As one of the only New Zealand furniture designers to exhibit solo at the annual Milan ‘Salone Satellite’ show for two consecutive years, 28-year-old designer Phil Cuttance has received serious international attention of late – most recently translating into a global distribution deal.

The designer has just signed a worldwide manufacturing and distribution deal with an American company for his ‘trophy hangers’, which will be distributed globally through retailers including New York’s Museum of Modern Art.

Cuttance manages the design workshop at Massey University’s School of Design in Auckland and while his designs are intended for the production line, Cuttance also insists on making the prototypes of his work and strongly values the process as a fundamental idea generator.
