Design Mobel Goes Global

Tauranga bed and furniture maker Design Mobel has launched the first of its Okooko global concept stores in Wellington and Hong Kong, with more to follow in the US later this year. Okooko stores integrate award winning NZ design and sustainable NZ manufacture, with a focus on Design Mobel’s trademarked Bodyfit Sleep System – personalised bedroom spaces made from all-natural materials. The name Okooko comes from an old Maori word meaning to cradle in arms. The Wellington store is located at the corner of Blair and Wakefield streets.
