Talking Design with David Moreland

When asked about his design philosophy, David Moreland says that, at its core, “I don’t think my design philosophy has changed, I still like elegant, simple looking pieces that have a unique twist”. Part of an exciting wave of Kiwi designers, we had a quick chat with Moreland about his latest offerings.

David Moreland creates sleek, innovative furniture and lighting pieces. The New Zealand based designer’s collection to date includes solid oak pendant lights; powder coated steel bookends in soft grey that resemble cloud formations; and a space saving ‘Shadow’ mirror designed to float seamlessly within the corner of a room. Adding to the studio’s growing list of subtle, intuitive pieces in 2016 are the two Helix and Area tables.

“The idea behind the Helix table was to try and have an accurately engineered piece still appear soft and light,” says Moreland. The tables’ legs rotate gently inwards, giving its symmetrical form some interesting, asymmetrical shadows. The Helix table is available with either black or white matt powder coat, combined with either a clear or smoke great glass, or oak plywood.

The Area table offers a different, slightly more minimal aesthetic with a square top, continuous curved edges and a strong X-shaped edge that runs around the underside of the table. “I really like the large radiuses on the bottom corners of the Area tables,” says Moreland. “They help to alleviate what could be a heavy looking base, instead creating attractive, fluid lines.”
