Net Effect is a carpet tile collection that honours the ocean not only in its aesthetic references but also in a unique and tangible way through a project called Net-Works™. Net Effect One is a collection of three textures in 50cm squares that, when placed side by side, describes the precise moment when the sea foams into the shore. Net Effect Two is a collection of three products in our new 25cm X 1m skinny plank format that captures the fluidity of water even in linear patterns with expanding and contracting rhythms.
Observing the organic rhythms of a leaf-strewn forest floor inspired us to devise i2, an innovative advancement in modular carpet tile design. Rather than make each carpet tile the same, they vary in patterning and coloring within one style and colorway.
The proven performance and flexibility of Interface modular carpet tile extends beyond award winning design and easy maintenance. Our products can enhance the consumer experience in a variety of retail environments.
With more than 60 million square yards installed since 2006, TacTiles is the proven glue-free installation system for our modular carpet tiles.
Although Interface continually strives for greater sustainability, every phase of our carpet tile’s life cycle—from harvesting raw materials to manufacturing, shipping, vacuuming and end-of-life recycling—results in the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. So we calculate all the GHG emissions for the entire life cycle of our products and purchase verified emission reduction credits to offset them. We call this Cool Carpet™ and it comes standard on all Interface products sold in North America.
In 1994, Ray had his legendary “spear in the chest” epiphany. He shook the foundations of the petroleum-intensive carpet manufacturing industry by declaring that Interface was committed to becoming the world’s first environmentally sustainable—and, ultimately, restorative—company.
Intersept®, our proprietary preservative, is permanently incorporated into the primary backing of all our modular carpet tile products and recommended adhesives. It offers protection from the bacteria and mould that can affect not only the life of the carpet but also indoor environmental quality.
We offer exceptional products and performance with an added benefit to the planet. At Interface, our focus on innovation keeps propelling us – and our industry – forward with smarter, more sustainable flooring solutions without sacrificing performance or aesthetics.
Interface aspires to be the proving ground for a new industrial revolution. By demonstrating that there is a better way to a bigger, more legitimate profit, we offer the world an undeniably improved business model that can serve as a paradigm for others to embrace.
Redesigning Our Products
We challenge assumptions and bring elegant approaches and innovative technology to the design of modular carpet. By posing different questions, we developed a more holistic view of the impacts our products and processes have on the planet. This has allowed us to be more strategic in minimizing—and ultimately eliminating—the environmental impacts associated with our products.
Biophilia is the theory that humans have a biological need to connect with nature and that this connection affects our well-being, productivity and relationships. It gave rise to biophilic design, an offshoot of the sustainability movement that seeks to integrate nature and structure, even in the most urban spaces. At Interface, we use design to bridge the gap between these seemingly divergent environments.
At Interface, we live where we work. This may seem fundamental, but it makes us unique in the carpet industry. To be global in thought and action—with outposts and people on the ground in six continents—is truly extraordinary.
Our innovative backing systems are responsible for the enhanced performance and durability of our modular carpet tiles. They’re what enable our carpet tile to resist moisture and be moved and updated with ease. Learn more about our GlasBac, GlasBacRE, NexStep, Graphlar and Graphlex backings.
ESD Carpet Tile
Choosing the right ESD flooring can be confusing, even if you‘ve narrowed your decision down to carpet tile. There‘s static conductive, anti-static and static dissipative carpet tile with a few variations of each. What‘s the difference and what do you really need?
Interface carpet tile and Tate’s ConCore® access panels are designed to be flexible. So it’s no surprise that we’ve partnered with Tate to incorporate our modular carpet into their carpet tile solution for access floors—PosiTile®.
By following biological successes, we have begun to change everything from how we grow food and maintain health to how we package and transport goods. When it comes to creating more sustainable products, processes and systems, Interface takes inspiration from nature’s genius.
Our 25cm x 1m skinny planks bring new proportion and scale to carpet tile, giving you new power to create fresh, exciting floor designs.
Interface’s Human Nature™ Collection—a range of Skinny Plank carpet tiles that remind us of the materials, textures and tones we find in the natural world—is inspired by the vital, mysterious link between the nature as we observe and this same nature within ourselves. It helps answer the question we always ask when seeking inspiration—'how would nature create an interior floor?' The Human Nature Collection is available globally from Interface.
i2 Skinny Planks for Higher Ed
Interface's i2 skinny planks offer glue-free, climate neutral carpet tiles with maximum design flexibility for higher education spaces.
High Performance Fibre
The fibres we choose have a big job to do—work hard, lower our environmental impact and look beautiful for a very long time. So we purchase from leading manufacturers who provide premium, solution dyed fibres with a low modification ratio.
Premium Constructed Carpet Tile
Technologically innovative, aesthetically pleasing, and environmentally sound, Interface products give customers flexibility to change and style that lasts.
SCAD and Interface Collaboration
As we considered a unique way to inspire designers with our skinny planks, we realized we needed a partner who could offer a new point of view. So we opted for a group of talented multi-media design students from Atlanta’s Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD). They were young and unfamiliar with our industry. Who better to give a fresh perspective?
