With Twilight as the inspiration for our new collection 09. Twilight is the state where neither light nor darkness prevails. It is the frontier that divides the day between dark and light. The inspiration for the 2009 collection of floor designs from Bolon comes from the world of magic, and the colours are reminiscent of dusk - the change from light to dark, shadowy and shimmering at the same time. Twilight from Bolon is a frontier between the floor, the room and whatever lies between.
Bolon, the Swedish flooring company, was founded in 1949 by Nils Erik Eklund. Today, the family corporation is run by, Marie and Annica Eklund, making it the third generation. They have developed the operation from being a manufacturer of woven flooring to being a successful international flooring company with its focus on design, innovation and high quality. Bolon flooring is unique. It has a textile "feeling", even though it is manufactured of woven vinyl and has the practical advantages of vinyl flooring, particularly when it comes to cleaning and durability. The manufacturing is done with consideration to the environment and the company recycles both excess materials and the excess heat from the production process. Bolon's environmental and quality control system is certified in accordance with ISO 14001 as well as ISO 9001. The products are sold in more than 30 countries today, and among our customers are well known companies such as Armani, Hilton, Sheraton, Lacoste, Tommy Hilfiger and Mont Blanc, as well as architects such as Jean Nouvel and Renzo Piano. All of Bolon's 64 floorings are produced for public environments, with focus on hotels, stores and offices. They fulfil all applicable requirements such as those concerning fire safety, durability and sound reduction.
