Designers Speak®️ - a Conversation with Jamie McLellan

Jamie McLellan is Head of Design for AllBirds in San Francisco where he has managed to design the woollen shoe that the New York Times calls the go-to uniform of anyone who is anyone in Silicon Valley. 

Jamie has crafted an enviable range and variety of products. The Candelabra lamp produced during his tenure at Tom Dixon in London. A bike frame for Avanti, furniture pieces for Resident, beer taps, sails for boats for Neil Pryde in Hong Kong, meal trays for airlines, a biodegradable coffin and an impossibly expensive concept for a chair made from an aerogel material invented by Nasa. 

After Jamie's presentation he will be be joined by Prof Tony Parker FDINZ, ONZM, his lecturer at Massey University; and Kelvin Soh FDINZ, DDMMYY for a conversation on the intersection of fashion, start ups and industrial design.
