Interface, represented in South Africa by KBAC Flooring, has introduced its latest luxury vinyl tile: Drawn Lines.
The new LVT’s design – influenced by fractals: the geometric patterns found in nature – employs layered filament marks in varying weights and rhythms to create diverse prismatic geometry.
Subscribing to the philosophy that the nature of any material should not be hidden but rather boldly celebrated, Drawn Lines is a departure from designs mirroring materials such as faux wood or concrete, and instead offers a new pattern that incorporates biophilic elements directly into the design. The end-result is a continuous pattern of finely linear matrix with softly pooling areas of light, without visible repeats.
Drawn Lines is available in 10 colours: Opal, Topaz, Diamond, Bronze, Silver, Smokey Quartz, Onyx, Amber, Aquamarine and Citrine. The colours and patterns were curated by Kari Pei, Interface’s lead product designer, who employed versatile neutrals and smoky bright colours, with warm to cool tones with “metallic” threads to add shimmer and depth.
Pei comments: “I believe this is the gem of Interface’s LVT designs. Its pattern is unlike anything on the market. It features the beautiful, intricate patterns found in nature – biophilic design elements that give the product a clean, modern look that will elevate any environment, including corporate offices, as well as educational, and healthcare facilities. Drawn Lines can be used as accessory to other carpet and LVT but its design is striking and sophisticated enough to stand alone.”
However, it is an LVT that architects and designers can pair with Interface’s carpet tiles for an integrated flooring system that is hard and soft – without the need for transition strips. It combines well, for example, with Visual Code carpet tiles, which Interface also recently launched. Because Interface LVTs are modular, the tiles can be easily installed or changed to aesthetically refresh designs or re-define spaces.
In line with Interface’s status as the world’s most sustainable flooring producer, Drawn Lines is produced with a controlled material stream, so it can be reclaimed through Interface’s respected ReEntry carpet recycling programme.
Drawn Lines is available in 25cm x 1m Skinny Planks and, like Interface’s entire LVT portfolio, features attributes that include:
* Sound Choice proprietary backing, certified for its superior noise reduction qualities, offering unmatched reduced impact sound and sound transmission;
* Construction with materials and recycling in mind – including a commitment to deliver Environmental Product Declarations for all hard flooring products; and
* Engineered to contain no phthalates.
The new collection carries Interface’s 15-year commercial warranty.
