Design is not the narrow application of formal skills,
it is a way of thinking - Chris Pullman

At New Zealand's premier furniture design school, we teach the fine art of design with a purpose. We craft contemporary designers and furniture artists out of students who come to us with a creative spark and a desire to make beautiful, useful things.

Just like designing fine furniture, inspiring fine furniture designers requires design skill, innovation and technical finesse - the building blocks of our two-year diploma course. In our programme, you'll forge a personal design aesthetic and unleash your creativity in solid form, gaining a unique skill set with immense application in today's 'better-by-design' world.

Come on in! Take a look around. Be inspired by those who have gone before you and our passion for fine furniture design.
