A keen eye for potential has seen Paul Roest’s Industrial Design NZ take forgotten furniture and reclaimed timber from trash to treasure
Paul Roest’s Industrial Design NZ
You’ve probably seen some of Paul Roest’s wood creations without realising it. He’s crafted tables, chairs, bar leaners, entertainment units, shelving, bedside tables and office furniture for many supermarkets, cafes, retail stores, beauty salons and individual clients. He’s built conference tables for SkyCity, lunchroom cafe-style tables for Air NZ and stunning rustic store counters for franchise Habitual Fix. That chunky table John Campbell records his Checkpoint show from? Yep, that was Paul, too. He lives with his family in Kaukapakapa, northwest of Auckland.
