Learning how to Love Carbon is central to Interface’s Climate Take Back™ mission. This ethos has inspired the global modular flooring manufacturer’s activity at this year’s Clerkenwell Design Week.
In order to create a climate fit for life and drive real change, Interface believes we need to move beyond sustainable thinking, into sustainable actions. This idea will be the focus of an unmissable evening discussion featuring Interface’s Regional Sustainability Manager, Jon Khoo, on Tuesday 21st May.
Embodying its commitment to Love Carbon, Interface will bring together its family of carbon neutral products at its showroom. These now not only include carpet tile and luxury vinyl tile (LVT), but also nora® rubber flooring. Among the products on display will be the newly launched Ice Breaker carpet tile collection. It mimics the effect of scratched ice to help create simple, nature inspired workplaces. Designed to be installed in a non-directional pattern, it can be used seamlessly alongside both LVT and rubber flooring.
Visitors will not only get to see these products in-situ, they will also be able to experiment with them during sessions led by Interface’s Concept Design Team. This is a perfect opportunity to learn more about their versatility, installation and the role they play in creating a more sustainable planet.
Continuing this hands-on experience, Interface is hosting a series of engaging workshops throughout Clerkenwell Design Week to reconnect people with nature and help them understand more about materials and their place in a truly circular economy.
Alyson Mowat will return for another year with her hugely popular Kokedama drop-in sessions. This gives people the chance to relax and get their hands dirty to create the beginnings of a beautiful hanging garden, which can then be taken home. Crafter Isabella Strambio from TwoMe will lead a mini-macrame workshop, where visitors can learn to make their own wall hanging or necklace using recycled cotton strings.
In addition, Interface ambassador Oliver Heath will be joined by Sustainable Design Consultant, Victoria Jackson, for a craft workshop which explores reusing, refreshing and upcycling a wide range of materials from electronics to plastics. Oliver will also host two afternoon sessions examining how creating spaces with a sense of community can have a positive impact on wellbeing and business.
