Otra Forma

Christchurch

I find designing is like grasping the tail of an idea, then wrestling with it to bring it into the real world...

Otra Forma is a design studio that celebrates the creative process, in all its inspiration, elation and suffering, to produce playful and unique objects that just make life better.

Grant Pender is an Industrial and Architectural designer, born in Christchurch, New Zealand. Grant started his affinity with design in his early twenties with furniture manufacturing, honing his skills at the coalface. He later retrained in Architectural Design then dabbled in bar and restaurant design. In 2008 he crossed the ditch and spent seven years in Western Australia working on residential projects. With studies in Industrial Design under his belt; all that sunshine, surf and inflated economy became too much for him and his family, so he returned to his native Christchurch with renewed vision, loads of experience and a heightened aversion to temperatures below 19ºC.

Grant currently collaborates with several local Interior and Architectural Designers, and continues nurturing his love for architecture and interior design through these partnerships. However, Otra Forma is a return to his first love, furniture and object design.

Otra Forma was born of a desire to create unique objects using beautiful materials, combining them in new and original ways. We take conventional ideas and turn them upside down, observe them and manipulate them, until the initial idea takes ‘otra forma’, another form.
