Interface drives positive change for people and the planet at Clerkenwell Design Week

Through a series of events and demonstrations of the latest flooring products, Interface will explore how architects and designers can drive positive change for people and the planet, during Clerkenwell Design Week.

Activity will centre around Interface’s brand new collaboration hub in Clerkenwell’s Pennybank Chambers, as well as a striking art installation which will take over the nearby St John’s Arch.

From breakfast seminars to evening panel discussions, Interface’s series of events will take a deep dive into regenerative design and what interior designers can do to help deliver a Net Zero built environment, as well as designing for cognitive and sensory wellbeing.

The events will bring together Interface experts with special guests including renowned architect Michael Pawlyn and biophilic designer Oliver Heath to shine a spotlight on two of the biggest factors impacting design – sustainability and wellbeing – and how these can co-exist to create beautiful spaces.

Attendees can also drop in to Interface’s new space throughout the week to view the company’s portfolio of design-led, climate conscious products including carpet tile, LVT and nora rubber flooring.

Collections on display include the recently launched Woven Gradience, which enables designers to seamlessly inject vibrant, uplifting tones into commercial spaces through an innovative soft transitional design; Embodied Beauty, the company’s first collection to feature carpet tiles that are carbon negative from cradle to gate; and a new range of products designed to support the emerging ‘resimercial’ trend for bringing home comforts into the workplace to enhance wellbeing and encourage collaboration. Also on display will be norament 926 pado, which offers a modern take on terrazzo with mosaic-like pieces embedded within the resilient rubber flooring.

Interface’s concept design team will also be running drop-in workshops in the showroom on how to create different sensory thresholds to support cognitive and sensory needs. With moodboard development and design inspiration, attendees will receive practical advice to help them create inspiring interiors. 

A stone’s throw away from the showroom at St John’s Gate will be an art installation taking visitors on a visual journey through the company’s history – from petroleum-intensive manufacturer to global leader in climate conscious design and manufacture – represented by an installation made from the 100% recycled econyl yarn used in Interface’s carpet tiles. 

Laura Light, Concept Design team leader at Interface, said: ‘Clerkenwell Design Week is a great opportunity for the design community to come together and address the challenges and opportunities that are driving the industry at the moment, chief of which are climate change and wellbeing.

‘We’re looking forward to meeting up with clients, partners and the wider community in person once again and hosting some really special events from our brand new Clerkenwell showroom that get to the root of these important topics. We hope to inspire architects and designers through our series of talks in partnership with industry leaders, demonstrations of our latest products, and our spectacular installation which represents a journey we’re immensely proud of. We can’t wait to see everyone there.’
