Oakey, who designs all InterfaceFLOR carpet, shared his design philosophy and insights on the evolution of InterfaceFLOR as a manufacturer of carpet primarily produced from recycled products.
Inside Oakey’s studio (above), a carpet in the foreground beautifully corresponds to the natural surroundings outside. Oakey recently designed this carpet, inspired by an illustration he had produced when he was 18.
