Founded in 1973 by Ray Anderson, Interface has evolved from an Australian boutique business into one of the world’s largest designer and maker of carpet tile. Not only is Interface products seen all over the world in luxury hotels, award-winning restaurants and private homes but it is also known for innovations such as TacTiles™, Embracing Biomimicry with i2™, and pioneering the industry's most successful carpet recycling program, ReEntry®.

Along with its mantra "vision has always been the rule—not the exception", Interface is also synonymous with sustainability. In fact, Interface was the first Australian carpet tile manufacturer to achieve Global GreenTag certification on its entire range of products, receiving:

  • Level A Green Rate certification, and
  • Gold Plus LCA Rate status, with EcoPoint scores ranging between 0.26 – 0.38
In addition, Interface products worldwide carry an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) which measures the life cycle impacts of a product and reports them transparently.

Rendezvous Studio Hotel in Perth, Western Australia (previously The Marque Hotel)

Interface carpet tiles were specified throughout the entire hotel and according to Diana Nguyen, Senior Interior Designer, carpet tiles were the perfect choice for its “product flexibility (ease of maintenance and repair), durability, sustainability, the attractive 'hotel' style range of patterns and colour and, most of all, the price point.” 

Sustainability is extremely important for the Rendezvous Studio Hotel due to their commitment to the EarthCheck program. “Not only are there significant cost reductions with having sustainable resources, but to be involved with such a well-respected environmental program allows all involved with the hotel to feel proud of our ongoing achievements," Rendezvous Studio Hotel Manager, Chris Archer said.

Since then, the Perth hotel has been awarded a Bronze certification from EarthCheck, acknowledging the measures implemented as part of the refurbishment to reduce their impact on the environment.

“We look for items that are environmentally better than their competitors and then weigh up the overall benefits," Chris explained. "In making this choice, Rendezvous Studio Hotel is leading the market in sustainable product purchasing for the accommodation industry."

Furthermore, Interface are constantly innovating their products and manufacturing processes to further reduce any negative impact they may have on the environment. Many of their products feature 100% recycled yarn, and up to 77% total recycled content. 

All greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with the entire life cycle of Interface modular carpet are offset under the Cool Carpet™ program – even the GHG impacts generated from cleaning and maintenance after it’s installed. The end result is Australia’s only 100%, third party verified, carbon neutral modular carpet.
