Rolf Benz, a household name in the international luxury furniture market, is settling into its new home in Auckland.
Frobisher Auckland, New Zealand’s exclusive stockist of the European, hand-crafted line, has opened its first North Island showroom in Parnell.
Showroom manager Beks Sorrell says that Rolf Benz furniture will appeal to clients wanting to explore European trends, as well as enjoy its fully customisable design.
“The showroom is an immersive place where people have the opportunity to pause and explore how Rolf Benz challenges traditional living arrangements and notions of space, whilst providing both comfort and luxury. Rolf Benz is where European design, innovation, fashion and art meet,” she says. “Each piece is created to complement your space and lifestyle. Our clients aren’t just interested in good looks, they want to explore bespoke design and construction and how Rolf Benz invests in sustainable production principles. They’re interested in the process of how we’ll personally customise exclusive pieces of furniture to create spaces that people long to be in.”
The Parnell showroom on the corner of Bath and Earle Streets, is an expertly curated space where works by emerging artist Polly Gilroy, communicate how Rolf Benz furniture can be complemented by fine art to create a unique living space. Select pieces from celebrity designer Kelly Hoppen, who has worked with clients such as David and Victoria Beckham, are also being stocked in store.
“The chance to share insights with Auckland-based interior designers and architects about the latest international trends and how they can be incorporated into their upcoming projects is exciting,” says Markus Acker, Rolf Benz sales manager. “New Zealand tastes merge well with Rolf Benz design principles and aesthetics.”
Frobisher Auckland is located at 7-9 Earle Street in the former Icon showroom, and will be open weekdays from 8.30am-5pm.
