ShowRoom puts the spotlight on the lesser-known side of contemporary New Zealand furniture practice, revealing an active and diverse range of designers and makers, intent on producing original and innovative work while sustaining themselves in a small and often conservative local market.

The eleven makers in ShowRoom are Greg Bloomfield, Kennedy Brown, Candywhistle, Phil Cuttance, Daniel Emery, Jenny Keate, Tim Larkin, Lindsay Marks, Jamie McLellan, Robert Rose and SubArt (pictured above). There will be a catalogue publication available for purchase from Objectspace.

Objectspace will be hosting a related event, ShowTell, on 6 October 2007. A forum and networking opportunity for all of those interested and involved with contemporary furniture design and the concepts of sustainability and innovation, further information about this event will be forthcoming.
