ngaging texts by three noted design writersCapsule history of 50 years of trends in American commercial interior designAmerican design company Wolf-Gordon celebrates 50 years in business with its first book, a lively and visually stunning compendium of product design (wallcovering and textile design), creative projects, showrooms, and branded materials. The company is particularly known for its collaborations with international creative minds Laurinda Spear, Karim Rashid, Petra Blaisse on imaginatively patterned and colored wall covering.Wolf-Gordon has set itself apart in the industry ranked the #1 brand by readers of Contract Magazine with an approachable and informal yet relentlessly design-obsessed public presence. This attitude is evident in every item produced by the company, large or small, from a postcard announcing a new wallcovering collection to a 12-foot-long scarf made from over 70 upholstery samples to a 1,300-pound suspended sculpture at the Neocon trade fair.Wolf-Gordon: Sample Book features more than 100 product designs (in more than 1,000 colorways); five themed presentations showcasing the astounding breadth of product- and communications-related materials developed by Wolf-Gordon; three articles on the company's design perspective and process; and a fascinating first-person history of the company from its earliest days to the present.Contents:Preface / Marybeth Shaw; Introduction / Rick Wolf and David Gordon; The Early Years / Paul Makovsky; The Creative Process / Melissa Feldman; The Collections / Ellen Lupton; Wolf-Gordon: Own Voice / An Oral History by David Sokol; Products: 1967-1996; Products: 1997-2003; Products: 2004-2011; Products: 2012-2015; Product Design; Sales Tools; Graphics and Branding; Ad Sculptures; Taking Form.
