New Zealand Design's New HQ

Essenze have now moved into their stylish new premises at 223 Parnell Road and they very kindly invited us along to join them for a beverage or two at their grand opening on Wednesday.

Established in 2004, ESSENZE is New Zealand’s pre eminent design house taking New Zealand design to the world.  Founder Clare Mora has developed the company's well-established profile within both the competitive international and local markets working with over 35 New Zealand designers.  

Essenze have for many years had a strong presence at global design fairs and their international offices maintain strong links the wider global design community - but it was their brand new store in Parnell that was the centre of attention this week as they opened their doors for the very first time.  The carefully curated range of New Zealand manufactured furniture, lighting, rugs, homewares and jewelery on display showcased some of our best design talent in an international retail setting.  

This weekend Essenze is again part of Urbis Design Day, with in store installations from five in-house designers: Te Rongo Kirkwood, David Trubridge, Anzac Tasker, Peter Collis and Brogen Avril.  

Get along and check out the new space and the exhibition!
