In 1994, Interface founder, Ray Anderson set out a vision: to unlock true sustainability through ingenious design and innovation. Every process was reviewed. Every material questioned. Today, Interface honours that vision through a passionate belief in the power of design for good - championing the kind of beautiful thinking that can change the world.

No matter how big or small, change can only be driven by visionary thinking. Whether that’s creating spaces that improve health and well-being, saving our oceans from destruction, or developing a cleaner industry for our future.

The key is to push boundaries and make a genuine commitment to actively pursue new ways of working. For an idea to be truly innovative, it must be ambitious, but it must also have real purpose.

Interface is celebrating the beautiful thinkers of today with its latest campaign to raise the profile of ambitious individuals and companies that have driven real innovation in their industries and beyond.

As part of the Beautiful Thinking campaign we’ve created a guide to some of the capital’s best nature-inspired spaces. Explore the Biophilic Guide to London here.
