EAMES OFFICE

ABOUT EAMES OFFICE
The Eames Office is dedicated to communicating, preserving and extending the work of Charles and Ray Eames. All three of those dimensions are important to keeping the office useful and vital. At Eames Office, we believe that Charles and Ray’s work was the result of a way of looking at the world—a design philosophy and process that is worth sharing in many different dimensions. We also believe that creating wholly new works is as consistent with that philosophy as restoring and distributing classic ones.

Herman Miller’s Asian programme includes laminate pressed with MDF E1 and EO boards as well as strawboard made from rapidly renewable sources.

Interface

ABOUT INTERFACE
By definition, we are the world’s largest designer and maker of carpet tile. By reputation, we are a company of ideas and courage.

Ray Anderson founded Interface in 1973 because he believed in the global potential of carpet tile. From mill to management, vision has always been the rule—not the exception. We stand for design as a way of thinking on an organisational level across all aspects of our business and as an aesthetic credo for our products. We offer a distinct point of view and strive to create ideal spaces to help realise your design visions. We stand for sustainability.

In 1994 we began to change the way we do business, and the result has been transformational. For us, for the industry. We believe that some companies feel a sense of responsibility larger than the products they sell. That for some companies, design has become a calling so central to their mission it is now second nature. On both fronts, Interface is that company.
