Bayadere Orange flooring by Missoni for Bolon

Two family-owned businesses: the legendary Italian fashion house Missoni and the Swedish flooring specialists Bolon have collaborated on this latest collection of woven vinyl floor coverings. Bearing Missoni’s unmistakable bold patterns, the vibrantly coloured collection comprises three different designs: reminiscent of Missoni’s trademark zigzag ‘Optical’, linear ‘Bayadere’ and equally distinctive but toned-down in its colourway, the monochrome ‘Flame.’ In total, the entire range is available in nine different versions and it was launched earlier in April during Milan’s Salone del Mobile fair and will be presented again in less than two weeks during the upcoming Clerkenwell Design Week in London (22 – 24 May).

More about the collection:

“My sister Marie and I came into contact with Missoni a few years ago and we quickly found common ground. The same philosophy about life, views about design, both Bolon and Missoni are strong family businesses with their own production lines, third-generation entrepreneurs, our products are woven – as you can imagine, we saw eye-to-eye on most things. The idea of entering into a partnership also came naturally. As you know, we love finding new dimensions and setting ourselves new challenges. Creative collaborations, like this one with Missoni, give us the energy to shift into a higher gear,” says Annica Eklund, Managing Director of Bolon.

‘The new flooring collection, Bolon by Missoni, is based on Missoni’s classic patterns and generous range of colours, which Bolon has reproduced thanks to the latest weaving technology in a very impressive way. This high energy, playful and very flamboyant collection is available in three designs –Optical, Bayadere and Flame – with each design offered in a variety of colours. In total, there are no less than nine different versions.’
