Elevator Pitch, brought to you by Flick

As part of our Elevator Pitch series in partnership with Flick, we gave Daryl Briggs a little longer than an elevator ride to pitch Aquafortus, which removes water from waste. 

Design reflects our heritage and identity. So what role does Māoridom play in New Zealand’s design identity? Who is able to do it? What principles need to be abided by? And how does a young country like New Zealand embrace the modern world while retaining its traditions? In part three of a series, we float down the country’s cultural currents with craftsman Carin Wilson and RCG Limited associated director Andy Florkowski and director John Lenihan.
