Interface launches new flooring collection

DUBAI, May 29, 2016

Interface, a worldwide leader in modular flooring products, has launched World Woven, a global collection of Skinny Planks and squares, getting inspiration from textures found around the world.

Developed by Interface’s exclusive product designer David Oakey of David Oakey Designs, the collection weaves together modern sensibilities with memories of some of the most enduring textiles of the past, including the tweeds and bespoke woven textiles created by Oakey in the UK, a statement said.

“The beauty of hand-weaving is that it’s closer to nature than the synthetic uniformity of ‘modern’ machined production,” said Oakey. “In traditional Scottish tweed, for example, what looks like solid green actually has at least 10 to 15 colours, which is similar to the way nature works with colour. Other artisanal fabrics, like the freeform weaves known as Saori, are similarly diverse.”

“These products lend themselves to a wide range of possibilities – from a simple neutral background, or a composition of multiple textures to create diversity and movement like that found in the natural world,” continued Oakey. “World Woven itself does not create spaces with an outdoors-like aesthetic; rather, designers may be attracted to the collection for its residential feel, or its mix-and-match capability.”

Helmich Jousma, Concept Design teamleader at Interface, explained: “The World Woven collection is a reflection of the residential-like trends we’re starting to see unfold in European workplaces. There is most definitely a shift towards more comfort in commercial design.
“This movement clearly illustrates that the workspaces of the future will be places users want to be in with surroundings that make workers feel good, and this collection spearheads that change.”

The World Woven Collection includes six 25 by 100 cm Skinny Planks and three square ranges, each with eight colour options.

The three square styles in 50 by 50 cm format: Collings Cottage, Mod Café and Scottish Sett, are perfect for complementing the Skinny Planks and creating contrasting areas within a carpet installation, or as a standalone feature rug area, the statement said. – TradeArabia News Service
