Dezeen Showroom: designer Patricia Urquiola has launched a new flooring range for the Swedish flooring brand Bolon, combining Japanese stitching and Bolon's original weaving techniques.

Bolon by Patricia Urquiola is a flooring collection that draws on the craftsmanship and materiality associated with Sashiko stitching and Bolon's weaving techniques.

"When we started to work on this collection, we wanted to give the flooring a more authentic feel," said Urquiola.

"We started researching as we do for all textiles but applied the approach to weaving techniques. Sashiko came up as the leading concept for the collection."

The range comes in four muted colours: grey, beige with blue details, a clay-coloured pink and green. According to Urquiola, this palette creates a "cosy and warm" feel which is integral to the collection.

"By developing, experimenting and combining Bolon with Sashiko, the colours, patterns and designs came naturally," said Urquiola.

The flooring, which comes in a roll, is made in Sweden using a mixture of recycled and new material. The resulting "patch-like" patterned design can be used in office spaces, hotels and other buildings that require detailed floors.

Like much of Bolon's flooring, the range has a three-dimensional look which gives it a tactile appearance.
