The Yours design collective began
this year as an experiment to allow
three industrial design gradu ates to
explo re their capabilities an d style.
Now ready to make its mark on the
NZ (and soon global) design scene,
Yours has released its first collection
of furniture and opened a showroom
in Tauranga. Designers Sam Griffin,
James McNab an d Daniel Ka mp
describe it as “ fresh an d bold,
almost primary, in the fact that the
co mbination of simple forms a nd
co n trasting materials is co nsisten t
thro u ghout. Exposed fixings and
honest struc tural elements give
a n in sight into the assembly of
o u r pieces". yoursdesign.co .nz .
