OFIS, a home-grown leading solutions provider for office furniture and flooring, has recently introduced two new and unique flooring collections through their exclusive partnership with Interface, the world’s leading carpet tile manufacturer. As a part of the Easa Saleh Al Gurg Group (ESAG), OFIS has worked closely with architects and interior designers to provide creative and functional design solutions across corporate, educational, healthcare and hospitality sectors for over 35 years. The latest ‘Iridescence’ and ‘Ice Breaker’ collections from Interface aim to inspire and promote excellence while offering an eco-friendly way to transform modern workplace flooring.

True to its name, the ‘Ice Breaker’ collection is a patterned structured loop pile product featuring solution-dyed nylon, reflecting the cracking and crazing of frozen water. The collection includes a well-balanced colour range of 16 new colours along with its original 9 and comes with CQuest™Bio backing as a standard, meaning that the finished tile comprises 89.6% recycled and bio-based content. Furthermore, the collection is carbon neutral throughout its entire lifecycle and suitable for non-directional installation, allowing greater installation flexibility.

On the other hand, Iridescence is a square format high-performance Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) that mimics mineral and organic pigments that create diverse hues and abstract painted surfaces. The collection includes smoky greys as a neutral base with a variety of colourways to induce subtle and elegant floor installations. Featuring a plethora of top range specifications such as Sound Choice™ backing as a standard, R10 slip resistance, and an integrated modular system, the Iridescence collection also wears a sustainable badge through its IAQ Gold Certification with the product containing 39% pre-consumer recycled content.

“Our exclusive partnership with Interface in the UAE is truly remarkable as it provides opportunities to lead the market in supplying eco-friendly and durable solutions to workplaces. Iridescence and Ice Breaker both feature sustainable backings and Class 33 Heavy Contract performance, enabling long-lasting durability, which is supported by a 15-year warranty. With distinctive collections like these, the future of workplace flooring solutions and wellbeing will continue to strengthen, as we aim to encourage the market to be inspired by Interface’s robust flooring”, says Adrian Shaw, CEO of OFIS.

As custodians of both sustainable and research-based brands, OFIS has provided flooring solutions for reputable global companies such as Snapchat’s new Middle East offices, Sanofi’s Dubai Head Quarters in Jumeirah Lake Towers, and Heriot-Watt University’s brand new campus at Dubai Knowledge Village. Their complete solutions aim to foster wellbeing, higher productivity, and active engagement among people. The Iridescence and Ice Breaker collections are now available exclusively at OFIS.
