Interface Inspires Collaboration With Human Connections® Collection 

New Collection Fosters Community through Creation of Natural Meeting Points

Global modular flooring manufacturer, Interface, has launched Human Connections®, an integrated flooring system that promotes biophilic design by embracing nature’s elements and their relationship with interactive, urban neighbourhoods.

The new collection created by David Oakey, of David Oakey Designs, exclusively for Interface, responds to increasingly technology driven working environments and peoples’ innate need to connect with each other and the outdoors. Generational demand, technological mobility and flexible work policies have created a tribal culture that allows work to happen anytime, anywhere. Human Connections® draws inspiration from neighborhood meeting places, such as streets, piazzas, and pathways. Its versatility lends itself to creating dynamic, +Positive spaces™ that mimic natural transitions.

“Human Connections® is an example of modular tile achieving a new level of flexibility. The collection features styles that are stunning alone, but even more exciting when used together and, in doing so, can be configured in various ways to achieve dramatically different effects. Whether creating a seamless, organic field, a pathway, or a defined, graphic space, these modular tiles adapt to the needs of any space,” said Oakey. “The product line genuinely mimics city surfaces such as turfs, patterns, textures and grounds, using them to create interiors that function more like neighbourhoods that encourage collaboration.”

Human Connections in detail

The new collection is comprised of eight different styles, all 50cm x 50cm squares, which fit together in unique compositions to create pathways, intersections, and destinations. Sett in StoneTM, KerbstoneTM, Paver and Flagstone recall well-worn city streets, while Moss and Moss in Stone attach seamlessly to introduce greenery.

These eight styles were developed to coordinate with existing Interface collections, such as Human NatureTM and Urban RetreatTM, and work alongside Interface’s Luxury Vinyl Tiles (LVT), giving designers, specifiers, and end-users greater flexibility.

Human Connections further demonstrates Interface’s commitment to sustainability by using best practice in design and manufacturing to highlight its Mission Zero® accomplishments and support the new Climate Take Back® focus. The collection uses a 100 percent recycled, solution-dyed yarn system and has an average of 56 percent overall recycled content. The collection uses Interface’s TacTilesTM installation system, which eliminates the need for glue and forms a floor that ‘floats’ and makes the tiles easy to update and replace.
