my city: auckland by jonathon logan
We ask the burgeoning furniture designer his favourite Auckland haunts.
Having been in and around design for most of his life, working with fashion labels like Workshop and Zambesi, Jonathon Logan was destined for a career in design. Recently completing his Bachelor of Design at Unitec, the talented furniture designer is destined to make it big (in our opinion) on a global scale. Here we ask him what he enjoys about his city – Auckland.
Mag Nation for a sift through the periodicals then to free Mondays at the Auckland Art Gallery for a more puzzling loiter. (Mag Nation, 123 Ponsonby Road, Ponsonby & Auckland Art Gallery corner of Wellesley & Lorne Streets, CBD)
The The Little Grocer for homemade ice blocks before heading to the West Coast. (The Little Grocer, 311 Richmond Road, Grey Lynn)
El Faro in Elliot stables for a quick tapas and sangria before the movies at Academy Cinemas. Afterward to Bellota for dulce, cheeses and Spanish imports. (El Faro, 39 Elliott Street, CBD & Bellota, Sky City Grand Hotel, Federal Street, CBD)
El Caminos for the only good Mexican in Auckland and pitches of tropical Margarita’s. (480 New North Road, Kingsland)
