The Floor Is A-Shining Under My Feet

The inspiration for the 2009 collection of floor designs from Bolon comes from the world of magic, and the colors are reminiscent of dusk – the change from light to dark, shadowy and shimmering at the same time. Check out these flooring materials called Twilight. There’s no LED backing or some magical elf beneath it. It’s the result of a unique material woven to create plays of light and shadow. I wouldn’t mind have these in our office (hint hint Bolon).

    Very cool. Kind of hurts your eyes up close, but would definitely look the business in a modern office.

  • Colin says:

    Umm.. Does the carpet reflect light to make it look shiny?

    Because I don’t understand how something can shine without having any source of lighting?

    • Eric says:

      The material absorbs light differently at different angles. Therefore creating the appearance it changes color based on ambient light reflecting off it’s surface when you “move around.” This material is then weaved into a pattern. Because of the perpendicular pattern, we see the threads reflect the light differently. What you see in the images are multiple ways of weaving this material- to create the desired look. Yes the first picture is misleading.

    the abrasion will be tremendous

  • KwangErn says:

    I find myself missing the picture here. Is the material special? Or is the weaving technique?

    • Eric says:

      Both. Material reflects light differently at different angles. Therefore weaving it differently makes several patterns/color changes.
