“We are excited to have interior architect Rufus Knight representing New Zealand on the tour this year. The incredible work that Rufus is doing is helping to shape the future of interiors in this country,” said Davina Harper, Dulux colour and design specialist.
Dulux DIAlogue on Tour is run in collaboration with the Design Institute of Australia (DIA) and the Designers Institute of New Zealand (DINZ).
“Now in its second year, the program gives five design professionals the opportunity to travel to London and Stockholm for an enlightening education from European and Scandinavian design talent,” as reported in the article.
“The tour is a valuable opportunity for design talent from across Australia and New Zealand to be part of an inspiring cross-pollination of ideas that will undoubtedly bring new perspective and ambition to their future work,” said Philip Vodanovich, Dulux NZ’s commercial manager.
Rufus Knight “graduated from studying Interior Architecture at Victoria University’s School of Architecture and Design in Wellington in 2008. After finishing his degree, he held an associate position at award-winning practice Fearon Hay Architects.”
“Following a stint abroad in Europe, notably working for Vincent Van Duysen Architects in Antwerp, Rufus was awarded the Designers Institute of New Zealand’s highest achievement for spatial design, the Purple Pin, in 2015.”
Last year he opened “his own Auckland-based studio, Knight Associates, which concentrates on interior architecture and design,” reports the article.
