Capital E is a not-for-profit organisation based in Wellington. Their mandate is to ignite the creative spark in young people, through digital workshops, live performance and events. As well as their work in Wellington, the Capital E National Theatre for Children also tours the country every year. As they say “Let's get inspired together”.
So, when it came time to create office with a children’s area, they needed to ensure spark, energy, vroom and WOW all coincided in the one space. And in bringing Story Inc. into the design process they were in very safe hands.
What a fantastic design, what a fantastic space and most importantly longevity, performance and low cost were all locked in.
Story Inc. specified Interface carpet tile (supplied by INZIDE Commercial in NZ) as not only is Interface the world leader in carpet design and performance, but it also has huge stocks in NZ, un-parallelled colour and texture combinations and every year pushes the innovation limits through its mission to be a zero footprint company by 2020.
Imagine ten years ago saying that your carpet was a carpet tile, let alone a carpet tile made out of recycled fishing nets and held together by Tac-tiles (little stickies that face upwards and are based on the gecko’s ability to run upside down on the ceiling). Yes, true innovation that is continuing at an accelerating rate.
