Launch of a new studio tile during Clerkenwell Design Week

2013 marks the 10 year anniversary since sisters Annica and Marie Eklund, third generation in the family company, took over Bolon and transformed it from a traditional weaving mill into a global design brand.  To celebrate the remarkable and inspiring journey the Swedish design company has been going through since its start in 1949, the company is now releasing an exclusive book and a new shape of Bolon studio tiles where a wide range of collections are explored in a vibrant expression.

The book, “The Story of Bolon”, is a flirtatious dalliance with the fine books found on the coffee tables of the fashion world and has a wealth of photographs and interviews with some of the world’s foremost creators, designers and architects; from Rosita Missoni, Jean Nouvel and Giulio Cappellini to Thomas Sandell and Gert Wingårdh.  The man behind the photographs is Tobias Regell, with a portfolio including both H&M and Bentley.  The editor is well known journalist Simon Mills, bespoke editor at Wallpaper and contributor to a number of magazines.

The brand new Bolon Studio tile, entitled “Wing”, allows architects and designers to utilise Bolon’s earlier collections into one masterpiece – adding an extra visual dimension to wherever it’s installed.  By combining different colours and collections in the new shape it’s possible to create a whole spectrum of different designs.  Together with the attitude and the graphic feel of “Wing” the creative possibilities are endless.
