LIGHTING AND INTERIORS – Interface and Aquafil Collaborate to Design Industry First Carpet Concept
Global modular flooring manufacturer, Interface, has today launched its new collection, Touch of Timber™, a hybrid textile floor which resembles timber.
Co-developed with leading yarn supplier, Aquafil, the innovative product is a first for the carpet tile industry and showcases the benefits of advanced contrast and colour twist technologies, combined with Interface MicrotuftTM yarn construction.
Developed over an 18 month period, Touch of TimberTM delivers a wooden floor in appearance, with all the benefits of a low impact carpet tile.
Luca Bertamini, Head of Customer Technical Service at Aqualfil, added: “Aquafil is thrilled with the collaboration between our Research and Development team and the Interface design team to create these unique-look collections using ECONYL® yarn. By merging Aquafil’s technical ingenuity and expertise with Interface’s creativity, we have developed a product unlike any other in the industry.”
