PATRICIA URQUIOLA COLLABORATES WITH BOLON
BOLON is proud and honored to finally share the news that they are introducing a collaboration collection, together with the influential architect and designer, Patricia Urquiola. The Swedish design company has for a long-time admired Patricia’s designs.
‘For many years both me and Marie have dreamt of doing something together with Patricia. Her aesthetic appeals to us and it really is a dream come true to introduce the BOLON by Patricia Urquiola collection to the world. Her great sense for colours is something that reflects the collection and it’s a new palette that we haven’t worked with before, which is a great complement to our existing range. We are proud to add Patricia to our portfolio of BOLON friends, says Annica Eklund Chief Creative Officer at BOLON.’
While working on the collection, Patricia 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. BOLON by Patricia Urquiola is a high-end design collection with soft colours, characteristic stitching details and patch-like patterns.
‘Sashiko means craftsmanship, a sense of materiality. When we started to work on this collection, we wanted to give the flooring a more authentic feel. We started researching as we do for all textiles but applied the approach to weaving techniques. We wanted to communicate cosiness, a feeling of warmth and Sashiko came up as the leading concept for the collection. I think it worked out really well, says Patricia Urquiola.’
BOLON by Patricia Urquiola consists of one design that comes in four colours; grey, beige with blue details, a clay colored pink and a calm green. The flooring comes in roll, is made in Sweden, contains recycled material, is easy to maintain, has a high-performance classification 33 Heavy commercial and a 15 years warranty.
The collection is available from the 7th of September worldwide, and is a perfect flooring for office spaces, hotels or other areas with room for crafted details. The characteristic three-dimensional look of BOLON flooring adds a tactile feel to any interior with the highest technical performance in every square metre.
