What we do

We create innovative furniture and lighting for homes and businesses.  We develop our own range of products as well as working with a variety of clients on their interior/exterior projects.  We design with care and attention to detail.  We search for materials and manufacturers with the best social and environmental credentials.  All of our products are made here in New Zealand.

Who are we

In 2011 industrial designers Rebecca Asquith and Tim Wigmore teamed up to exhibit their latest designs under a new brand; Designtree.  Combining their talents and strengths the business has expanded into a nimble design team with strong networks of high quality suppliers, manufacturers and retailers.  Trees grow strongest in forests and we are excited to be collaborating with other designers and institutions who share our appreciation for thoughtful and beautiful design.
