MIG (Made in Germany) is an Auckland based company committed to making sustainable, affordable and innovative contemporary furniture for design minded New Zealanders. Founded by Berlin couple interior architect, Anet Kuhla, and concept designer, Luka Hinse, after they flew the nest for an adventure down under in 2007. MIG has since become a con-joined creative platform for presenting their work both nationally and internationally.

Inspired by one minute sculptures and the idea of creating one product a day this eclectic design duo came up with simple, raw, bauhaus inspired furniture that is both inexpensive and good quality. A rarely seen collaboration – good design and good prices- MIG happily fills this gap in the New Zealand design market whilst allowing it’s creators, who also work in professional design consulting, some ‘hands on’ enjoyment.

Sourced, crafted and distributed locally, MIG products inhabit in the humble with a ‘what you see is what you get’ quality. Made from industrial materials like Prefabricated Plywood panels with exposed edging and Form Ply which is usually used for concrete pouring means each MIG object and product has a deconstructed refined character giving each piece a neutral backdrop for ones curios to imbue.

Whilst continually developing and crafting good looking objects, MIG also acts as a multifaceted creative studio motivated to create design solutions that add value to the community around them. Presenting curated pop-up shops and producing events for a variety of forward thinking clients, Made in Germany is an ever expanding company with malleable extensions reaching out in search of progressive creativity.

The first edition of furniture was released at the PROTO.type 14 exhibition in November 2014 at Silo 6, Wynyard Quarter, Auckland.
