NZi3 is the national ICT Innovation Institute based at the University of Canterbury. The Institute is a 'hothouse' of strategic ICT research and aims to be a globally-recognised innovation centre that transforms ideas from the lab, across the innovation gap, into industry.
As an entrepreneurially-focused, applied research institute, NZi3 offers a unique fusion of the best of New Zealand's ICT academic expertise with industry-driven research.
So with the NZi3 building, innovation, colour fusion, Sustainable and expertise were key flooring themes. The answer to sustainable was Interface. The answer to innovation was carpet tile. The answer to expertise was Inzide (then InterfaceNZ )
= Carpet tile from Interface through Inzide commercial.
The Syncopation range which exudes sophisticated luxury with a soft beach colour was the winner.
The building is stunning, the Innovation Institute as an ICT hotbed is stunning and now the flooring is stunning as well.
