Chuffed to be participating in this show, curated by Matt Blomeley for Objectspace.
From the press release:
“Quotidian (def: everyday, commonplace) invites 11 New Zealand designers to talk about examples of everyday design, uncovering how design ideas are recycled, leveraged, refined and can in turn inspire new design. Using the exhibition as a forum for designers to think globally while advancing local design discourse, each participant will showcase an everyday design object alongside an object of their own design and write about their understandings – and discoveries – brought about through considering the vices and virtues of “everyday” objects.”

I recently finished working with Matt Blomeley to set up an exhibition for Jamie Mclellan in the Vault at Objectspace gallery. The show features some of his work for Tom Dixon as well as recent work for Fletcher Systems and Simon James’ new label Resident.
From The Media Release:
Designer Jamie McLellan says “over the years I have learned to live with and celebrate my inner engineer. More and more I am finding the beauty of an object lies in its engineering, how it’s put together. I find both a purity in exposing this and at the same time a higher a level of detail being possible without the need for anything superflous.”
