Kiwi & Pom design.
Our work is diverse spanning objects, interiors, branding and creative strategic positioning, with each discipline informing the other.
We believe in simple and beautiful design solutions that last. We achieve this by balancing strategic insight with conceptual thinking, creative intuition and experience. A preoccupation with colour and materials embodies our work and is often the starting point of any project. Our studio enables us to experiment freely with paint and finishes, models and prototypes and this is fundamental to how we design.
We are as comfortable on a building site reviewing a space as we in a factory checking a prototype or print workshop. We are fascinated by production and process and enjoy working closely with expert manufacturers and craftsmen to ensure the best outcome.
Our level of involvement in a project varies depending on the client’s needs. We enjoy the opportunity to work from concept to completion but we are also happy to assist with specific stages of a job. We understand that collaboration results in better design so we work closely with our clients, all of whom have a direct relationship with the company founders - Kam and Emma Young.
About the Founders.
Husband and wife team, Kam and Emma Young, founded Kiwi & Pom in 2008 with a shared ambition to create products and spaces with a purpose.
Kam (the Kiwi) was born and raised in New Zealand where he studied Industrial Design. He went on to work for a number of internationally renowned design consultancies in Asia and America before settling in London. Kam has a keen eye for proportion and form and a practical approach to design.
Emma (the Pom) studied Graphic Design and Product Design at Central Saint Martin’s School of Art. Post graduation she was employed as a future strategist for Orange. She also worked in advertising and as a freelance illustrator before co-founding Kiwi & Pom and Falcon Enamelware. Emma has a strong instinct for colour and material sensibility and these are always her starting point for any design.
