About Us

SqualaDesign was founded in 2001 and had 13 years of success in Italy. The founder Daniela Zavallone decided it was time to start a new life in New Zealand. The company was closed in Italy and re-opened in New Zealand in 2015 and has been successfully running from its new place of business in Queenstown and now in Oamaru.

Having started the company's roots in Italy the team has a vast knowledge of how the European industry works and are excited to bring this to the New Zealand industry.

We are passionate about our clients and have continued to work with our original clients. Being a multilingual team we are more than happy to take on international clients and would love to continue to grow that part of our business but are also excited to grow our New Zealand based clientele.


Since moving the company here we have widened our branches and have partnered with Italian designers, kiwi developers and creative designers, bringing an interesting mix of European and Kiwi experience.
