Interface FLOR has dedicated a section on their website to Biomimicry. Their Spring Leaf carpet tiles are inspired by the “organized chaos” of a forest floor. Instead of designing a perfect repeatable pattern this carpet system creates a completely random non-repeating pattern.
See the two part video below where John Bradford, VP of operations and Research & Development, discusses why Interface started mimicking nature to design eco-friendly products, how to turn concepts into design and offers tips on product innovation through biomimicry. Sustainable Innovation is podcast-based program designed to help companies better tackle innovation challenges and learn what global organizations are doing to sustain their product innovation processes.
