Redesigning Our Company
In 1994, at age sixty and in his company’s twenty-second year, our founder and Chairman Ray Anderson steered Interface on a new course—one designed to reduce our environmental footprint while increasing our profits. His bold new vision was to create the first enterprise to become truly sustainable.
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.
Using biomimicry & 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.
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 colouring within one style and colorway.
Urban Retreat Collection
Urban Retreat™ is a dynamic collection of eleven carpet tile products sorted into pattern studies that range from refined textures to broad organic forms.
Take care of our planet: recycle with Interface’s ReEntry carpet recycling program, which also helps make our carpets sustainable.
