World-renowned design company Bolon's latest collection ‘Silence' is inspired by the calm, tranquil beauty of the forests, lakes and wide skies of their Swedish homeland. With the design team working directly with the machines and processes of the factory floor, the collection offers unique characteristics born out of some unexpected and diverse sources.
Bolon's Creative Director Marie Eklund explains: "For our new collection, we were inspired by the nature that surrounds us here in Sweden, historical textiles and by classic, traditional wooden parquet patterns. 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."
Another noteworthy point with Silence is the fact that it is 100% free of the softening agent phthalate - a feature that shows the company's continuing commitment to environmental innovation and one that will be applied to every Bolon collection from 2014 onwards.
Silence is available as a combination of sheets, tiles and, as a new article, planks as standard. The whole collection holds the same high ratings for wear and tear and fire-resistance and comes with the same long guarantees as every other Bolon collection.
