In collaboration with American design company, Wolf-Gordon, Sunbrella has crafted an inspired line of Contract fabrics to bring sophisticated style and functional performance to commercial environments.
The complex and artistic Wolf-Gordon Collection features a varied selection of structured patterns and unique colorways, such as jewel tones, nods to a nautical motif, and earthy neutrals.
Segment, which is inspired by concepts of architectural drafting, offers thin horizontal stripes that imply subtle movement. The understated pattern is available in cool Slate and Obsidian, as well as warm neutrals like Sepia and Sand. Trilateral features a dynamic pattern of overlapping triangles in nautical, seasonal, and neutral colors to provide balance and variety. The collection features patterns that serve as transitional elements for both indoor and outdoor commercial spaces. A collaborative effort of Wolf-Gordon and Sunbrella designers, the versatile Contract collection offers sophisticated style in high-traffic spaces, like hospitality or healthcare settings.
“With these designs in Sunbrella Contract constructions, we sought to enrich geometric patterning with sophisticated color compositions that juxtapose nautical and jewel toned shades to neutrals, thereby offering our clients enhanced options for coordination with other interior surfacing materials.” – Marybeth Shaw, Chief Creative Officer.
Tangram is a lively, textural pattern that creates the illusion of dimension. Soft chenille yarns woven in rich colorways of Mulberry, Ocean and Henna form the angular shapes raised against a weft that integrates multiple compatible hues. With highly UV-stable pigments, which are resistant to fading and the degrading effects of sunlight, the bold and playful collection is suitable for both indoor and outdoor commercial upholstery applications.
“Riley and Stella were inspired by the works of two masters of Modern art. Their upbeat patterns and color lines, and indoor/outdoor features support our initiative to grow our upholstery collection through engaging, high performance design.” – Marybeth Shaw, Chief Creative Officer, Marketing & Design
In the newest patterns from the collection, Stella and Riley, upholstery designer Katherine Hagge combined her design expertise with artistic inspiration from the works of artists Frank Stella and Bridget Riley, resulting in playful, complex configurations of repeating shapes and lines. Jewel tones like Lapis, Turquoise, and Aquamarine are juxtaposed with complementary natural hues like Maple, Mint, and Coral for a fade resistant color palette that brings balance and warmth to commercial settings.
Inspired by the Frank Stella prints that she happened upon while visiting a friend in a hospital, Hagge designed Stella as a playful textile adaptation of the American artist’s “V Series”, mimicking the use of stripes and sharp, angular geometry. The pattern is featured in a range of calming colorways designed to evoke peaceful images of the sea, creating a soothing experience for guests in high-traffic environments like hospitals, hotels, and restaurants.
Riley features the signature modern art style of English painter, Bridget Riley. The pattern marries clean lines and repeated shapes, creating a “peep-hole” aesthetic with a subtle herringbone pattern. The crisp, artistic pattern is available in earthy hues inspired by colors found in nature – they can stand on their own as a bold accent or be paired to create a dynamic color story to enhance commercial spaces.
Built into each of these unique designs is Sunbrella’s unmatched power of performance, offering the durability and cleanability to withstand heavy use in hospitality, healthcare, and workplace settings.
