New this weeeeeeeek! So excited it's Room 2 flat pack furniture by local designer Jamin Vollebregt
Now I've known Jamin for a while now but sadly I had no idea he was this talented. He's the most humble lovely guy I think I've met. His work is simply excellent. I am the gleeful proud owner of a playhouse with slide which he designed for the shop. The kids in the neighborhood are stoked with it too. Here's a wee bit about Jamin...

Jamin Vollebregt established Room Two in 2004. The company, which has a workshop in Newtown, Wellington, is mostly involved in furniture design, but Room Two also takes on industrial design projects that fit the company's vision of sustainable design. Jamin Vollebregt studied industrial design at Massey University, and he graduated with a bachelor of Industrial Design in 2004. During Christmas 2003/2004, Jamin worked at Cicada Studios, the furniture incubator established by David Trubridge in the
Hawkes Bay.

The Pop Out range is Room Two's first manufactured range. Room Two has undertaken corporate and private commissions in Wellington, including furniture for Peoples Coffee, a fairtrade coffee roastery and espresso bar in Newtown, Wellington. Room Two is currently working on a second range of plywood and pine furniture which will be manufactured next year.
