Surface Design for Furnishings

Surface design for in-house furnishings collection – Pūhoro Collection. Pūhoro Collection is inspired by the elongated koru also known as the split koru (pictured below) which is typically used in Māori moko (tattoo) re thighs. Pūhoro takes on many formations joining the story of ones life. I wanted to experiment with this design concept with a degree of fusion as I’m Māori and Pākehā (European). A simple depiction of the Pūhoro and meaning is as below:
