We collaborate with some of NZ’s most respected designers.
Main Design Guy and Founder of Fletcher Design, Fletcher Vaughan, is self-taught gaining his skills, and strong design perspective, by practice and observation. Vaughan established his NZ studio in 1999 and very quickly became recognised for his distinctive design style.
Vaughan follows no rule-book yet he is a leader and expert in his field. The fusion of innovative sculptural elements with function and practicality is omnipresent throughout his design offering. Instinctive vision and transformative thinking has allowed Vaughan to work with a raft of iconic businesses and their professional environments throughout NZ and globally since 2012.
Jamie McLellan is Head of Design for Allbirds in San Francisco, where he’s been responsible for building the brand’s design ethos and product language.
The early part of Jamie’s design career was spent working in Italy, Hong Kong and Hawaii, before eventually ending up in London working closely with internationally acclaimed designer Tom Dixon.
Jamie then returned home to set up his own product and furniture design consultancy based in Auckland, New Zealand. His clients included established global brands such as Cathay Pacific, Neil Pryde and Tom Dixon, along with innovative start-ups like Bodha, Resident, and Allbirds, which he ultimately joined as the brand’s first Head of Design. Jamie has worked with Fletcher Design since 2008.
The objects Jamie has designed are wide ranging – from lighting to luxury water craft, olympic bicycles to beer taps, furniture to woollen footwear. Often celebrating the engineering within, these designs can all be described as minimal with a singular maximal twist, or in Jamie’s words “just the right amount of nothing”.
With a career spanning almost twenty years – as well as three continents – Lance McGregor has worked with design luminaries Tom Dixon, Matthew Hilton and Fabien Baron before setting up his own studio, McGregor & McGregor in 2009.
Born in the seaside city of Tauranga, New Zealand and now based in the pretty suburban town of Montclair, New Jersey, nature has had a huge influence on McGregor’s work from day one. Combining materials like glass, metal, stone and marble, McGregor creates textural yet minimal pieces that are always imbued with a sense of whimsy. A self-described jack-of-all-trades, McGregor’s designs include everything from furniture to fragrance bottles.
