Scott Fitzsimons Studio is a strategic multidisciplinary design office based in New Zealand, with a focus on creating original and meaningful objects, spaces and brands.
Our passion lies in the creation of products with an underlying philosophy of simplicity, timelessness and permanence. Our work is not based on fashion or trends, but rather, is authentic and honest.
A deep understanding and passion for materials and processes is the driver behind the studio achieving a high level of detail and craftsmanship in our work. We are uncompromising in our pursuit of quality.
We design products that are durable, functional and engaging, combining innovative functionality with a restraint and visual reduction in aesthetics, and meticulous attention to detail.
We are devoted to designing products that are environmentally and socially responsible.
In addition to our particular interest and experience in furniture and product design, our office also undertakes work in the fields of exhibition design, interior design, brand design and creative direction. We welcome work with companies of all sizes.
