“It’s been a pleasure working with Tim, who brings an international perspective to Rakino. His experience in furniture, lighting and interior design enables him to develop new product ideas with an understanding of commercial demands. We have enjoyed developing this chair and refining our production methods to achieve the light, simple structure that defines it.” – Katerina Zachariades, design director at Morgan.
Juxtaposing soft sculpted upholstery with a strong, low line frame, the new family of furniture features crisp timber detailing, emphasised by a clean linear structure. The design uses CNC machining processes, but achieves a hand-finished look.
“I wanted to create something that felt quiet and inviting, that could feel right in your home, while being appropriate for hard working contract environments.” – Tim Rundle.
Morgan has a tradition of naming its collections after places, which Tim embraced. He explains:
“It only felt right we choose a New Zealand name, being designed by a Kiwi, albeit London based. Rakino is one of a cluster of small islands in the Hauraki Gulf, the body of water surrounding Auckland’s east coast. There people are able to escape the busy city, a short boat ride leaving you with a pleasant sense of isolation and calm. A comfortable low lounge chair in a busy hotel or workplace could, I hope, provide the same feeling.”
