Interface created one of the first billion dollar biomimetic product lines in the early 2000’s and sadly their enigmatic leader Ray Anderson passed away this week. A Gentleman. And a Gentle Man.

Ultimately, Ray’s work was not about making a sustainable business, it was about justice, ethics, and honoring creation. Zero waste was the path to 100% respect for living beings.
