Over the course of the next 6 weeks the UK will host the 2015 Ruby World Cup and New Zealand, the most successful team in the history of all sport with a breath-taking style of play, are favourites to retain the trophy. As a result New Zealand will be the focus of the world’s attention and to take advantage the NZ High Commission will be hosting Trade & Enterprise networking events for NZ businesses and their UK based clients.
Resident, our NZ based supplier, very kindly invited us to watch the opening ceremony and first game at the High Commission. First we were treated to a traditional Maori welcome before watching the game in the penthouse, which situated on the 18th floor of the Pall Mall building offered unrivalled panoramic views of central London.
Established in Auckland in 2011, Resident design manufacture and distribute a beautiful collection of lighting and furniture for commercial and domestic environments, see below. Their style and ethos revolves around authentic design, bold materiality and exceptional fabrication.
We are very proud to count Resident amongst our suppliers and absolutely recommend that anybody unfamiliar with their work should take the opportunity to visit MULTIPLEXwhere they will be exhibiting at the Old Selfridges Hotel. It promises to be the immersive, multi-sensory department store of tomorrow and is only showing from 18th September to 15th October.
Our thanks go to Resident for our generous invitation and the NZ High Commission for being such fantastic hosts.
