New Zealanders are known for inventing things. Since the beginning of Aotearoa’s human history, being geographically isolated meant that its inhabitants began innovating out of necessity. If you cannot get what you need, you make it! The phrase ‘Number 8 wire mentality’ comes from Kiwi's ability to make what they need from what they have on hand. Take inspiration from these objects created by Kiwi innovators through the design thinking process.
