A Personal Recollection Of Four Years Work In The Crown Lynn Design Studio From 1978 To 1982

  • Juliet Hawkins

Abstract

In the last two or three decades many New Zealanders have collected and treasured consumer goods manufactured and often designed in this country in the post-war period. These items are valued not necessarily for their quality but because they were local and symbolic of emergent understandings of national autonomy and distinctiveness. In a time when global corporations flood national markets with low-cost generic goods produced where there is low-cost labour, there is an international movement by ‘baby boomer’ collectors to conserve items produced in their nations when they were young.
