About Us

Kina NZ Design + Artspace was established in 1999 in the historic Exchange Chambers Building, one of the oldest timber buildings in central New Plymouth, constructed in 1894.

The design store and gallery is perfect for New Zealand artists to exhibit their latest works, showcasing the vast talent this country has to offer. The space is ever evolving and changing with new works of jewellery, sculpture, ceramics, glass, prints, homewares and original paintings on display.

Owner, Luella Raj, has an eye for sourcing the best emerging artists as well as nurturing long standing relationships with New Zealand’s leading makers. Since 2001 she has worked alongside artists enabling a close knit, open creative community.

By supporting New Zealand based artists and providing a platform for emerging artists, we bring quality and consistency to our store. We place significant importance in establishing relationships with both artists and our clients.

We understand the value of connecting you the client with the stories attached to the artworks we have. This experience can happen in-store but we also actively engage with our online audience.

Kina is the perfect place for gifts or beautiful objects for your home and lifestyle.
