MULTIPLE COMBINATIONS. SIMPLE TO USE.

Steelcase Surface Materials are designed for ease of coordination and use, abundance of choice and thoughtfulness to the environment. The offering consists of a wide selection of textiles, paints, laminates, veneer, glass, and more.

Three simple ideas help to create a materials palette that works.

First, our textiles are designed to work with our hard surfaces. Secondly, you can choose any architectural elements for a space, and our surfaces will coordinate with them. And, finally, our offering allows for you to create the environment you want, using the finishes you want.

At the end of the day, it’s all about you.

Recycled Polyester

It’s available in 2 ways – post consumer and post industrial. Both are kind to the environment, as they reduce the amount of waste going to a landfill and save energy in the manufacturing process.

Post consumer polyester is made from waste material left over after consumer use. Things like soda and water bottles are ultimately extruded and woven into fabric.

Post industrial polyester is made from waste material that is left over from industrial processes and before use by the consumer.

Visit the Finish Library to find materials made using recycled polyester.
