In January 2016, the Bolon design team launched the customisable flooring collection Bolon By You. Unique in its kind, the collection introduced a new interactive concept of personalisation, allowing architects and interior designers to explore and put their own personal touch on Bolon's flooring.
By making their own selection of pattern, warp and weft colour, designers are introduced to an interactive tool on the Bolon website where the final product is the result of its creator's personal vision and imagination.
Petra Lundblad, designer at Bolon, sees the importance of giving architects, designers and interiors a chance to create unique flooring solutions that will reflect their aesthetic and functional vision while interacting with Bolon's material. And the result, she says, has been mindblowing:
“The collection makes a statement, and the flooring works well in unexpected spaces, where fashion, colour and art contributed to the diverse designs.Whether installed in a small boutique or an expansive gallery, this living collection is quite the opposite from a standard collection."
