It is Stockholm Design Week and I am going to the different design studios to discover what is new. At Bolon I discovered they are celebrating 70 years this year! The company was started in 1949 by Nils-Erik Eklund who incorporated sustainability from the very beginning – using textile waste to produce rag rugs and awnings for RVs and campers. Today the company focuses on floors and rugs, continuing with the sustainability and ethical practice. The new floor collection, Diversity, celebrates variety, commitment and inspiration. Carmencita Lundsten, who showed me around Bolon Lab shared with me that Armani stores use Bolon’s floors. Way to go Bolon!
