A recent move to New Zealand by galizian designer Brais Goyanes and his partner, New Zealand born architect/ designer Sasha Hendry saw the formation of BGWorld – a design studio they hope will carry ideas across cultures and languages. With a combined passion for design and sustainability, the pair strives to create new perspectives from everyday objects and experiences, often with a sense of humour.
Brais Goyanes originates from Santiago de Compostela, Galiza. Having earned a degree in Technical Engineering and Industrial Design, Brais has lived and worked in Spain, Germany and Amsterdam where his collaborations with Sasha began. Brais’s designs exhibit a strong sense of function and engineering knowledge, mixed with an air of rebellion. Born and raised in New Zealand, Sasha Hendry completed a joint Masters degree in Architecture between Germany and New Zealand. She has lived and worked in Germany and Amsterdam where she specialised in energy architecture. Stepping into the world of design, Sasha brings with her a passion for materials and detail.
