Incubation in isolation: how distance creates the difference in New Zealand Product Design

SMYTHE, Michael;

Full Article:

Isolation informs design process in New Zealand. Models from the indigenous Maori culture are explored along with the outdoor lifestyle, a record of building on overseas concepts, a capacity for cross-disciplinary teamwork, clarity and a freshness born of detachment, and a desire for a small, distant country to be noticed. Research undertaken for the author’s recent book (Smythe 2011) set out to identify drivers of New Zealand product design in relevant contextual circumstances. This paper extracts key findings with greater clarity and applies more academic rigour.
