MATTER High Performing Textiles by Mae Engelgeer for Wolf-Gordon

During NeoCon 2018, Wolf-Gordon debuted a collection of high performing textiles by Dutch designer Mae Engelgeer. MATTER is an upholstery series of luxury commercial fabrics that combine wool blend and metallic yarns with bold patterns for richly textured surfaces and added dimensionality.

MATTER includes three patterns – Mass, Merge, and Points – which defy typical commercial textiles with their visually popping patterns and tactile appeal. The colors in the collection span the gamut to work within any commercial setting, from neutrals to blues and reds that go from light to dark and everything in between.

Engelgeer developed the collection in The Netherlands at the TextielLab, which allowed her to oversee the process as the patterns were being worked out on the weaving machines. If any issues related to color or scale came up, she was able to adjust it as it was happening. It also allowed her to freely make any design changes she wanted.
