MINI’s new garage in Newmarket, Auckland, played host to the 2013 Urbis Designday ‘Wrap Event’, an evening of thanks and celebration for the sponsors, showrooms and many creative folks involved in this year’s Designday event.

The most anticipated moment of the evening was the reveal of the ‘People’s Choice Award’ announced by MC and media personality Jon Bridges and presented by Urbis’ editor Kirsten Matthew. Taking the coveted title from last year’s winning team – Design55, World and Jordan Draffin – was the design partnership of MINI and Switch. The team collaborated on a spectacular, large-scale design installation housed within an old industrial warehouse in Auckland’s Nuffield Street. The People’s Choice Award was decided by Urbis Designday guests who voted for their favourite installation on the day via a smart tag system.
