When the Rubber Hits the Road

Happy Earth Day: Make it Earth Day, Every Day

Earth Day Every Day

While Earth Day is a great day, we believe in making earth day every day. When you actively work to decrease your environmental impact, at home and at work, that’s when the rubber really hits the road.

Earth Day Every Day is a campaign to help Canadians reduce their carbon footprint by 20% by the year 2020. But there’s a lot more than your commute you can green. At the beginning of the year, we posted our Top Five Eco-Friendly Resolutions. And of course, there’s your continued commitment to designing and building with eco-friendly products and technologies!

Birkenstock Outfitted with Cork Wall

Posted on April 27, 2015 by Jared

Interior architectural design firm Siatyun has worked with some of the world’s most luxurious brands. Recognized as one of Asia’s most influential design firms, they were recently hired by Birkenstock to redesign their retail location in Velocity@Novena Square, Singapore’s only shopping mall dedicated to sport and lifestyle.


The Eco Floor Store supplied approximately 35 square feet of outside burl cork for a feature wall within the store. Installed as a backdrop to the illuminated Birkenstock logo, the narrow feature wall is a beautiful design feature that breaks the shoe display.

Cork Feature Wall at Berkenstock

The use of cork in the space was highly intentional with a triple purpose. Birkenstock footwear uses cork as the primary material in their comfortable soles. The outside burl cork used in the store showcases Birkenstock’s star raw material. In addition to a visual showpiece and materials showcase, the cork feature wall also has acoustic benefits. The sound dampening properties of cork reduces echos in the store helping create a comfortable experience for shoppers.

Thank you Siatyun for inviting us to be a small part of this beautiful renovation. We hope one day to be able to see it in person!

Over the years, we’ve had the opportunity to be a part of a variety of different projects. Our versatile and stylish eco-friendly surfaces have been installed in luxury yachtsrestaurantsmedical officeslottery homes, and entertainment venues (to name a few!).

We even have eco-friendly surfaces for your outdoor space!

Working with award-winning VictorEric Design, we supplied and installed outdoor flooring for a home in West Vancouver. The 300 sq. ft. outdoor playground features Dinoflex NuVista tiles in forest green, the ideal outdoor surface for green landscaping. The interlocking, high traction, sound reducing and water permeable tiles are very durable. And the best part? They’re made from recycle rubber.
