Design55 was established in 2008 by Auckland art dealer Gary Langsford and TV Producer Vicki Vuleta on the ground floor of a converted warehouse at 55 Upper Queen street in Auckland City.
Design55 specialises in unique and limited edition items as well as select vintage pieces. A number of important international designers were approached to bring together an eclectic curated collection. Vicki and Gary travel to Europe often to personally source unique furniture and decorative objects.
Designers include Fornasetti from Milan, Campana Brothers from Sao Paulo, Yves Klein from Paris, Cenedese from Murano, Fish Design from Milan and Gufram from Italy. Local designers include the Dibble Studio and Luke Jacomb glass.
Calling on her background in interior design, Vicki also offers a complete design service including everything from small apartments to large offices. Design55 is also able to offer art consultancy services through gallery directer Gary Langsford and clients of Design55 have privileged access to previews of gallery exhibitions and visits to the artists studio.
