Life is not a straight line.

Introducing Bolefloor

Bolefloor is the world’s first industrial-scale manufactured
hardwood flooring with naturally curved lengths that follow
a tree’s natural growth. Bolefloor takes its name from bole,
the trunk of a tree.

Bolefloor has created the category of curved-length flooring
for the market at large. Until now, unique floors like these
have been the product of a few dedicated craftsmen.

With Bolefloors, all that is changed.

About

Return to a natural state.

It wasn’t nature that created straight floorboards: it was the limitations of technology.

Bolefloor allows a return to a natural state: floors as nature intended.

Life is not a straight line.

About

More floors per forest.

Bolefloor’s optimization technology means savings of the natural resource. Not only is the surface aesthetically appealing, but Bolefloor innovations allow more floors per forest.

Technology in the name of nature.

Bolefloor technology combines wood scanning systems, tailor-made CAD/CAM developments and innovative optimization algorithms for placement software developed by a Finnish engineering automation company and three software companies in cooperation with the Institute of Cybernetics at Tallinn University of Technology.


Bolefloor scanners’ natural-edge visual identification technology evaluates “imperfections” such as knots and sapwood near the edges or ends so that floors are both beautiful and durable.

Our process manages and tracks each board from its raw-lumber stage through final installation. And every board is cut using the finest in Homag woodworking machinery.

Just as Gutenberg’s invention literally freed the book from monastic confines, Bolefloor technology makes natural curved-length flooring available at a price not considerably more than today’s fine wood flooring.

 
Bolefloor
Ordinary straight boards

Life is not a straight line.

About

Unique in the true meaning of the word.

Bolefloor curved-length flooring meets the true definition of unique: each floorboard is as individual as the tree it came from. No two bolefloors are alike.

Bolefloor offers a design solution for most any situation: residences, commercial spaces, retail environments, or display floors. Bolefloors work in any setting where intimate, natural, and individual interiors are desired.
But there’s no law a Bolefloor has to be a floor — the technology has been employed to create walls and even ceilings. Let your imagination be the limit.

 

Life is not a straight line.

A Bolefloor for every situation

Solid flooring is the soul of Bolefloor, but some conditions still require a multilayer solution. Bolefloor’s engineered product is ideal for more extreme conditions such as environments with inconsistent temperatures, floors which endure ultra-heavy traffic, or other “extreme” situations.

Life is not a straight line.

The grooviest grooves in the business.

Bolefloors are available beveled and unbeveled or in a combination of both, including grooved- and ungrooved endjoints.

Life is not a straight line.

Available in Select, Natural, and Rustic.

Bolefloor quality grades:
Select: Our finest grade. No sapwood or dark knots on the face plane; healthy knots and “cat paw“ present.
Natural: Sapwood and small dark knots present, as well as healthy knots and “cat paw.“
Rustic: Sapwood, dark knots and cracks up to 2mm may be present.

For light-colored floors sapwood stripes are recommended when vitality is desired in the surface.

 

Life is not a straight line.

Technical

Our floorboards run to 3,000 mm in length with widths of 150-300 mm (there are slight, natural variations in places). Thicknesses available in solid wood are 20 mm, with multilayer available in 18 mm and 13 mm. 
 
For specially-engineered orders, production can accommodate up to 6,000 mm lengths and up to 450 mm in width.
 
Life is not a straight line.

Technical

Bolefloors are available unfinished or oiled, and also brushed for those seeking an aged or distressed look. 

Our preference is to ship unfinished floors, since local dealers offer the widest selection of finishes suitable for floors in your part of the world.

Unfinished parquet should be lightly sanded (180 grit or to treatment supplier's specifications) after installation for better oil or lacquer performance.

Prefinished Bolefloors are available in  WOCA Denmark  oils and Osmo Hardwax finishing. 

 

Life is not a straight line.

Technical

All Bolefloor products are ordinary tongue and groove (unless ordered otherwise), ready to install preferrably by gluing down.

Trained installation and finishing teams work with professional flooring stores which offer our products.

Architect CAD files are ideal but please exercise caution: files do not always correspond exactly to actual room dimensions. Consult or use your Bolefloor dealer's installation team to ensure proper sizing.

Life is not a straight line.

Curv8

Curv8 is live edge wood flooring which Nature’s Fit™ technology is science’s closest match to a tree’s natural growth, with eight patterns derived from Bolefloor’s scan data from more than 100,000 trees. 

Curv8 preserves the 8 forms most true to the way they grew in nature. For every Curv8 floor, raw boards are selected to fit one of these eight forms. Curv8 curves are never cut from straight boards.

Each Curv8 module matches perfectly with every other Curv8 module, making an endless pattern possible without noticeable repetition. Modules, eight planks covering a total of 2.8 square meters, are packaged in separate cartons for easy installation.

Boleform

BOLEFORM - Live edge surfaces for architectural projects and the furniture world.

Until now live edge tabletops were single-plank structures created by dedicated carpenters and high-end limited-series furniture makers. BOLEFORM now makes live edge surfaces available for all interior and exterior functionalities: any type table surface, door surface, cupboard-, cabinet- or wardrobe door, dresser or office desk drawer front, or simple wall-panels to create a natural mood.

Over an entire single surface, natural lines may cross from one door to another in their natural order.

BOLEFORM makes 3.2 mm veneer for panel and furniture makers, or veneer bonded panels ready for use as tabletops, door- or drawer fronts.

Just like a Bolefloor, each surface is truly unique. There are no two identical tabletops or cabinet fronts.
