The Urbis headquarters at the MINI garage on Ponsonby Road was busy throughout the day, as were all the other showrooms on the circuit.

Driven by the all new MINI Countryman, Urbis Designday® was also generously supported by GEON, Fisher & Paykel, Luxaflex, Dulux, Deutz Prestige, Stoneleigh and Water in a Box, as well as Hewlett Packard with the Future Designers initiative.

Coffee was supplied by Coffee Supreme and transportation by Auckland Co-op Taxis.
