Inspiring beautiful thinking from the ground up

Human Nature™ is the latest collection from global modular flooring manufacturer, Interface.

In association with

Global modular flooring manufacturer, Interface recently launched its latest collection, Human Nature™, which is designed by David Oakey, longtime Interface collaborator and world leader in sustainable design practices. Available globally, the collection is built on the premise that designing spaces which evoke the senses through light, colour, texture and detail spark the human creative spirit. The collection provides a foundation for organisations to curate beautiful spaces that inspire beautiful thinking.

Drawing on the innate connection humans have to the earth, Human Nature takes its cues from the visual, tactile textures found in the most elemental of floor coverings – forest floors, grassy fields and pebbled garden paths. 

Like everything in the natural world, transitions are varied. Human Nature features five 25cm x 1m skinny plank carpet tile patterns that pair seamlessly with 50cm x 50cm square tiles, ideal for composing imaginative floor designs and encouraging design diversity. The planks are also available in a range of textures, from tumbled pebbles to freshly cut grass, helping to delineate different working spaces.

The Human Nature planks offer significant advantages over hard surfaces, absorbing sound and improving acoustics, creating more comfortable, productive work environments.
