When Powersurge designer Andrea Harradine visited Nilufar Gallery in Milan last year it inspired a completely new design pathway for the company.

The Italian gallery exhibits some of the most exquisitely crafted items in Italy’s design heritage and Andrea was blown away by the standard of craftsmanship and attention to detail.

Powersurge was already deeply immersed in work with architects and designers to create bespoke fitouts using refined craftsmanship in metal, but when Andrea saw the Italian workmanship on small design pieces the penny finally dropped.

“Here was this incredible, inspiring array of items for the home. The craftsmanship on display was just wonderful, as was the evident respect for gorgeous detailing which is part of the culture there. It made us see and understand the relationship between these smaller pieces and our larger-scale works.”

Naturally, the next step was to bring Powersurge’s commitment to crafting techniques, design and materials to smaller scale, stand-alone pieces. Fortunately it wasn’t a stretch: for years the Powersurge workshop and family home has been full of small pieces and details the designers worked up for themselves – items which clients and friends were constantly asking for!

Therefore, creating the collectionwas a very organic process and it fulfils the need for those well-designed and executed smaller accessory items.

“Over the years we've worked on many interiors where we've needed to build smaller pieces to finish a room when nothing quite right could be sourced. This collection is the result of years of ideas percolating and refining, years spent working with architects and interior designers and experimenting with the limits of our materials.”

The aesthetic is a natural extension of Powersurge’s participation in collaborative projects. It includes brass-framed mirrors, bookends, magazine racks, pegs, hooks, shelves and trestle table legs – all in Powersurge’s inimitable refined style.

“We feel this is an accessible collection” says Andrea, “with function woven into every element of form – these are pieces we hope people will use, that will become a part of the way they inhabit their homes, and enrich that habitation in some small way.” 

The collection is now available to shop on their new-look website powersurge.co.nz. The carefully curated product line sits seamlessly alongside their larger-scale work and means everyone can now have a piece of finely crafted metal artistry.

So what’s next for Powersurge? Andrea says she’s happy to let the new product offering grow and is wary of pinning herself down to expanding the collection in line within specific timeframes or seasons – “we would like to continue the line in the spirit it began!” she laughs.
