Home' Scoop Homes and Art : Insite 23 Summer 2009 Contents DECAL DELIGHTS
Zozo Living wall decals were created by designer
Margreet van der Veen as a simple way to add interest
to any room. In addition to her own designs, Margreet
works with New Zealand-based and overseas designers
(like Stephen Crowhurst from Hello Hello in Canada).
Margreet designed the Manuka (New Zealand tea
tree) graphic from a tree she spotted on the road to
Tawharanui Regional Park north of Auckland. The
self-adhesive vinyl decals are made in New Zealand,
easy to apply and remove and can be used on most flat
surfaces. The Manuka graphic is available in various
colours and two sizes, 150cm and 200cm.
LIGHT YEARS AHEAD
The Tripod lamp is a lovely, simple creation from the father-
daughter design team of Rebecca and Doug Snelling at
Workroom. Each Workroom product is made on-site in their
Clevedon design studio south of Auckland with a focus on
functionality and simplicity, which translates to clean lines
and a natural finish, just like this Tripod in tawa with a pepper
linen shade. "The balance and proportion of this lamp are
integral," says Rebecca. Because they work with their hands
(rather than on computers), Rebecca and Doug can refine
their designs as they go. "We like the process of conception
of idea to product and then refinement of the work.
This moves the emphasis away from commercial product
to creating pieces." workroom.co.nz.

INSITE SUMMER 51
SWEET AS CANDY
Good enough to eat, Zekiah Heath's Candy bowls come in tasty colours such as strawberry, mint, lemon dusk,
lavender and grey. Mix and match them for a fresh summer table. Zekiah used her design degree in the fashion
industry before moving to ceramics. "I have an obsession with creating objects that are repetitive in form yet
individual in pattern and decoration," she says. Each piece is handmade and therefore individual. Candy bowls
are available in medium (soup/salad) and small (dipping).
