The noho chair embodies fundamental values that should exist in every product produced in today's world. Committed to using up-cycled post-consumer plastic waste, it inspires a responsible shift to circular material flows and a move beyond the discomforting ‘make-waste’ model.

Hello Cup

Traditionally menstrual cups have been in the ugly 'out of sight, out of mind' category when it came to retail - relegated to the bottom shelf.

Hello Cup aims to drive change around how periods are discussed and have driven a campaign to change the conversation to "people with periods" given that a number of people have periods but do not identify as women.

Evora Mask

Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) is a disease that impacts patients with a breadth of implications.

Prior to diagnosis, patients are generally in a poor state managing daytime sleepiness; morning headaches; forgetfulness; difficulty concentrating; irritability; difficulty making decisions; difficulty learning and relationship strain.

OSA patients manage additional comorbidities including diabetes, high blood pressure and depression. OSA sufferers are six times more likely to be involved in road traffic accidents. OSA is not just a snoring problem.

Commercial Bay Sculptural Seat

LandLAB created a family of seating elements for the ‘Sky Terrace’ rooftop space on the podium of the newly completed Commercial Bay tower.

Set against the backdrop of the Waitematā, the concept is informed by visual associations between the islands, mountains and maritime elements upon the harbour.
