RIGHT NOTE Major Frequency is a striking new carpet plank collection designed in-house and made in the UK by Milliken. The design inspiration comes from sound waves and the study of sound. Through two arresting patterns – Distortion and Vibration – and six sophisticated colour options, Major Frequency explores the relationship between sensory sound and physical movement interpreted into two patterns that create harmony within a space. It’s a particularly relevant collection developed to meet the unprecedented challenges of the current economic environment by offering a solution to the budget constraints faced by many clients at this time, whilst still providing high-end and differentiated styling.

Major Frequency is made up of two connecting designs: Vibration and Distortion which can be used on their own or combined to create transitions. Vibration is stippled and robust, harnessing a finer, more saturated vitality. It is an organic linear textured design, that creates subtle movements across the floor. Distortion expresses a slightly larger yet more diluted flow within positive and negative space. It amplifies texture to bring an additional sensory element to the floorplane. Both seem to create graphical energy as pattern subtly cascades across the floor.

Manufactured in the UK using tufted loop construction techniques amplifies the texture to bring an additional sensory


ACTION AWARD Global flooring manufacturer, Interface has been announced as a 2020 United Nations Global Climate Action Awards winner. The awards programme, spearheaded by the Momentum for Change initiative at UN Climate Change, showcases climate change leadership by nations, businesses, investors, cities, regions and civil society as a whole.

Interface is one of 13 award-winning organisations recognised for innovative

element to a space. The colour palette is effortlessly usable with a subtle range of greys: on trend and stylish. Major Frequency is suitable for a wide range of interiors from offices to schools and hotel rooms with its user friendly warm and cool neutral palette. Walkways can be created and different aesthetic effects achieved by laying the tiles in a herringbone pattern. Major Frequency can also be combined

efforts to address climate change and help drive forward progress on many other sustainable development goals.

The manufacturer’s project: From Mission Zero to Climate Take Back: How Interface is Transforming its Business to Have Zero Negative Impact was chosen as the winner in the award’s Climate Neutral Now category, which highlights efforts to achieve carbon neutrality by measuring and reducing emissions.

Jon Khoo, Head of Sustainability (EAAA) at Interface, said: “The award is a fantastic achievement and reflects Interface’s pioneering spirt and a commitment to sustainability that started twenty-five years ago. We are

with other Milliken collections to stunning effect for zoning and inset rug effects.

Major Frequency comes with Comfort Lite backing made of 90% recycled content which dramatically reduces noise levels. Milliken cushion backed carpet tiles absorb 50% more noise than hardback carpet, which in turn absorb three times as much noise as hard surface flooring.

so proud of the team and everyone who has supported us on our journey so far. With the next 10 years so crucial in tackling global warming, it is important to celebrate net zero solutions and provide reasons for hope, as our founder Ray Anderson said, to find ways to be a rainbow in a cloudy sky.”

Key Interface successes in sustainability include: reducing the carbon footprint of its carpet by 74% since 1996, and reducing the intensity of market-based greenhouse gas emissions at Interface carpet manufacturing sites by 96% since 1996. WHAT'S NEW? | 09
