For Bolon’s new ‘Silence’ collection, by Bolon’s Creative Director Marie Eklund, unique characteristics were born out of some unexpected and diverse sources.

“We were inspired by the nature that surrounds us here in Sweden, historical textiles and by classic, traditional wooden parquet patterns.” says Eklund. “In a stunning way ‘Silence’ also showcases our flooring’s unique ability to create 3D effects and reflect light – this last characteristic means that the flooring can have a totally different appearance, depending on the direction from which light is falling.”

“The result is a versatile collection that is subtle, light and warm, but still rich in colour with a silk-like appearance.”

A unique weaving technique gives Silence depth and structure and creates 3D effects and playful light reflections. “To the touch, Silence is soft and tactile with a warm, sober Tweed feeling – a nice contradiction, considering it is highly durable, fire resistant and covered by some of the world’s most stringent environmental certifications.” adds Bolon.

 

Also noteworthy, Silence is 100% free of the softening agent phthalate – a feature that illustrates the company’s commitment to environmental innovation and one that will be applied to every Bolon collection from 2014 onwards.
