Global Modular Flooring Company Showcases Vibrant Luxury Vinyl Tile at NeoCon
CHICAGO (June 11, 2018) – Interface (NASDAQ: TILE), a worldwide modular flooring company and global leader in sustainability, introduces its latest global luxury vinyl tile (LVT), Drawn Lines™. The product’s design is influenced by the geometric patterns found in nature – fractals. Drawn Lines uses layered filament-fine marks in varying weights and rhythms to create a prismatic geometry in an array of scales. It is currently on display at NeoCon in the company’s Chicago Merchandise Mart showroom #10-136 and the adjacent Interface Chicago showroom at 345 North Wells St.
Subscribing to the ‘truth to materials’ principle of modern architecture that states the nature of any material should not be hidden, but rather celebrated for what it is, Drawn Lines is a departure from designs mirroring materials such as faux wood or concrete, and instead it offers a new, distinct pattern that incorporates biophilic elements into the flooring’s design. Drawn Lines is available in 10 colors: Opal, Topaz, Diamond, Bronze, Silver, Smokey Quartz, Onyx, Amber, Aquamarine and Citrine. Drawn Lines offers a never-ending pattern comprised of a finely linear matrix featuring softly pooling areas of light with no visible repeats.
Kari Pei, Interface’s lead product designer, curated a set of versatile neutrals and smoky brights for the product’s palette, and provided a geometric twist to woven textures with the addition of warm to cool tones and threads of metallic, adding 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 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.”
Drawn Lines is an LVT product that architects and designers can pair with Interface’s carpet tiles for an integrated flooring system of hard and soft without the need for transition strips. It pairs well with Visual Code™, which Interface is also debuting at NeoCon. Because Interface’s LVT is modular, the tiles can be easily and efficiently installed or changed to refresh designs or define spaces to achieve a desired environment or aesthetic.
Aligning with Interface’s circular approach, Drawn Lines is produced with a controlled material stream, so it can be reclaimed and recycled into its GlasBac™RE recycled content backing through its ReEntry™ program. Drawn Lines will also be third-party verified as a carbon neutral product through Interface’s Carbon Neutral Floors™ program.
Drawn Lines is available in 25cm x 1m Skinny Planks™ and, alongside Interface’s entire LVT portfolio, features the following attributes:
- Designed with Sound Choice™ proprietary backing for superior noise reduction, offering best-in-class performance for reduced impact sound and sound transmission.
- Constructed with materials and recycling in mind, including a commitment to deliver Environmental Product Declarations for all hard flooring products.
- Engineered to contain no phthalates.
- Backed by Interface’s 15-year commercial warranty.
- Created to match Interface's Skinny Planks™, aligning together with a precise fit, allowing customers to pair hard and soft products together.
It is now available for purchase in the Americas and will launch in EMEA and APAC in the third quarter of 2018. To learn more about Drawn Lines, visit the Interface website.
