A Foundation for Beautiful Thinking
Designs inspired by Nature have been around as long as we have. After all, what’s more beautiful and inspiring than nature itself? There’s even a term for our innate affinity to nature - biophilia. And design that incorporates natural elements – biophilic design – fosters the kind of creativity and beautiful thinking that move the world. At Interface the connection between Nature and people is literally and figuratively woven into every square and plank of carpet we produce.
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.
