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, eco-friendly and expertise were key flooring themes. The answer from sustainability was InterfaceNZ. The answer from innovation was carpet tile. The answer from expertise was InterfaceNZ – we are the carpet tile specialists. The answer from customer service was Interface.
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.
