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.
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.
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.
