urbis design day 2013
Urbis Design Day is like NZFW for those of us who are design-inclined. I always enjoy each Urbis Design Day and am looking forward to this years which is called Journey of Connections 2013. Each year has a different flavor and combinations of the who’s who in NZ design, which were announced last week at Citizen Park in Kingsland. I was supposed to be there but was alas at home with two sick children. It would have been the highlight of the week had I actually gone to it!
So this year we have ten pairings with interiors companies ECC Lighting, Backhouse Interiors, Bo Concepts, spaziocasa, paired with RESENE, MINI, Gather & Hunt, and Hewlett Packard. Mixed into this is TapeArt NZ, Whitecliffe College of Arts & Design, Styled by You, Yvonne Bennetti, Matter, photographer Simon Devitt and Youmans Capsules. With interactive installations on K Rd, photographic displays, technology experiences down in Silo Park, sensory journeys involving sensational food in Parnell – it is a series of wonderful collaborations all over inner city Auckland. Tickets are $30 single or $50 for a double and are available from events.co.nz. Passes can be bought on the day for $35. I have 2 double passes to giveaway so like or comment on my Facebook post about Urbis Design Day to go into the draw. The winner will be drawn on Tuesday evening. Prepare to be inspired!
