Artisan 2017, a new trade-only design event for retailers, interior designers and commercial professionals, hits three of our main centres this May. Run by James Dunlop Textiles, Artisan will bring together six international textile brands and four leading New Zealand furniture designers and manufacturers to collaborate on projects and showcase their latest collections.
Arriving from overseas will be Yvan and Owen Puylaert from Belgium’s Designs of the Time; Carrie Ferguson from Bluebellgray in Scotland; Nick Handbury who works for three top design houses from England’s The Romo Group: Villa Nova, Kirkby Design and Zinc; and Camilla Fischbacher from Christian Fischbacher of Switzerland.
They will be joined by local designers David Shaw, Montreux Furniture, Kovacs and Profile Furniture.
“This new industry initiative promises to be an exciting opportunity for design professionals to connect and be inspired,” says Bridget Moir of James Dunlop Textiles.
The event will be held in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch and run from 10am to 7pm. James Dunlop Textiles will be updating their website with further information as the dates approach.
