Resident logo

Resident is a contemporary design and manufacturing company from New Zealand.

Established in 2011 by Simon James and Scott Bridgens, Resident is a globally focussed design company from New Zealand. Residents mission is to offer products with an unparalleled level of creativity and innovation, coupled with the benefits of fast global delivery.

Our furniture and lighting is for design-conscious people who are passionate about the way they live. The highest level of refinement is pursued in each object, while also holding the unique fingerprint of the designer. We balance the desire for new ideas and progression with an appreciation for simple forms. The result is objects that can harmonise with a room or act as a deliberate contrast.

Resident works with a select group of talent across multiple disciplines including industrial design, architecture, furniture design and sculpture. Each designer’s instinct for experimentation keeps the group fluid and adaptive to new technologies, while also cementing our reputation for innovation. As makers of furniture and lighting for both commercial and residential spaces, Resident’s practice spans multiple scales and contexts. Regardless of where our focus is, three founding beliefs guide our work. Resident places human needs and desires at the centre of it all. Our collective understanding is that an object should improve the everyday. We design products that help you to host, work, share, recharge, relax and collapse. As architects of objects, our interpretation of value begins with craftsmanship. We carefully consider detail, push the limits of material, and are inspired by the elemental forms found in nature. Each design is a living representation of the time and application of skills that’s involved in making an object functional and beautiful. Design that is resilient and admired; cared for long after its first owner. We consider structural harmony and account for how a piece of furniture might endure wear and tear during the course of its life.

Resident’s manufacturing and distribution is managed through three locations: Auckland, London and Los Angeles. All Resident designs are developed, engineered and fabricated in-house through special infrastructure. This means we have full control over technique, quality and scale. It also ensures fast, reliable delivery times for our worldwide network of stockists, and for orders you make through our online store. In many cases, our products are shipped within 24 hours of an order. We make it easy to put the best design and innovation in interiors around the world.
