Following the launch at Neocon, the new Interface’s eco-sustainable flooring collections are now available in Europe, too; they are carbon neutral through theirs entire lifecycle.
Visual Code is a carpet flooring collection designed by David Oakey that marries high-tech and high-touch worlds.
Drawn Lines, the LVT collection designed by Kari Pei, incorporates fractals and biophilic elements into the flooring’s design.
Following its more than 20-year commitment to sustainability, Interface announces that all products – both LVT and carpet tile- will now be third-party verified as carbon neutral across the entire lifecycle of the product under the Carbon Neutral Floors™ program.
A holistic approach to carbon neutrality, looking beyond carbon emissions from manufacturing to consider and calculate emissions across the entire product lifecycle. This begins with raw materials and continues through manufacturing, transportation, maintenance and ultimately end-of-life product take back and recycling through ReEntry™ and other disposal methods.
The innovation is the core for both design and sustainability, as Lisa King, vice president of product innovation and insights quotes: “Our product designs stimulate creativity and inspiration in everyday spaces, while taking positive steps toward a healthier planet.
Visual Code and Drawn Lines reconnect people through biophilic attributes and recall influence of the maker movement in hand-crafted design details. Both collections effortlessly enhance any space though the products’ modular capabilities and complementary designs that effortlessly deliver uncomplicated, cutting-edge flooring to meet a variety of customer needs.”
Visual Code marries the worlds of high-tech and high-touch. This carpet flooring collection pulls inspiration from images of glitch graphics and simple textures, which recall traditional woven fabrics and rugs, and is accentuated by a palette comprised of grays and pops of bright, bold colors.
“In a world of AI, VR, robotics and smart everything, we are losing our ability to have truly organic and creative thinking. Visual Code brings engagement with the natural world and real, high-touch things back into our spaces. – quoted the designer David Oakey– I was inspired by the juxtaposition of a trend like the glitch effect and organic textures. This concept of joining simple grays with bold, bright and scrambled colors and balancing in four striking black and white textures promotes a playful, creative experience and provides calming qualities that mirror the natural world.”
Drawn Lines is the latest global LVT product from Interface and offers a distinct pattern inspired by fractals found in nature. The collection uses nature’s geometric patterns as a muse to guide layered filament-fine marks in varying weights and rhythms to create a prismatic geometry in an array of scales.
A never-ending pattern, enhanced by a base of smoky brights, cool and warm neutrals. The geo-woven pattern is accented by threads of metallic, which add shimmer and depth.
“I believe this is the gem of our LVT designs, thus far, due to its pattern, which is unlike anything on the market. -says the designer Kari Pei – I was inspired by the beautiful, intricate patterns found in nature. It’s these biophilic design elements that give the product a clean, modern look that elevates any environment, from corporate office, to education, to healthcare. Like jewelry, Drawn Lines can be used as an accessory to other carpet and LVT; however, much like the Hope Diamond, the design of this product is sophisticated enough to stand alone.”
