In April 2016 we completed a fit-out alongside Stack Interiors for shipping company Maersk Line’s new Auckland premises. Having completed Maersk’s original fit-out some 10 years ago, it was a pleasure to be invited back to the drawing board.
Stack created sleek, well-appointed headquarters, specifying a range of furniture including Enea’s Lottus Conference chair, Office chair, Lounge chair and AL table. German manufacturer Wilde and Spieth’s Typus table, the Dual table by Andreu World, Arper’s Colina lounge chair and Catifa 46 chairs. Horm’s Albino occasional table, our own Panama modular seating and a custom built 6.5m boardroom table.
Maersk Line’s latest refurbishment is timeless, comfortable and sophisticated, and is sure to remain on-point for another decade.

Mobles114 unveiled two breathtaking collections at Salone del Mobile this year. With wire furniture currently so on-trend, the Spanish manufacturer delivered undeniable crowd-pleasers.
Martin Azua is the creative genius behind Rambla. Delicate to behold, Rambla’s tough, its namesake is the famous promenade in Barcelona which runs from the heart of the city to the port. Historically one could hire tables and chairs on the street, for a rest and a drink with a friend.
Azua works in Barcelona and combines teaching and product design, with interior design and temporary installations. Highly committed to the environment and society, his work is based on abstraction and experimentation. Among his more famous projects is the Basic House which has formed part of the permanent collection at the MOMA in New York since 2007.
Rambla is available in crisp green, yellow, charcoal and white. Manufactured from steel rod, its contemporary shape reinterprets tradition and the most cosmopolitan Mediterranean lifestyle. The chairs are roomy and comfortable, with relaxing arms and an optional polyurethane foam cushion.
Stackable Tube boasts a distinctive, well-resolved design. Gentle curves defy the industrial origins of the collection which is manufactured from continual steel tube. Available in a sophisticated colour palette of white, blue grey, black, chestnut brown, olive grey and anthracite, Tube is simple and smart, perfect for hospitality projects or residential interiors.
Tube is the brainchild of Eugeni Quitllet, a designer who is making a huge name for himself in Europe designing for the likes of Vondom, Kartell, and Lexon. With an international career that started with Philippe Stark, Quitllet now runs his own studio in Barcelona. Expressive and unique, Quitllet resists trends, he has been described as a tireless seeker and a lover of technology, defining himself as a ‘dreamsigner’, a designer and dreamer, following his own instinctual process.
Late last year one of our favourite design teams asked us to solve a meeting problem they were having with one of their clients. They were looking for a table system that would work in formal meeting rooms and also in more casual spaces, like the staff grazing area. Table for formal. Bar leaner for casual. Their brief was quite specific, and so, the J Series was born.
Iconic, stylish and practical. Functional, fashionable and serviceable. The J Series is all these things. The design is underpinned by the strong 50mmm tubular frame; available in either powder coat or stainless steel, and the choice of top is limited only by your imagination.
Come lean on the J Series at the UFL showroom. Just 10 minutes from downtown.
Usually, rock is an accelerated blues rhythm.
In this instance, however, Rafa Garcia’s Rock is a small family of tables inspired by the abundance, exuberance and optimism of the ’50s – an expressive and sensual project influenced by organic and biomorphic forms which popularized the pioneers of industrial design.
The Rock tables, like the musical style from which the name is taken, are characterised by a contemporary feel, and by the fusion of different styles – in this case visual rather than sonorous. Oak, mirror and smoked glass are the notes of a score that can create a personalised melody. Besides playing with the curves, volumes and materials, the different heights and extending table increase the versatility of the set. Click here for more information.
Horm again wowed us in Milan, this time with Lieve – the floating table. The force of gravity is a perception: the innovative material created by pairing wooden tiles cut by laser with felt creates the illusion of a drape supporting the table surface in tempered glass. The table top seems to float above the fabric and gravity seems to disappear for a moment.
