM.WORK collaboration series.

From left: The Trestle Union – Nikolai Sorensen and Mike Grobelny in the AUT workshop. …… While I can’t remember the first time I came across The Trestle Union, I do still remember the momentary thrill at finding furniture designed and made in NZ that I could actually afford! Un surprisingly, accessibility was definitely a motivating factor when two savvy product design students from AUT knocked heads and decided to give a business a whirl. Trestle Union is as fluid and forward thinking as its two young designers which meant that

The Trestle Union is a new Auckland based brand that have made it their mission to bring the simple, functional beauty of the humble trestle table to the masses. Offering complete table sets in ply and glass you can also go for their snappy little shelving unit or even just a pair of legs. As a loyal trestle table owner myself, I’m excited to watch the Trestle Union liberating offices and homes around the country.  

Hi! If you’re arriving here for the first time in a while you will see some obvious changes! After beginning life as NZ’s very first design blog in 2008, the site has tracked a path exclusively focused on connecting you with the work of talented NZ/AUS creative brands/people/products and projects. The intimate, casual reporting and interviewing style used by many early bloggers has slowly been adopted by the media at large to profile makers and artists in the own environments, free of overtly staged imagery and revealing the humans behind

Indoor Plants One of my favourite NZ artists and creative minds; Anna Church recently defined an “Interior Enviromentalist” in a piece on her blog. “Interior Environmentalists love introducing nature into their homes through pot plants, cut flowers, art or textiles”  – Anna Church : artist/stylist/person who lives in a home   The description rang as true to me as my star sign profile (I’m a Cancer through and through man!) and gave me a blazing green light to UP my pot plant quota. Not something everyone in the household was

I really hope you are staring down the barrel of some GREAT down time over the next few weeks! For the first time in years I have decided to take a real proper digital holiday,  meaning no posts or social media activity until the 11th of Jan (we’ll see if I can stick to that!) I’m going to be spending Christmas and New Year in the Southern Lakes followed by the rest of January in Christchurch and surrounds …… getting used to my “soon to be” permanent base! Yes! Change

Having championed the re-use of the massive amount of material resulting from the demolition of buildings from earthquake damage, Rekindle has emerged not only as an exciting and engaged social enterprise but fly the flag for NZ design

In an effort to challenge societies cheap, throw-away culture – Designer Nikolai Sorensen (one half of the Trestle Union team) designed and produced this beautiful tent as the final project in his Product Design degree at AUT. Its more than just good looking! This is his statement behind the concept: “Over the past 20 years the perception of the two-man tent has depreciated from a highly valued piece of camping equipment to a cheap, throw-away, disposable item. A quick look at the aftermath of any music festival provides proof of
