Jestico + Whiles completes key new learning centre for the University of Cambridge
A new building that offers co-working and social spaces, the West Hub marks the start of the transformation of the West Cambridge Site into a centre for innovation.
Woven Gradience from Interface features fading bold hues which transition into greys, allowing designers to integrate flashes of colour into flooring design.
The new flooring collection from Interface spans 12 colours – all inspired by hues of nature – which can be laid in multiple ways to create unique flooring patterns. The eight bold colours in the collection are Emerald, Ocean, Terracotta, Sunrise, Rose, Forest, Lagoon and Sage. The greys across the range cover the full spectrum from Ink, to Charcoal, Stone and Pearl. Each bold colour can be blended with a grey, or with another colour to create a vivid palette.
“The team’s inspiration for Woven Gradience comes from nature’s seamless natural blending of different colours and textures,” said Mandy Leeming, Interface’s Design Director EAAA. “It’s a celebration of colour – but presented in such a way that it seamlessly blends into workplace surroundings. By bringing in bright, bold, natural tones such as Rose, Emerald, Forest and Ocean, and gently shifting these into neutral greys, we can create visually stimulating floor patterns that feel contemporary and fresh. While the greys can also be used together to create muted floor patterns. The different colourways can blend into one another to create walkways or zones through flooring. This collection offers a clever, functional approach to workspaces with no compromise on quality, design or sustainability.”
The Woven Gradience collection is part of the Interface Carbon Neutral Floors™ programme, making all the tiles within it carbon neutral across their full product lifecycle. The tiles use CQuest™Bio backing – a non-vinyl, non-bitumen backing made with a bio-composite, containing bio-based and recycled fillers. The materials are net carbon negative.
