Founded by Simon James in 1998 as a vehicle to distribute his own work, the Simon James Design shop carries cutting-edge lines such as Established & Son and Barber Osgerby. James, who has a degree in spatial design from the Auckland University of Technology, also exhibits works by New Zealand designers (both established and emerging), including David Trubridge, Purple South, Bob McDonald, David Moreland, and Candywhistle; go to Simon James Design to view the offerings.
