I'm not scared to tell anyone that Workroom/Douglas + Bec are my very favourite NZ designers. So when I see an email from Bec telling me their new Douglas + Bec store at BLOC is finally open, I have to sort of immediately stop what I was doing (sorry, paying clients) and share.
I plan to go visit this week. See you there? I'll be the one touching the cabinetry inappropriately.
Ahem. I see you, hand-stamped drawstring bags.
Some people enjoy going to the movies or playing sports, I enjoy staring at shelving units with chunky copper fittings.
Oh, and if you haven't yet heard of BLOC, it's sort of like Disneyland for lovers of contemporary design. One, two, three levels of eeeeeeee-inducing lighting, furniture, homeware, stationery and more - Douglas + Bec bring their insanely good taste to join Bo Concept, Citta Design, Collected by Leeann Yare, Pencil Boutique, World Beauty and Cool Food in the space.
