The fourth Urbis Designday® celebrated authentic design in style.

Auckland was a sea of yellow this time round. Bright yellow Designday® bags and banners were seen all over the city and guests were transported between showrooms in taxis.

Stunning installations were the feature of the day again, with patrons drooling over stunning creations.
