| New York, NY - October 4, 2021 | Further expanding their commitment to wellness and sustainability, Wolf-Gordon introduces CLAIR® Aquatint, the newest addition to the CLAIR collection, an innovative offering of nature and textile-inspired PVC-free, Type II wallcoverings that are bleach cleanable.
A contemporary take on “aquarelle”, which means watercolor in French, the Aquatint pattern is an exploration of soft, suspended motion, evoking images captured using slow shutter speeds or the shadow play created by light reflecting off gentle ripples on water’s surface. With colorways inspired by natural pigments, CLAIR Aquatint blurs organic energy, resulting in a potent stillness that imbues a sense of quiet vibrancy into its surroundings.
“We are proud to add CLAIR® Aquatint to our bleach-cleanable, PVC-free type II wallcovering category. This innovative technology answers the call for beautifully designed, earth-friendly materials that maintain the high-performance capabilities and cleanability typically associated with traditional type II wallcoverings. With Aquatint, CLAIR continues to push boundaries, proving that durability and sustainability do not need to come at the expense of aesthetics.”
- Marybeth Shaw, Chief Creative Officer, Marketing & Design
Made with proprietary EVO technology, CLAIR Aquatint is a commercial wallcovering that beautifully unites sustainability, durability, superior printing and embossing, and brings the wellness benefits of biophilic design into spaces with rigorous technical demands.
