A design story, told by you

Città is proud to shape living spaces with their New Zealand-designed furniture and homeware. And now, the announcement of a partnership between Città and David Moreland Design offers a new potential for imagining interior spaces.

Beauty beyond function is a premise that Città was founded on. Curated moments in interior spaces should inspire joy, a moment of happiness or beauty. It is this premise that began a uniquely antipodean journey; pieces designed in New Zealand with a distinctly relaxed, modern yet timeless style.

“At Città we create objects with purpose. Whether an object’s purpose is to be functional or beautiful, or a bit of both, this philosophy has remained at our core since day one,” Città founder Margot Acland says.

Over the years, Città has diversified its range under the lead of textile designer Imogen Tunnicliffe who creates the seasonal ranges and, more recently, furniture designer David Moreland.

An exclusively New Zealand-designed furniture offering

Since 2009, Moreland has been designing furniture under his personal brand, David Moreland Design (DMD). This week marks the start of a new chapter with Moreland’s personal designs now available at Città.

The partnership is a natural fit with DMD further diversifying Città’s vast offering. The products celebrate elegance and function, seamlessly integrating into residential and commercial spaces.

“David Moreland Design at Citta products The brand will be launched with the Framed range, which is a collection that was originally conceived in 2003 and has since been used in Air New Zealand lounges, by AMI Insurance and gone into many residential projects, David explains.

The Framed range’s unmistakable silhouettes and proportions have led to its continued popularity over the years for both residential and commercial settings. “Like most of Città’s upholstered pieces, the Framed Armchair is made in New Zealand and able to be upholstered in a wide range of fabric options.”

“Following on from the Framed range, a further three ranges—including the S2 Stool, Elevation Tables and Platform Stool—will join the Città collection and be available from early August.”

When David joined Città a few years ago, his role was to develop the brand’s furniture offering—both designing collections and securing a sustainable supply chains both on and offshore production.

“Originally, we only purchased furniture for our collections. This quickly developed into us designing our own pieces when David joined us,” Margot says. “David’s designs have become the hallmark of our furniture range and to now have the privilege of bringing DMD pieces into Città’s collection is a great step forward.”

“It’s great to see the huge transition that we’ve been through as a company over the years as we established our furniture offering. We are now diversifying even further with the launch of these new ranges,” David says.

The S2 Stool range is available in three heights with a black or white frame and with or without an American oak plywood seat.

Blurring the line between residential and commercial applications

In the wake of covid and the ever-evolving move towards agile workspaces and remote working, employers are realising that they need their office environments to be more friendly and they’re putting a lot more emphasis on creating break out spaces with comfortable sofas and coffee tables—spaces with a more residential feel.

“That change has been something in the making for some time now as people work on laptops and devices and workplaces are much more flexible than they used to be. This year has seen a huge change in people’s experiences of working from home and remotely. I think that there has been a real shift as a greater proportion of us are—and will—spend more time working at home,” Margot says.

This blending of work and home life and the spaces in which we work and live becoming less focused on being either one or the other has underscored the launch of Città’s partnership with DMD.

“Città furniture, until now, has been mostly focused on the residential market but over the years, work and home life have blurred more quickly than we imagined. We are now operating in a changed environment in which commercial spaces are often designed to recreate settings that feel more residential," David says.

David’s pieces are designed for versatility, easily moving between residential and commercial settings. “The furniture we design for Città is a bit softer in material and colour palette than the David Moreland Design pieces. They are cut from the same cloth but they come from slightly different perspectives.”
