Abstract

Where does New Zealand design come from? It is debatable whether there is something that you can definitely call New Zealand Design. There is design from New Zealand and things that have been designed made or manufactured in New Zealand. One could argue that it is illogical to try and distinguish between design from different countries as many companies sell their products in a global market and therefore cannot afford to design just for a home market. Many New Zealanders would say that there is something special about New Zealand design: that a product from New Zealand can be identified as such, that a building has a certain ‘New Zealandness’ about it - but what is it that makes up this New Zealand feeling, aesthetic and sense of place?
