NEW ZEALAND’S DESIGN HONOURED
IN THE 1.618 GUIDE SELECTION
If you happen to have attended the 4th edition of 1.618 Sustainable Luxury at Le Carreau du Temple, Paris, you cannot have missed the creations presented by Moaroom.
First, there were David Trubridge’s famous Coral lamps. The New Zealand-based designer presented for the very first time a retrospective exhibition of his work, for the tenth anniversary of the Coral lamp he unveiled in Milan in 1994. He specially created a monumental 3 meter diameter lamp which he installed at the heart of his exhibition.

Next to this imposing lamp, Moaroom had placed several tables created by another designer, Roderick Fry, who presented his Pi table. With the launch of the Pi system, Moaroom proves that European designers are willing to cooperate with local craftsmen, using wood coming from local sustainably managed forests or recovered wood, and to allow consumers to complete and customize their own Made in France furniture.
Roderick Fry’s Pi tables
Founded in 2004 by the Franco-New Zealander couple Laurence Varga and Roderick Fry, Paris-based agency Moaroom has presented for 10 years New Zealand’s best designers.
Created beyond the existing standards arising from trends and fashions, the objects exhibited by Moaroom are inspired by nature and made with respect for the environment.
