About Interface

Interface is the world leader in the design and production of eco-responsible floor tiles. Its products, which combine beauty, innovation and environmental qualities, allow each company to express its own design vision.

Interface was one of the first companies to make a public commitment to sustainable development, with the promise made in the 1990s to eliminate any negative impact on the environment by 2020. Known as Mission Zero, this strong commitment, shared by all and at all levels, allows the company to constantly push the limits to achieve its objective. After a decade of effort, Interface is now in a position to achieve its objectives by 2020 and is widely known for all its progress.

The company is taking this commitment forward with a new mission, Climate Take Back, which aims to regain control of the climate. The company's approach to design and innovation has been rewarded with numerous prizes and awards, such as the Athenaeum Good Design for its Fotosfera and Urban Retreat collections, the Hermès Prize for Innovation 2014, in the category "Improving the relationship between man and nature" for its Net-Works™ programme (the first inclusive and collaborative business model in the world), also awarded at the European Business Awards for the Environment in the category "Business Cooperation" in December this same year.

Since March 2018, Interface France has inaugurated its new European flagship. Located in the heart of the capital, this new place is a true showcase of the convictions and expertise developed by the company over the years in biophilic design, sustainable development and well-being at work.

En septembre 2018, Interface finalise le rachat de Nora® et propose à présent des sols en caoutchouc intégrés à son offre de dalles de moquettes et de LVT.
