The new Bolon designer collection.

SWEDISH design company Bolon has introduced a new Japanese-inspired flooring collection with the influential architect and designer, Patricia Urquiola. 

Bolon by Patricia Urquiola is a high-end design collection inspired by the Japanese stitching technique Sashiko, which combines soft colours, simple elegance, and characteristic stitching details and patch-like patterns.

“While working on the collection, Urquiola found a resemblance between the weaving technique of Bolon flooring and the Japanese tradition of Sashiko stitches. By developing, experimenting and combining Bolon with Sashiko, the colours, patterns and designs came naturally,” says a spokesman for Bolon.

Bolon by Patricia Urquiola consists of one design that comes in four colours; grey, beige with blue details, a clay coloured pink and a calm green. The flooring comes as a roll, is made in Sweden, contains recycled material, is easy to maintain, and has a high-performance classification 33 Heavy commercial and a 15-year warranty.

The collection is a suitable for office spaces, hotels or other areas, with its three-dimensional look adding a tactile feel to any interior, he adds.
