New York, NY - Wolf-Gordon's Performance Upholstery 03 collection is updated with the introduction of Axel II, a reinterpretation of one of the company’s most beloved geometrics that features diamond shapes within a grid-like pattern. Resembling the beginning of graph paper, the “coordinates” in Axel II plot out an appealing pattern developed specifically to meet the demand for high-performing upholstery.

The design is at once eye-catching and versatile, with a dimensional look similar to the layout of New York City’s Jacob K. Javits Center, a building which can appear to pop at certain angles. Now available in seven new colorways, Axel II can be used in a number of commercial and hospitality settings where beauty and durability is required.

Wolf-Gordon Adds More Cork to Its Natural Materials Offering

New York, NY – Wolf-Gordon expands their offering of natural materials with eight new Cork items for wallcoverings and upholstery. The collection utilizes all parts of the cork bark, including residual elements, to form intricate designs that have a truly sustainable composition, while meeting the performance demands of the contract market.

Cork, primarily sourced in its raw state from Portugal, is an environmentally friendly option; once the bark of a live cork oak tree is stripped, it will regenerate every 9– 10 years, allowing new bark to grow while maintaining the grove’s ecological processes. In addition, the wallcoverings feature a Class A fire rating, mildew and rot resistance, and act as a natural insulator with acoustical properties. The upholstery offerings meet all ACT performance standards, rate 100,000 Wyzenbeek double-rubs, are impervious to dirt and liquids, and are even hypoallergenic.
