Urbis Design Day 2012 Logo


On March 24th it’s time for this years top design event of the year; Urbis Design Day. On this day New Zealand’s top creative talent will team up with leading showrooms around Auckland to produce a series of eclectic and inspirational installations. This years theme is ‘Colour in Motion’ which will be freely interpreted by the designer pairings.


For anyone with an interest in design this is a day not to be missed! It showcases the latest in design trends and is an innovative collaboration between talented New Zealand designers and some of the country’s finest showrooms.

“Urbis Design Day is one of the most anticipated dates on the design calendar - it’s the big day out for the design world. It’s a fun and engaging experience and an amazing platform for the creative industries to step out and showcase their original designs and thinking.”

(Urbis editor Nicole Stock)


Essenze will be one of the showrooms represented for the third year in a row. This year we are collaborating with designer Rachel Lovelace to create a unique experience in our showroom. The main theme is “Do You Think You Know Your Style,” a humourous and exciting journey where our visitors will identify with a design style or discover  a new one!


During the day our showroom will be filled to the ceiling with New Zealand design and some of  our key designers who will be in store to join in the fun.  New Zealands foremost designer David Trubridge will host a Question & Answer session with up and coming New Zealand designers, including Timothy John, Duncan Rooney and Well Groomed Fox.


While you stroll around the store among different styles – be sure to have a glass of wine (or non-alcoholic) and a tasty snack at the bar. Also, don’t forget to sign up for our newsletter in the guestbook on the way out to receive a free voucher!
