About Whirlwind Designs

Whirlwind is a Wellington based design business begun by Nick Blake and Michelle Fyson in 2011. We have backgrounds in theatre, film and design and work together to create an eclectic mix of design wares.

Some are assemblages of discarded materials crafted into new objects that pay homage to historical, traditional and international design. Others interpret our collections of objects in new ways.

Our environmental sympathies are expressed in our choice of materials and echo the surroundings where we work and live. All are created in the spirit of conscientious play! On our travels we also select a range of handcrafted items created by other artisans along with a unique range of craft materials

We hope you enjoy owning our designs as much as we enjoy making them. Our business is a family affair with all the crew pitching in to make it a success.

We are open to discussions on customised design work for specific locations.
