A hint of noir

We like local designer Timothy John's newest collection, Woven. Very much.

John has come up with a range of everyday products made almost entirely from rich black felt: clocks, lamps, tables, vases.

Launched in March and featured at Design 55 on Designday, these tactile creations exude an invitation to run up and give their fuzzy outlines a cuddle.

Idealog has been covering the most interesting people, businesses and issues from the fields of innovation, design, technology and urban development for over 12 years. And we're asking for your support so we can keep telling those stories, inspire more entrepreneurs to start their own businesses and keep pushing New Zealand forward. Give over $5 a month and you will not only be supporting New Zealand innovation, but you’ll also receive a print subscription and a copy of the new book by David Downs and Dr. Michelle Dickinson, No. 8 Recharged (while stocks last).
