Wolf-Gordon Launches Woven Upholstery 01 at ICFF 2014
Written by Wolf Gordon
New York, NY - Wolf-Gordon will introduce Woven Upholstery 01, a collection of new textiles, at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF), May 17-20, 2014, at The Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York, booth #1332. To encourage show visitors to experience visual and textural qualities of the new upholstery products, Wolf-Gordon is transforming the booth into a lounge area with a generous, long sofa upholstered in 9 different textiles.
Renowned in the architecture and design community for their innovative, high performance wallcovering, Wolf-Gordon has, since 2011, applied its design expertise to upholstery fabrics for office, institutional, hospitality, and health care environments. Woven Upholstery 01 offers an initial assortment of 11 interior fabrics featuring complex textures, spirited colors, and lively patterns that elegantly complement one another. Created by Wolf-Gordon Design Studio to offer a wide variety of design options and price points, the collection ranges from practical yet sophisticated, value-priced polyester blends to luxurious wool fabrics. Millions of Colors, created in collaboration with Danish textile artist, Grethe Sørensen, is included in the binder.
Woven Upholstery 01 patterns:
Hayapi is an artisanal pattern with a hand-woven look that provides a fresh alternative to a solid. It is available in nine neutral and primary colorways, inspired by natural plant-based pigments
Amagansett, an upbeat textile, conjures images of vacations at the seashore and mountains. A multicolored novelty yarn adds a whimsical stripe effect in nine rich colorways.
Camp is a highly tactile upholstery, featuring a faux woodgrain that has been “quilted” into nine earthy colorways. The high cotton content of the fabric gives it a luxurious hand and the colors—woodtones and herbal shades – makes it a great option for wood-themed settings.
Cross Stitch features a glossy cross-stitch motif that adds interest to a primarily solid-colored textile. Thirteen colorways span the spectrum from white to black, with ample saturated color.
Inspired by a network of power lines Telegram is a contemporary pattern with strong Art deco overtones. The pattern’s unique design features bold sweeping lines and a strong palette of nine colorways, including a powerful black-and-white.
Malibu is a decorative circular chain pattern, superimposed onto a large-scale ombre weave. The casual yet elegant fabric is offered in eight jewel tones.
Kiva, a contemporary interpretation of the traditional Ikat pattern, uses two-inch bands of no less than five different colored threads to create a rich composition that works beautifully on small and large seating as well as in diverse interior schemes. Available in seven colorways.
As explained by chief creative officer Marybeth Shaw, “In the studio, we challenge ourselves to create products with conceptual depth. We designed Tracking, Celluloid and Inversion as a study in projecting rectangular geometry onto line, grid, and sphere. From their simple origins, the project is enriched as each design was developed and translated into woven fabric.”
Tracking explores how a rounded rectangular form becomes a dotted line, endlessly crossing other lines in an ever expanding, modern depiction of pathways.
Celluloid features a combination of highly regular gridlines and impressionistic painterly marks that create both visual and textural interest. Ten colorways span natural, neutral, floral, and pop shades.
Inversion plays with the idea of interpreting two- and three-dimensional forms in unconventional ways. The designers hand-painted rectangles on a series of spherical forms, photographed them, and created this pattern using design software, which resulted in an intriguing play of “flattened” shapes that belie their three-dimensional origins.
The last pattern in the collection, Millions of Colors, developed in collaboration with Danish textile artist, Grethe Sørensen, is a wool textile of exquisite quality offered in three colorways. The name, Millions of Colors, references endless variations made possible by digitally mixing threads of basic colors—red, green, blue, cyan, magenta, yellow, black, and white. This technique results in smooth color gradations with infinite nuances.
