We are a design store based in Christchurch, Aotearoa NZ, and our focus is on supporting and promoting local artists and creatives.

As part of maintaining our creative discipline and focus on our core values, we will be photo documenting a different creation each day that showcases the wealth of creative talent in our beautiful city. Each item must be created or designed by a local Canterbury based artist/designer/creator, and available for purchase in one of our HAPA stores.

As our city rebuilds around us its important to continue to value and acknowledge the creatives, the misfits, the dreamers... and the small businesses that showcase them.

We are the cracks in the pavement, the foraged flowers from demolition sites, the opportunities that arise from chaos...and we are beautiful MAURI ORA!


Day 25: Sloth Life

I met this amazing local designer Kyla K at an art exhibition in New Brighton one cold evening last year - her work was outstanding and we got to talking about pieces she might be able to make for HAPA.

Fast forward a year and she created 3 amazing plywood pieces for us with a sloth/skate/surf theme which really bring a smile to peoples faces!

Kyla actually runs her own graphic design and art agency and is super busy with all sorts of collaborations, bespoke artwork, logo & branding design, layout & typography. Get in touch if you are looking for a rad design to complement your business or style!
