Wolf-Gordon’s New Collection Defies Conventions with Its Tactility and Luxury

May 16, 2018

Irregular shapes shaded in a shiny ombré gradient emerge from a solid-groundlike terrazzo studded with precious stones. The rigidity of a rectilinear grid is disrupted by the sinuous winding of a rogue line in metallic fiber. An intricate veil-like form partially obscures a field of pinpoint dots, suggesting shifting layers of overlapping pattern. These complex compositions aren’t computer graphics or digital artworks; they’re an expressive new collection of upholstery textiles by Dutch designer Mae Engelgeer. With Mass, Points, and Merge, the three new releases of the Matter collection for American design company Wolf-Gordon, Engelgeer defies contract-market convention not just with her novel designs but with contrasting materials and textures that betray a fascination—seldom seen in commercial fabrics—with tactility, dimensionality, and luxury.
