Interface has relooked at the lodging segment globally and discovered a number of real truths. Modular helps meet 3 of these key truths.
Key truth 1. A room out of action for any reason has a 2 X hit on revenue per room night. (Room revenue is obvious but Ancilliary services – meals etc – is just as lucrative).
Key Truth 2. Different areas of lodging facilities have different flooring and colour needs. So Interface has developed a “design your floor” concept with different modules for different areas – reception, suites, conference facilities, restaurants, hallways etc.
Key Truth 3. The impact of re-carpeting is massive with whole floors often taken out of service.
In this residential apartment, the owner was after a Turkish rug “faded” effect. Of the 106 yarn colours on offer, 6 were chosen, A dominant colours, 3 ancilliary colours and 2 subtle colours.
The Interface carpet tile (supplied by INZIDE Commercial) comes from the hospitality range and incorporates both highly recycled content (yarn from old fishing nets) and is 100% recyclable from New Zealand. And underneath a recyclable underlay. Called CushionBacRE. RE for recycled and recyclable.
