Railway Street Studios in Newmarket, Auckland, will host Dragonbox Design Group’s show ‘Locus - converging objects’ from November 11 - 29.

Dragonbox consists of four designers who meet regularly to critique each other’s designs, support each other in the design process, and generate opportunities to show and sell their work.

All four designers work in three dimensions. Edward Fuller creates furniture pieces that use plywood formed into angular shapes that converge to create structure. Kennedy Brown uses up-cycled wood to create furniture that often has a pacific bent.

Ron Crummer creates quirky and beautiful homeware and furniture pieces that are often colourful, from metal, fabric and timber. Leon Kipa creates sculptural pieces inspired by Maori legends and patterns, and by family members, such as his uncle who inspired the cast polyurethane resin figurine he will be presenting at Locus.

This will be the Dragonbox’s second group show. The designers will host a floor talk on November 18 at 11am.
