Tjep. Cubism by Wolf Gordon


Wolf-Gordon has teamed up with Tjep to create an exclusive collection of interior surfacing materials all of which draw inspiration from the cube. Recently presented at the 2015 Salone del Mobile, Tjep. Cubism includes wall coverings, an upholstery textile, and a sheer drapery textile. The geometric inspiration is “a playful reference to the early 20th century cultural phenomenon, Czech Cubism.”

“I chose the most fundamental architectural shape as a starting point for the new collection: the cube. From there, my challenge was to add poetry, creativity, and dynamics to the most formal architectural shape imaginable”, explains Frank Tjepkema, principal of Tjep.

The fabric comes in 12 color ways including bold mustard and an elegant blue. The pattern’s depth and subtle variations depict the 3-D cube while also presenting 2-D diamonds.
