Gary Hunt was one of the go to furniture designers in the art and design scene during the 1990s. Hunt collaborated with high end local fashion houses to create bespoke designs executed in his material of choice – steel. This unique mirror was created for iconic New Zealand fashion label Zambesi.
Zambesi co-founder Neville Findlay collaborated with Gary Hunt to produce a design that would align with the Zambesi aesthetic of the 1990s. Other memorable collaborations include Hunt's long-term work with Chris Cherry from Workshop on the interiors of boutique showrooms throughout New Zealand.
In the late 1980s and 90s steel fabricator Gary Hunt was at the height of his furniture design career, his work was showcased in several contemporary furniture exhibitions. His mild steel 'Bladerunner' chair was selected for the progressive 1988 'New Zealand Contemporary Furniture' exhibition by the Auckland Museum alongside other design luminaries such as Humphrey Ikin, Michael Draper, Stepane Rondel and David Trubridge.
