Kiwibank Corporate Office, Te Kupenga

X December 16, 2020

Flox has partnered with Kiwibank to create an office space that promotes creativity, innovation and collaboration.

Kiwibank recently opened their new Auckland corporate premises at 155 Fanshawe Street, Wynyard Quarter. Named Te Kupenga, which means the fishing net, the building pays homage to the historical significance of the whenua, the ground upon which the new building sits, as a bustling fishing hub and place of trade.

Kiwibank wanted to create a space that felt welcoming and inspiring, a place where people want to spend their time. Flox’s artwork enhances the fit out story by representing innovation and sustainability. Native New Zealand birds, flora and fauna now adorn the lockers around the core of the office, activating the laneways. Created out of vinyl, each work is made up of individually hand painted assets. These were then scanned in high resolution, before composing the images together on photoshop.

“It’s been an honour to work with Kiwibank, a real innovative and trusted New Zealand brand.  Their strong ethos of sustainability and community were a real drawcard for me, as these are also important values for Flox, as we move into the future.” – Hayley King, Flox

The New Zealand Herald took a tour of the offices. Read the article and watch the video here.

My Story

As an aerosol and stencil artist with a fine art degree, Flox has been making her mark on the inner cityscape of Auckland since 2003.

Her trademark native birds, ferns and flowers are a celebration of Aotearoa’s environmental taonga. Using distinctly vibrant and confident colour on a scale combined with delicacy they have magically transformed grey walls into vibrant depictions of the natural world.

Flox swiftly expanded her practice into prints, publications, murals, graphic design, live painting, projects and workshops for both schools and the wider public. She has been involved in numerous collaborations, charity work and both group and solo exhibitions.

Her accessible narratives have broadened the appeal and shaped her into one of New Zealand’s most recognised contemporary artists.

In recent years Flox has focused on refining new ideas, exploring other cultures and pushing her own artistic boundaries. This resulted in a three-month Artist Residency in Taiwan and a journey to Udaipur in India, to expand her international audiences.

Seen everywhere from Berlin, Hong Kong, New York, Taiwan, India and the US, Flox continues spreading her wings and making her presence felt across public spaces and homes worldwide.
