DINZ Designers Speak - Making Design Work
Objects that we live with define who we are but who are the people behind the objects.

• Presenter One: Sam Haughton
Title: A Good Leg
Soundbite: Sam Haughton of IMO talks about the challenges and satisfaction of designing and manufacturing furniture in NZ

• Presenter Two: Jamie McLellan
Title: TBC
Soundbite: TBC

• Presenter Three: David Moreland
Title: Local Produce
Soundbite: Designing, prototyping, photographing and putting into production are the basic steps every idea goes through before being available on the market. Every step is a challenge and at the same time rewarding when coming to fruition.

• Presenter Four: Nathan Goldsworthy
Title: Junctions
Soundbite: Banishing the screw

• Presenter Five: Tim Wigmore
Title: Constructing a Practice
Soundbite: The Tim Wigmore Design Practice enters a new level of awareness of collaboration and the building of relationships. Tim’s talk explores some recent collaborations and how these are helping to enrich and expand the business in new directions.

• Presenter Six: Chris Metcalfe
Title: The Matters of Manufacture
Soundbite: Without doubt, there are a lot of innovative and unique designs coming out of young designers throughout New Zealand. But more often than not they are purely a small scale affair and haven't taken considerations for mass manufacture during the design process. I hope to shed some light on steps that can be taken to ensure the jump from small scale to large scale is made easier (if or when it comes) and how volume changes everything.

Refreshments: Cash bar available - all drinks $7
