An evolution of traditional square carpet tiles, Planks are new shaped tiles from Interface that take designers to a new world of interior design possibilities, offering greater flexibility, minimal waste and more creative freedom.

When Interface first introduced modular flooring in the 1970s, it was the beginning of a revolution in carpet. Suddenly, architects and designers could create more flexible workspaces with inspiring floors that were simple to install.

Planks are narrow rectangular tiles of 25 cm x 1 m that can be used on their own or with Interface’s flagship square 50 cm x 50 cm carpet tiles. Planks can be installed as ashlar and offers a new installation method: herringbone. The potential options for new installations are limitless – as are the combinations of formats, textures, colours and patterns.

Net Effect, the newest collection from Interface, is available in the unique Planks format. The Net Effect collection, consisting of both square tiles and Planks, provides a subtle visual reminder of the sea on its surface, with a design reminiscent of swirling currents. The square and plank tiles’ shared coastal colour palette of two blues and six neutrals was drawn from the depths of the ocean, and the sun-and-salt-bleached wood and stone found on shore.

Effective zoning starts with the floor

By combining both Planks and square tiles it’s now even easier to create spaces within spaces, plus their simple geometric geometric designs creates little waste and design changes can be applied quickly  and easily, saving time and money. If you’re thinking floor zoning, think modular.
