WOLF-GORDON RELEASES WILL ELECTRIFIY AT NEOCON 2018
| New York, NY - June 5, 2018 | Wolf-Gordon will be debuting the innovative MATTER collection by Dutch designer Mae Engelgeer at NeoCon 2018 alongside other new collaborations and additions to established product lines. The star of this year’s show, MATTER, is a sophisticated commercial upholstery series with high loft and chic metallic filaments. The three high performing, wool blend textiles have intricate detailing and geometric forms for an unparalleled visual and tactile appeal.
"We are thrilled to present such a comprehensive new series of wallcoverings and upholstery textiles in our NeoCon Showroom, exclusive to Wolf-Gordon. Our work with Mae Engelgeer, Me and General, and Brenda Houston has injected new energy into our offering, and charts a very upbeat path for the year to come."
– Marybeth Shaw, Chief Creative Officer, Marketing & Design
Wolf-Gordon will also preview introductions with two new designers in its Curated Collection of digital wallcoverings: Me and General Design, a team whose unconventional start on film sets and performance stages gives them a signature edge, contains four graphic wallcoverings that present a stylistic mix of urban, modern, and chic; and, Brenda Houston, whose affinity for gemstones and fossils give her a distinct perspective, exposing the organic beauty of weathered wood and minerals.
Additionally, the American surface design company will introduce a new line and showcase the growth of some its most iconic collections. Woven Upholstery 03 will launch with four textural fabrics, Brio, Gabrielle, Barrington, and Static, and three multi-color patterns, Radiator, Checkmate and Static. Next, two new designs add sensuality in form and texture to London Chic commercial wallcoverings. Finally, three elegant textile looks will be previewed for Contract Wallcovering 02.

About Mae Engelgeer
After graduating in 2004 from the Amsterdam Fashion Instituut where she specialized in textile design, Engelgeer was accepted to the prestigious Master Course in Applied Arts at the Sandberg Instituut and developed her first collection. In 2013, Engelgeer opened her own studio in Amsterdam, working on textile and product design and development, installations, and international collaborations. Mae’s work is characterized by a typical use of colour, geometric shapes and linear elements. An eye for detail and sense of composition are important in her designs when it comes to introducing balance. Mae’s style has an open character that could be described as minimalistic with a playful twist. She tries to combine craft, new technology and materials into home textiles without losing ground on refinement or quality.
