Flow with Bolon

With the launch of their new flooring collection called Flow, Swedish design company Bolon gives proof to their vision of ”A Future Without Footprints”. Flow has a bottom layer of recycled material from Bolon’s recently commissioned onsite recycling plant which results in the end product compromising up to 33% recycled material. It comes in roles and tiles. Bolon also introduces Scale, the company’s first organic tile shape.
