Innovators at Heart, Bolon’s exhibition at the Salone Del Mobile Milan will showcase the Swedish design flooring company’s experimental and collaborative approach to material production.
Representing a new chapter in Bolon’s 70-year history, Innovators at Heart (Hall 16:B27) is packed with new products, crossover collections and collaborations with some of the most reputed international design brands.
Highlights of the Bolon showcase
Bolon will present their latest architectural flooring collection designed by Pritzker Prize-winning French architect Jean Nouvel. Featuring a bold colour palette, subtle striping and strong architectural expression, the collection, conceived over two years, uses combinations of black, grey, red and blue to deliver six colour signatures.
Färg & Blanche
Visit the anticipated exhibit Armour mon Amour by Stockholm based design studio Färg & Blanche. The Teatro Arsenale in the 5VIE ART+DESIGN includes Bolon's experimental textiles along with furniture, sculptures and an interactive installation.
This year’s theme for FuoriSalone is 'White Design' and speaks to the syntheses of thought as a point of arrival and a conscious choice.
Bolon's friend, Cappellini will take over the historical Pinacoteca di Brera for an architectural exhibition, which will also curate the dialogue between six installations designed by Chipperfield, Patricia Urquiola, Zaha Hadid, Libeskind, Mateus and Boeri. Bolon flooring from the Artisan collection will line the square courtyard of the impressive cultural building and welcome visitors into the various exhibitions.

Bolon Managing Director Annica Eklund said, “At Bolon, we have always followed our own path and applied a fearless, inquisitive approach to developing our brand and products. The products and collaborations we're unveiling in 2017 are an expression of this curiosity. There have been twists and turns, but it has been in those unplanned detours that our spirit of experimentation and innovation has been released.”
Bolon is represented in Australia by TAG - the andrews group.
