Sarah Eaton – Hokitika Gorge

The inspiration for this design is Kōawaawa or gorge near Hokitika on the West Coast, South Island, New Zealand.

The design concept was to capture the essence of the place, specifically:

  • colour
  • texture
  • beauty
  • light
  • movement
  • power
  • life
  • impact

The design was developed using a wide range of Formica laminates to capture the colour and textures present. Also a range of finishes were utilised, to provide a range of light reflective levels and add to the movement and impact.
