Massey Wellington’s new creative arts building Te Ara Hihiko, is a worldclass home for worldclass art and design.

Athfield Architects have a long history of using Interface carpet tile due to its quality, sustainability credentials (yes they recycle old carpet tile from NZ ensuring landfill doesn’t happen), being fit for purpose and very importantly offering the best value for money for any carpet tile sold in NZ. Plus Interface’s range of colour and pattern is unparralled. They are the global carpet tile specialists. Using Iline and the Cubic collection, the floor plate makes a statement that endorses the pursuit of design and artistic excellence that COCA is known for. The colours used incorporate energy, serenity and damn fine good looks. Cubic is a random patterned product that is dyebatch mergeable. Hence ongoing facility management is so simple as individual tiles can be replaced years later and noone will see that a change has been made. Inferior carpet tiles fade and wear through use. Add into the mix the 15 year Interface warranties, lifetime anti-microbial, recyclability at end of its life and 100% carbon offset and you know you have a very fit for purpose floor covering. Did I mention the damn fine good looks?
Interface carpet tiles supplied by INZIDE Commercial always look great, always up for the challenge and always engineered to perform.
