IMO was established in 2003 by Director Sam Haughton. Based in Auckland, New Zealand, we have a standard range of products and also collaborate with architects and designers when custom solutions are required. All our furniture is designed and manufactured in New Zealand and distributed by IMO, which gives us the flexibility to customise products easily and work to shorter lead times.
Although there is a recognisable aesthetic that runs through our designs, we are more concerned about the way in which people use and interact with furniture. We respect the context in which our furniture is placed, and the wider impact that this has on the architecture and interior spaces. We continually develop our designs and manufacturing processes to improve function and durability.
Our product has been specified for many large scale local and international projects, including Air New Zealand, ANZ National Bank, BNZ, Downer Edi Works, Sky City and Telecom.

For Sam Haughton, Director of furniture design Company IMO, design is an evolution, an on going process of research and development. “It takes a long time to develop a product; the user research, prototyping, drawing component parts, setting up tooling, testing and delivering it to market. It’s a demanding, comprehensive process but the only way to create enduring designs.”

Many of our standard products can be customised to suit specific project needs. We can provide this flexibility as all of our products are made here in New Zealand.
In addition to this we offer a product design and manufacturing service. We have over 15 years of experience working with Architects and Designers on one off furniture pieces and large installations. Pricing is quoted on a project basis, depending on the design details, materials, finishes and services required.
Please contact us for further information.
IMO is committed to creating timeless, versatile furniture that endures changes in tastes and trends. We acknowledge that the building and furniture industries have an important role to play in reducing the negative impact of everyday living on the environment.
We believe in taking honest and genuine steps to improve our design solutions, policies, processes and practices to become more environmentally aware and achieve a higher standard of sustainability.
