Getting a "Slice" of the Action at NeoCon® 2015

June 15, 2015 | Chicago, IL—Attendees at this year's NeoCon will become part of Wolf-Gordon's creative process, by having their images captured and abstracted as they ride up the main escalator at the Merchandise Mart. "Slice" is a 30-foot assymetrical winged structure consisting of a machine vision system that photographs and processes images on a field of 15,000 LEDs. The resulting color forms, which are processed through pre-programmed data inputs, will be used in the design of future wallcovering and textile patterns. This fourth site-specific installation created for NeoCon is the brainchild of our chief creative officer, design studio karlssonwilker, and AV&C, digital landmark designers.

Tjep., an Amsterdam-based design studio led by Dutch designer Frank Tjepkema, conceived of the collection in collaboration with WG Design Studio.

Recollections by Boym Partners

Award-winning product designers, Constantin and Laurene Boym, draw upon memories of special places they have visited as inspiration for four new wallcovering patterns. Designed exclusively for Wolf-Gordon, "Recollections" comprises three rotogravure prints and one digitally-printed pattern, all on Type II vinyl. Broadway is a graphic trompe l'oeil of a theater curtain featured in dramatic jewel tones; Glasgow is a textural print based on the deconstruction of a traditional Scottish plaid; Jaipur is a lively design that invokes the artisan crafts of India and the mysticism of Hindu imagery; and Venice—a digital print that can be resized and recolored—pays homage to Venetian mosaics.


Wolf-Gordon #1 in Wallcoverings

For their December issue, Contract magazine asked readers, “What are your favorite brands?". The answers, across 32 categories, make up the magazine’s Brand Report 2014. Wolf-Gordon is proud to have been selected as the number one brand in the wallcoverings category.


Grethe Sørensen at the Cooper Hewitt

Danish textile artist, Grethe Sørensen, designed two innovative products for Wolf-Gordon that have been accepted into the permanent collection of the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum. “Millions of Colors” Sørensen’s first upholstery textile created for commercial applications, incorporates a unique “random weave” technique she invented, which translates pixels from photographs into threads. “Soft Spots,” a wallcovering pattern designed by Sørensen, is derived from unfocused images of light. Wolf-Gordon was also instrumental in having an earlier work, “Rush Hour 2/Shanghai,” accepted into the museum’s collection, which is featured in the November 2014 issue of the Cooper Hewitt Design Journal.

Overlay/Underlay by Kevin Walz Previewed at NeoCon®

Overlay/Underlay, Kevin Walz

Internationally acclaimed designer Kevin Walz’s "Overlay/Underlay" Collection of five wallcoverings and a performance upholstery textile debuted in Wolf-Gordon’s showroom during NeoCon 2014. Walz translated the effect of paint seeping through canvas utilizing rotogravure printing for the Type II wallcovering designs. Each pattern features exquisite layering of translucent inks in a sophisticated color palette, with embossings that enhance the theme of design as craft.


Grethe Sørensen Collection Exclusive to Wolf-Gordon

A new collection of upholstery textiles and wallcoverings created by renowned Danish textile designer Grethe Sørensen were recently introduced. Millions of Colors, a wool upholstery textile available in three tonal shades, is a gentle gradient pattern that references endless color variations by mixing threads of eight basic colors. Soft Spots, Blinds, and Codes are Type II wallcovering designs that also use color transition as a main element, exploring the effects of light through spotlights, fluorescent bulbs, and pixels.


Exquisite Wink at ICFF

To promote Wink at the 2013 International Contemporary Furniture Fair, Wolf-Gordon created a booth based on the "Exquisite Corpse" game originated by the Surrealists of the 1920's. We asked seven artist/architect/designer teams to begin a drawing on a panel made of painted drywall, wood, aluminum, or wallcovering, which would connect with the drawing of another artist when mounted. Wink clear dry-erase coating was applied over each drawing, and attendees at ICFF were invited to "complete" the drawings created by Snarkitecture, Ali Tayar, karlssonwilker, Michael Graves, Constantin and Laurene Boym, Myles Karr, and Ben Katchor.
