In the great tradition of the Kiwi bach (or basic holiday home), the H ut o n Sleds
is both tiny and ingenio us. Design ed to close up again st the elements, the hut
measures a mere 40 sqm an d rests on two thick wo oden sleds that allow it
to be shifted around the beach front section on the Coromandel Peninsula.
An enormous shutter winches open to create an awning and reveal a pair
of two- storey steel-framed glass doo rs. In side, eve ry bit of space has been
cleverly utilised – right dow n to secret cubby holes hidde n in the children’s
bunk room – to function simply and elegantly for a family of five. The Hut
o n Sleds, by Crosso n Cla rke Ca rn achan Architects, has been recognised with
a smattering of awards from all around the world, including the 2012 NZ Wood
Timber Design Award fo r Exterior In n ovation . nz wood.co .nz , ccca .co.nz .

lamp to move smo othly and rest
effor tlessly at any height. Scisso r
comes w ith a powder-co ated
alu miniu m shade, brass fittings
an d a fabric cord. NZ$1200

John D euchrass’s D ew han ging chai r is beautiful an d laid-back , just like the
lakeside reso rt town it co mes fro m. The Wanak a-based architect designed
the Dew chair to be both sculptu ral an d fun ction al, the skeletal fo rm
inspired by the stru ctu re of a shredded chrysalis cocoo n . Made from
natural or dark-stained ply, the Dew is for indoor or outdoor use, and
comes fl at-packed. The stru ctu re is interlocking an d can be quickly assembled
without any fixings or glue. NZ$1599 (AU$1270), cleverbastards.co .nz .
