Come behind the scenes and discover more about New Zealand design with a collection of panel discussions, product highlights, and design mixers.
The New Zealand Design Pavilion is an inspirational interior furnishings showcase of distinctive and commercially available designs and will debut in San Francisco from June 20th until July 1st, 2022 to coincide with San Francisco Design Week. The exhibition brings together six Brands – Citta, David Trubridge, Nodi, Noho, James Dunlop Textiles and Resident – to showcase a highly curated assortment of furniture, lighting, flooring and textile products. The installation covers 7500 square feet, and welcomes the San Francisco Architecture and Design community to be personally hosted in an intimate and relaxed setting by the brands’ founders and design principals.
It’s often said that New Zealanders are the world’s friendliest people. That’s in no small part due to our deep-rooted belief in the value of people. We believe in elevating humanity. Creating spaces that are good for people. Connecting them with our natural world.
New Zealand Design brings together a group of independent furniture, lighting and textile businesses. Designers of original and enduring products that engage the senses and marry functional with the beautiful. Because as humans, we’re all thinking, feeling creatures who instinctively crave spaces designed to be enjoyed.
We believe our unique approach is the perfect answer to the world’s changing perception of what a ‘space’ should mean and offer.
Our products embody our unique perspective on the world. Inspired by the land, people and values of our home, we create products that foster synergy between people and our natural world.
We aim to break the boundaries between these two worlds that should now be forever intertwined to make spaces that are good for people.
Visit our installation or visit us online to learn more (due to strict capacity limits, bookings must be made 24 hours in advance). Distinctive, high-performing, and timeless products of our place and people.
Events are independently listed by NZ Design Pavilion with standalone registration through a 3rd Party System. You will not be able to register for these events through your SF Design Week OnePass account and must use NZ Design Pavilion Eventbrite.
