Platinum Award
Portmanteau references far-flung locales and is a shamelessly lush collection of 19 25cm x 1m Skinny PlanksTM and 50cm x 1m planks. It draws deeply from the power of decoration and ornamentation to evoke memories and lift spirits. Six groupings of patterns are offered, ranging from organic to traditional to modern. Each grouping – which includes a pattern and two transitions – also contains four distinct pile heights that create an optical effect as if the motif is fading in and out.The system allows a single theme to be carried throughout an entire property, but with a sense of movement and variation as those tiles with more defined patterns combine with simpler textures. Transition tiles incrementally diffuse the patterns’ texture, so there can be the appearance of a gradual shift in the design or an abrupt and dramatic change. With one texture, shared by all patterns, Portmanteau creates a seamless, monolithic flow that obscures individual tiles and lends itself beautifully to freeform floorscapes.


Portmanteau is constructed of 100% recycled nylon from reclaimed fishing nets and recycled materials from Interface’s ReEntry program. It carries CRI Green Label Plus #GLP0820 for indoor air quality and is verified as Climate Neutral and NSF/ANSI-140 Platinum-Sustainable Carpet Assessment Standard.




Applications include commercial spaces of all kinds, including corporate, hospitality, healthcare and education. Prices are available upon request.



In the late 1960s Ray Anderson, a young American engineer and entrepreneur, sensed the need for flexible floorcovering for the growing modern office market and responded by creating a company called Interface Flooring Systems. It was an enterprise focused on reinventing the way business considered floorcovering. In 1973, Interface Flooring Systems imported a concept for carpet modules from Europe, and created a legitimate free lay carpet tile. The resultant product category was extremely stable and dense, which allowed it to be installed with a minimum of adhesive and perform, a prerequisite for truly sustainable floorcovering. For 30 years Interface has consistently led in innovations of carpet and modular systems. Interface offers award-winning designs on patented backing systems for a variety of end-use applications. In addition, the diverse formats in which Interface modular products are available provide maximum installation flexibility. Interface is setting the pace for development of modular carpet using materials and processes that take less from the environment, as it strives toward the ultimate objective of designing every product to be truly sustainable. All Interface carpet manufacturing facilities worldwide maintain third party registration to the ISO 14001 Environmental Management System and to the ISO 9001 Quality Management Standard.
• Today, Interface, Inc.(NASDAQ: IFSIA) is the worldwide leader in design, has recently expanded into modular resilient flooring with a new luxury vinyl tile line. Our hard and soft tiles are designed to work together in an integrated flooring system. Our production and sales of environmentally responsible modular carpet are manufactured for the commercial and institutional markets under the Interface® brand, and for consumer markets as FLOR™.
