Paul Barmes, author of Barmes Design, lives in Auckland, New Zealand. He has his background in commercial furniture, collaborating with architects and designers producing designs to fulfil their clients briefs. Passion for design and innovation  led him to design and develop furniture, both for his own company and collaborations. In 2003, in association with two partners, he formed his company to design and develop computer monitor arms, supplying distribution companies worldwide. In 2010 after selling 50% shareholding to his partners Paul decided to apply his full focus to the Barmes Freebase.
