Carbon Matters: How Interior Design Can Help Save the World

Chip's 2018 Headshot.jpg

As Director of Design Purpose, Chip’s gig is reminding the Interface and its’ customers that regardless of discipline we are all designers and as such, it is our job to reimagine a prosperous future and set strategies to get there. When he is not assisting customers in translating their workplace challenges into the cool flooring solutions, he’s participating in the constant redesign of Interface, making it a model for a restorative industrial enterprise.


He is an interior designer by education and has practiced in the disciplines of product design and applications, brand communications, customer experience and the built space. He is focused on amplifying an understanding of the power of the built space to support the health and wellbeing of its users and the urgent role it plays in the drawdown of atmospheric carbon. His current focus is with Interface’s most strategic end-use, global customers and their sizable opportunities to reduce the embodied carbon in their real estate.


Chip lives in northern Michigan with his wife and occasionally with his college age sons. If he’s slow in returning his e-mail, he’s probably on the water or walking in the woods.

COVID-19 Precautions & Guidelines:

The safety of our members, volunteers, and staff is our top priority. While the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, we anticipate that this year’s Annual Meeting will allow for safe networking and in-person engagement—all planned in compliance with any local restrictions and current Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Guidelines in place at the time. CIDQ will continue to provide updates on COVID-19 guidelines as the meeting date approaches. CIDQ strongly supports vaccination. If you plan to join us at the CIDQ annual meeting, please protect yourself and others by being fully vaccinated.
