One more sleep until the Urbis Designday! What's been happening with our installation with Kathryn Wilson Footwear and Coastal Design? Check out the Urbis interview with Jo Eddington below...
When the three-way collaboration between Coastal Design, shoe designer Kathryn Wilson and leading concierge company Touch of Spice was announced, everyone was fascinated to see what would emerge. With Urbis Designday only a few days away, Urbis spoke to designer and owner of Coastal Design, Jo Eddington, about what`s in wait for Designday guests visiting the showroom.
Q Can you describe your installation in five words?
???You`ll have to come see!
Q What is waiting for Designday guests when they arrive at Coastal Design?
Im pretty excited to make our debut at Urbis Designday 2012. I won`t give too much away though! We`ve taken the theme Colour in Motion and put our own unique and fun twist on it, so expect vibrant, rich colour???drama ???and a few quirky surprises!
Q What has been the best thing about working with Kathryn Wilson and Touch of Spice?
The best thing is the incredible buzz and excitement around creating something unique and fun for our first Designday. Kathryn is a great friend so I was thrilled to collaborate with her as my creative partner. She`s an incredibly talented designer with amazing ideas ??? anyone who knows Kath knows how infectious her energy is so that has been great. As soon as we sat down together we immediately knew what we wanted to do and we set about bringing our vision for Designday to life. That`s when Jacqui and the Touch of Spice team stepped in. It is brilliant to have them involved; their ability to pull off first class events is renowned New Zealand wide, so they are taking care of every last detail to bring our ideas to life. How lucky are we! We are also fortunate to have some fantastic sponsors on board including BMW, Veuve Cliquot, M.A.C, Westpac Private Bank, Kim Crawford Wines, Natural Tree Products, Vide Flora and more.
Q Any stressful moments in the preparation?
None so far - just lots of good energy! We`ve got a cool support team working crazy hours this week to make the day great and we`re all just really excited. I`m looking forward to seeing everyone and hoping they enjoy our installation, as we plan on having seriously good fun on Saturday.
