About us

Crafted office furniture helping people work at their best

Aspect Furniture designers and workplace specialists help you create a complete office furniture solution that will inspire and support people in their work every day. We believe that high-performing spaces enable high-performing people, so we place a person’s comfort and ease-of-use at the heart of every product and system we create.

Our focus on crafted, fully resolved commercial furniture means Aspect collections are trusted by some of the largest public and private organisations around Australasia. With over 30 years’ experience designing and manufacturing collections for the modern workplace, our office furniture has a reputation for being robust, ergonomic and comfortable throughout the working day.

We make over 70 per cent of our product range in New Zealand and Australia for true control over design, quality, customisation and lead times. You receive products quickly and reliably from a quality-assured environment. In addition to speed and flexibility, local manufacturing also creates a smaller environmental footprint.

Our team of product designers and workplace specialists help you define and select a furniture solution to meet your workplace aspirations and project budget using durable and environmentally sound products.

Direct access to our furniture designers means greater flexibility and control over your solution, as we work from our collections, adapt existing products or design new components.

Back in 1982, from a small factory in Auckland, Aspect founder and CEO Richard Simmons made his very first furniture prototypes. Driven by a passion for craft and beautiful engineering, he steadily grew the business and is joined today by his three sons and an expert team of designers, engineers and workplace specialists across New Zealand and Australia. Today, Aspect makes collections at the leading edge of international product design, technology and workplace best practice.

Aspect Furniture runs on ethical and sustainable business practices. We have certification from Good Environmental Choice Australia (GECA) and Environmental Choice New Zealand (ECNZ), and our products are aligned to the Green Star rating tool. Independent certifiers regularly audit our plants under the ISO:9001 and ISO:14001 quality and environmental management systems. Similarly, the health and safety of our employees is vital to our success, and we are certified to the globally recognised AS/NZS 4801 occupational health and safety standard.
