Bolon unveils its latest collaboration – a flooring collection designed by Pritzker Prize-winning French architect Jean Nouvel – during the architect’s retrospective exhibition, which opens on October 26th and runs until February, at Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris.
With its clean material expression and flexible application, the collection Bolon by Jean Nouvel Design is an architect-driven flooring concept comprised of six colour signatures. A departure from Bolon’s typically designer-driven flooring, this architectural edition was conceived with spatiality in mind. The result is a flooring with a textural, hand-woven effect created of woven vinyl in combinations of black, grey, red and blue.
“The freedom is yours to use the flooring to play with colour and light, and engage the windows of the space,” says Jean Nouvel. “It is not a decorative carpet, but an architectural floor.”
This collaboration marks Bolon’s first ever architect-driven flooring concept and directly addresses the concerns of architects in its concept and execution. Colour panes make it possible to have complete control and flexibility within the interior. The flooring amplifies the interior geometry, making it possible to experiment with the layout and the natural circulation within an interior space.
View the collection at Les Arts Décoratifs in Paris October 26 – February 12. The collection will be available for purchase in February 2017.
