Michael Smythe - New Zealand by Design

Whilst in Auckland I had the pleasure of catching up with New Zealand industrial designer and author Michael Smythe and his partner Helen Schamroth. It was a delight to discuss our shared interest in local design history and to gain some insight into the long and winding road to publication. Michael inscribed my copy of his new book with a challenge that is similar to the one he received during a lunch time meeting with Peter Haythornthwaite many years ago (see back story of Michael's book).

Released recently New Zealand by Design comprehensively documents the history of New Zealand product design.

New Zealand industrial designer and author Michael Smythe signs a copy of his new book New Zealand by Design for PhD candidate Ian Wong.

In Melbourne get your copy at your local bookstore. Brunswick Street Bookstore in Fitzroy and the Coventry Bookstore in South Melbourne currently have copies.

To obtain a signed and inscribed copy from the author simply order through –cost NZ$60 for the book plus NZ$15 freight.
