Active Office Furniture Collaboration with Human Potential Centre

Recently the Product department (staff and Postgraduate students) collaborated with Prof Grant Schofield and his staff at AUT’s Human Potential Centre, based at the Millennium high performance sports complex in Albany to design a set of new office furniture for their building.  The project is part of an ongoing research collaboration between the two departments, involving both staff and postgraduate students.  The furniture has been successfully installed and has generated a substantial amount of interest. See below for a recent Sundays Star Times story.
