The latest flooring collection of Swedish design company, Bolon, embraces visual motion, pastel shades and new environmental innovation.
April 16th, 2015
Inspired by the beauty and timeless mystery of oceans, Swedish design company, Bolon‘s latest collection, Flow, as its name suggests, illustrates design fluidity in a soft pastel palette. The soothing watercolour landscape is partly achieved through the use of a transparent warp, which allows the weave’s subdued colours to emerge.
The quiet aesthetics harmonizes with various elements of an interior space, rather than attempting to stand out, making the collection highly versatile where every design can be effortlessly matched.
Besides being available in the format of rolls and tiles, Bolon is using the launch of Flow to introduce its new tile shape, ‘Scale’. The soft and rounded form is the company’s inaugural organic tile shape which alludes to the appreciation of the ocean’s glistening beauty.
From a green perspective, the bottom layer of the flooring’s backing is sensibly made out of a recycled material. This is made possible through a 90 million SEK investment in Bolon’s recently commissioned onsite recycling facility – a testament to the brand’s longstanding dedication to sustainability.
