A sample of what we wrote:
Lonely retail store
"Lonely’s flagship store in Ponsonby is the first physical retail space by the womenswear label known for garments made for comfort as much as looks. For a company that likes to do things a little differently, it was no surprise to see them upend retail conventions with this exquisite private ‘dressing room’ designed by Rufus Knight."
"At first glance, the design and healthcare industries couldn’t be more different. Design is perceived as fluid, open-ended and intuitive, while the healthcare profession seems far more precise, objective and scientific. The innovative Design for Health and Wellbeing (DHW) Lab at Auckland City Hospital brings the two paradigms together in a studio space set up for collaborative and co-design processes. Together, the two organisations are exploring how health and wellbeing can be enhanced for the good of all hospital users when multiple voices are guided by design-thinking."
