The Happy Lappy was created by Ella, a freelance graphic designer and web developer based in Raglan.

Ella spends the majority or her working days at shared spaces and, after experienceing back and wrist pain, saw an opportunity to create a piece of office equipment that was portable, made from sustainable materials and enhanced the ergonimics of the desk set up.

Ella is passionate about the design process, and once the stands arrive freshly cut, she then hand sands and brands them, before packaging them up in recycled craft paper to be shipped to their new home. She also saw this as an opportunity to give back to the environment and is excited at the prospect of helping reforest areas around the world in need with EdenProjects.org.
