On the world stage, the fern is synonymous with New Zealand. It adorns our sports people’s uniforms, many of our biggest brands, and in the lush green expanse of our forests, its unfurling form is found behind almost every corner. This sense of opening, of nature offering up luxurious secrets, is captured in our Fern designs: smooth mirrors, reflecting the warm tones of reclaimed kauri, echoing the image of New Zealand’s many pristine lakes with the image of the ferns at their edges. This was what brought inspiration to this collection: the sight of ferns in nature, in the hair of a young girl, in the undergrowth of a sprawling forest, in the shadow of a snow tipped mountain.
Our commitment to sustainability fits seamlessly with the ethos of the team at Multiverse Design, our collaborators for this project. Founded on a strong code of sustainability and using locally made resources, their use of reclaimed and recycled timber in this collection ensures it has the lightest of footprints on our planet. Moreover, the attention to detail in each hand-crafted piece means these beautiful designs may look delicate but will last. Combined with the metal mirrors from Powersurge Metalworks, the Fern collection is a snapshot of one of New Zealand’s most iconic symbols. It is timeless nature, reflected and captured for you to enjoy.
