Bolon's Silence series of carpet tiles answers the age-old question, "if a tree falls in my living room, does anybody hear it?" Such are the sound-damping qualities of this award-winning flooring collection, that you may be tempted to answer in the negative.
Silence Skillfully Weaves Function and Flair
In fact, Silence first received accolades for its elegant aesthetic and textural appeal. Designed by Marie Eklund for Swedish manufacturer Bolon in order to evoke the "the tranquil beauty and deep forests of our Swedish homeland," Silence is possessed of an appealing and earthy tranquility.
Indeed, Silence's palette is sedate yet seductive, recalling the natural world as well as historic textile styles like tweed and parquet.
Yet today's news about Silence involves its enhanced ability to temper sound. Bolon now offers Impact Sound Insulation (ISI) backing at 17dB, adding a new layer of function to this hygienic, fire-resistant, and exceptionally durable carpet tile.
About the Manufacturer: Bolon is a third-generation manufacturer of fine textiles and woven flooring. The company is known for incorporating creative materials in order to enhance sustainability and increase aesthetic appeal, thus fashioning "floors that are a palette of innovative opportunities rather than merely a passive surface beneath our feet."
