The Salone Del Mobile exhibition held in Milan last month was the perfect global platform for Bolon to present their new Elements flooring to the design community.
Inspired by nature and craft textiles, Bolon’s Elements range was presented to the world in an installation created by Shanghai-based designers Neri&Hu. Additionally, Bolon worked with BD Barcelona Design and designer Stephen Burks to introduce an experimental line of textiles that blended industrial production with handcrafted detailing.
A flooring range inspired by nature, Elements brings the harmony of the natural world into interior spaces. The 10 designs in the Elements range connect objects to their surroundings, demonstrating the positive effect that good design can have on our senses and well-being. Elements is available in a grey or beige base, woven into weft threads whose shades evoke materials such as Linen, Oak, Ash, Cork, Birch, Marble, Walnut, Flint, Wool and Silk.
Bolon designer Petra Lundblad says that the calm, natural aesthetic of the Elements can be used to great effect across large areas, creating a sense of unity in spaces of all sizes.
A new type of Bolon Yarn, the H-thread has been used to create the material’s soft welcoming aesthetic. However, the textured weave flooring product is also resilient to daily wear and tear, and able to withstand the high levels of footfall common in large spaces.
The flooring’s backing is made from up to 33 per cent recycled materials, with acoustic qualities also available. Each of the 10 designs is available in rolls, 50cm x 50cm tiles or in Bolon Studio tiles.
