Services

'Dlab Interiors' specializes in high-end custom residential interior design, mostly kitchens (the main space in every home) bathrooms, laundries, wardrobes and other spaces like offices/ studies, fireplaces, wine cellars.... up to full house fit outs.

We offer a full interior design service starting from space planning and concept design development over detail design with budgeting and project management.

We guide you through the process from concept to completion.

Our designs start in modern design software visualizing dreams, but also highlighting problems right at the beginning. Get us involved early.

The design fee typically ranges from NZ$1500 to NZ$3500 for a mid to large kitchen depending on scope and complexity of your project. This includes space planning, concept design drawings, specification and 3D visuals to communicate the design. Kitchens we design typically cost from NZ$35 000, including design, manufacturing, project management and installation but excluding appliances.

Gunnar Friese, Principal designer and founder of 'Dlab - interior design studio' has been growing up in Germany, a country where only perfection is good enough.

Since arriving in New Zealand in 2013, I have been involved in many successful projects working with leading designers, cabinetmakers and wonderful clients.

 

With a background in designing and layouting cruise ships and superyachts I have been learning from the best and developed a true eye for spatial planning and passion for interior design. A structured approach, technical knowledge and limitless creativity -

make every project a success.

One of my projects has been awarded with

2020 TIDA Designer Kitchen - highly commended.

Where the name 'Dlab' comes from: My interest for design really sparked during my studies.

I loved learning the principles of design, how to illustrate and develop new ideas into actual products. All this was happening in the design laboratory or short 'Dlab' of the university I graduated from in 2011.
