Making the everyday extraordinary


Customer Innovation Centre

3M came to us with a statistic and a problem. The statistic; the average person comes into contact with seventeen 3M products every day. The problem; the average person has no idea what 3M makes.

Unique problems need unique solutions

3M produces 55,000 products across many different categories. We needed to showcase the problems people face, and how 3M’s products solve them. The result; The Customer Innovation Centre, an innovative space that can reinvent itself for every visitor.

Bringing technology to life

The centre positions 3M as a pioneer, paving new connections through the technology it develops. Visitors are presented with digital content, product demos and high-profile guests including Prof. Brian Cox. This dynamic approach helps bring 3M’s technology to life.

Future-proof and flexible

As 3M’s technology evolves and new products are launched, the Customer Innovation Centre can be reformed and remoulded, making it future-proof. The brand can customise the centre, providing a fresh experience for each and every guest by picking out solutions tailored to them.

The centre will help get young people interested in the process of inventing.
