Interface, a worldwide leader in the design and manufacture of stylish, high-performance carpet tiles, has chosen Milan Design Week 2012 as the European launch pad for its latest on-trend product collection, Metropolis.

Architect and fashion designer Francesco Maria Bandini, the creative force behind The Positive Floor installation as seen at last year's show, is currently collaborating with Interface on an exhibition that will showcase the new collection. Housed in the historic La Triennale, the exhibition will echo the topical themes of apocalypse and rebirth that have influenced the design of Metropolis and present a new imaginary world.

Michele Iacovitti, Vice President Marketing Communication & Branding at Interface says, "For some, the apocalypse means death and destruction. For Interface it signifies rebirth and a better, brighter, more sustainable future. It is also the inspiration for some of our most distinctive products yet and an exhibition that promises to transport visitors to a brave new world - a world of hope, beauty and light that we envisage in the aftermath of a destructive or apocalyptic
event. This is flooring, but not as we know it!"

The new Metropolis product collection includes 15 striking, modern designs that symbolise the past, present and future of human civilisations and their cities. From designs inspired by the visible signs of nature taking over ruins to the surreal patterns and electric lights of futuristic cities, what these new products have in common is their resilience in even the toughest of conditions and their impressive environmental credentials.
