I am a huge out-loud and proud fan of New Zealand design. I love the Kiwi design perspective, it feels uncluttered and free to be innovative often with its heart in sustainability. So we are uber-uber proud to be included on the Clever Bastards website - a site profiling the best of NZ art & design.
Paul Kayser and his team at Clever Bastards have passionately built an unpretentious, 'kiwi-as' online home for NZ creativity aiming to utilise the internet to allow New Zealanders to do what we were always best at: talking to our neighbours, meeting strangers, sharing a yarn and sometimes doing business.
And now they are sharing their love for NZ and Kiwi design to support Christchurch by running an online art & design auction, including a set of 4 signed books from us. All proceeds from this auction are going to the Red Cross 2011 Earthquake Appeal.
This is a personal favourite of mine - The Tio chair from Nathan Goldsworthy, Concsious design. It's already sitting in my 'dream' lounge and gives me great pleasure when I think about it (and it's just a chair!)
