Modularity: Our unique approach to business.
As pioneers in modular carpet tile, we launched a completely new paradigm that informs our entire systems approach. We feel a kinship with the legendary mad scientist—always tinkering behind the scenes to come up with better ways of improving the status quo. This has led to great innovations in flexibility and sustainability. Modularity defines more than just our products: it’s a metaphor for how we see the world, and a sure path to improving it.
What drives us?
A positive vision of the future and the determination to make it come true. The moral courage to do what is right, despite all obstacles. An abiding commitment to show that sustainability is better for business. We believe that change starts with us and is transforming Interface from a plunderer of the earth to an agent of its restoration. Through this process of redesigning ourselves, we hope to be a catalyst for the redesign of global industry.
i2® MODULAR CARPET TILE
By following principles of biomimicry, we created i2, a design platform featuring carpet tiles that vary from one to the other within each style and color. The result is tiles that blend together no matter when they are purchased or installed. And, our i2 non directional styles install with less waste – 1.5% for i2 non directional styles compared to an average waste factor of 14% for traditional roll carpet – so you save time and money.
Many i2 carpet tile products—available in both square and plank formats—are designed to be installed in any order and orientation. This means less installation time, nearly 90% less waste than traditional broadloom carpet, and easy reclamation and recycling.And because there’s no need to worry about matching dye lots, less attic stock is required and selective replacement is even more effective. This not only saves time and money, but also the environment.
