Asona created innovative ceiling lanterns for the renovated ASB Queen Street. Michael Fisher from CPRW Fisher wished to create the illusion of sky-lit light wells. The illusion was created with a series of suspended paper cylinders grouped together to produce dappled light. Asona creatively used Sonatex glass mat acoustic facing, which allowed Michael to work with the paper in the same way the Japanese have done for centuries. The success of this feature is the reason it was chosen as a finalist in the NZ Interior Awards in the 'Craftsmanship' section.
Asona announced that its Triton range of acoustic ceiling and wall panels has been assessed and awarded Global GreenTagCert. This is exciting news for architects and building professionals alike who can now specify Triton products in the complete confidence of gaining Green Star credits for ceiling and wall panels. Furthermore, the Triton range is manufactured in New Zealand and due to its unique composite laminated construction, the panels are designed to be renewed and reused to extend their life.
The International W3 Awards honour creative excellence on the web and this year received over 5000 entries from interactive agencies and web designers from around the world. Asona's web development agency Jiminy entered Asona's website into the 'manufacturing' section and was awarded silver for their remarkable efforts. One of only two winners from New Zealand.
