Our Story

PLN Group is a global design house with its roots reaching back to 1977.

Family Values

When our founder, John Mihaljevich, started his small furniture company in 1977 he had a mission to create beautiful furniture that enriched lives for years to come. More than four decades later, our attention to detail, emphasis on quality and customer focus are still as important today as they were to John when he was able to oversee everything personally.

Today PLN Group is one of the fastest-growing research and design groups in New Zealand. Focused on people and furnishings, our aim is to create solutions that enhance products, spaces and life.

We are still family owned and run, and many of our team members have been with us for many years, honing their experience and helping create our reputation as industry leaders. They’re family too.

Now, state-of-the-art CAD design may lead the process, before talented craftsmen shape products by hand, but the values that drive us remain the same. And we all still take the same personal interest in our customers that John has right from the beginning.

Global Player

Our New Zealand-based company has grown into a global organisation with greater than 40% of its revenue offshore.

Sold in 17 countries and manufactured on three continents, our products can be found in the facilities of the top companies in both New Zealand and around the globe including: Google, Apple, Hewlett Packard, Air New Zealand, HSBC and Citibank.

Products are still proudly designed and made in New Zealand and shipped across the world.

Design Collaboration

We understand the power of collaboration to unlock creativityand new ideas. Our team collaborates with visionary thinkers from around the world.

We work alongside international experts and academic institutions to ensure that we keep ahead of the curve with all the latest research. Our knowledge on workplace, learning environments and your home drives our design program.

Our connection with top designers like David Trubridge, Rebecca Asquith and high-tech manufacturers like Revolution Fibres has resulted in innovative, award-winning products like the Hush light and our acoustic work pod collection.
