Finally 'Shapes' is in production! Flat packed, made out of recycled cardboard and put together with interlocking shapes. It entertains children aged 1-10. The table top is available in four plain colours, raspberry, strawberry, blueberry, and gooseberry. Table tops can be customised with screenprinted names or graphics.
'Shapes' is packaged in a party size pizza box, great for gift wrapping and sending by post. SUSANNA + JUDD [ENOKI] designed 'Shapes' for their children to use in the family living room. Its functional, recycled, structural, entertaining and mixes well with family homes and children spaces.
We have been designing rugs since 2000 - Ranges and oneoff's. They have always been made of 100% NZ wool. We wanted to take this a step further.... In 2008 Judd + Susanna [ENOKI] came up with the idea and imagery that has become 'SOUP'. A range of alphabet symbols designed to be applied on a range of media.
In a group brainstorming session - the desire to hand make the rugs - using recycled materials was the main inspiration behind embroidering the 'SOUP' images into recycled cotton carpet underlays manufactured by The Smith Family.
It was a desire to escape the stress, speed and strain of commercial deadlines and create by hand - SLOW DESIGN - SLOW MAKE. The use of a ready made, recycled and "manufactured on mass" carpet underlay appealed. The thick felted underlay has inherent structural + acoustic properties, making it highly functional. We wanted to bring it out from hiding under other carpets + layers. It's simple, clean aesthetic is enhanced with our simple, totally bespoke embroidery. We do not want any 2 pieces to be alike.
The use of recycled materials and a small carbon footprint resulted from a process of SLOW DESIGN - SLOW MAKE. A beautiful product made from a utilitarian product which has been personalised by human interaction. Manufactured in one size 1.8 x 2.5 with no wastage.
The project outcomes are a cost effective, accessible + useable designer product for the craftsperson in us all. A product ENOKI intended to manufacture in collaboration with various community groups, with proceeds going to the organisations.

#1 In the jungle, a butterfly touched my face, and LILY stole my heart.
#2 We enjoyed a long lunch, then finally ROSE opened up.
#3 The wrinkles on her face did not hide POPPY'S ageless beauty.
#4 The opulence of the Persian palace was heightened by the dancing HYACINTH.
#5 Pop went the cork, DAPHNE was always present at these special occasions.
#6 I was nervous at my first lesson, CAMELLIA took control and showed me all the steps.
#7 It was my trademark, a CARNATION on my lapel.
#8 The GINGER SPECTABILUS tea, settled my stomach and initiated complete calm.
#9 We hunted all day, but still the SILVAN RED remained illusive.
#10 It was a stirring song, the ANTHERIUM had my heart welling up with joy.
#11 It was time to change my shirt, a SNOWBALL had fallen on my head.
#12 The trail became steeper, but the beautiful HYDRANGEAS lightened our mood.
#13 From the moment I heard her singing voice, LISSIANTHUS had me captivated by her spell.
#14 I watched her gently sway in the afternoon breeze, I always did have a thing for BRUNEIS.
#15 It had been a hard day, DAISY delicately stroked my forehead and I was rejuvinated.
#16 The opulence of the Persian palace was heightened by the dancing HYACINTH.
#17 I lazed in the sun with an idle mind, DAHLIA woke me with her splendor.
#18 Once the candles were lit, VIOLET swept me off my feet.
#19 Our field of dreams was abundant with TULIPS.
#20 In the Winter rain, GLORIOSA shuddered with delight.
#21 It was a dream, we were small and walking through a forest of LOTUS PODS.
#22 A delicate aroma caught me by surprise, PEONY had entered the room.
#23 We climbed to the top of the tower, but still IVY wanted to climb higher.
#24 She told me there was a surprise for dinner, mouthwatering CRABCLAWS.
#25 We spent hours in the sunshine enjoying our beautiful GARDENIAS.
#26 Some spoke of the hideous beast but MONSTERIA was breathtakingly beautiful.
#27 I arrived at the island with trouble in my heart, her HYBISCUS and her song free my soul.
#28 Her FIG entree left me wanting more.
#29 We celebrated the birth of our ninth with ORCHIDS, as we always did.
#30 Down in Missisippi the Jazz was heaving and the MAGNOLIAS were intoxicating.
#31 The FREESIA in her hair fluttered in the breeze, as I watched her sleep.
#32 The orchestra music became even more dramatic when the TUBEROSE began to play.
#33 On balmy nights in CELOSIA BOMBAY the giant cicadas made a deafening racket.
#34 It felt really naughty, eating BOUVARDIA at midnight.
#35 We were itchy all over in the evening heat, until we applied our MOLLACCA BALM.
#36 There is only one way to steel a golden egg, climb a DODDAVINE to a giants keep.
#37 What a majestic sunrise, DELPHINIUM lifted her head to see.
#38 A foreboding darkness fell upon the forest, my glowing AMARYLLIS protected me that night.
#39 The AMARANTHUS stood next to the dais, and lifted our hearts with her presence.
#40 I twisted, struggled and turned, but HELICONIA held me firm in her gaze.
#41 Then STEPHANOTIS spoke, everyone listened with eager ears.
I remember the ALSTROMERIA in her hair, complimented her exotic smile.
