Wolf-Gordon Introduces CLAIR® Aquatint

October 1, 2021

| 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.
