VEER by Aliki van der Kruijs is Wolf-Gordon’s latest collaboration with an emerging designer. 

For this commercial upholstery collection, van der Kruijs has explored 2- and 3D space through a simple grid motif, the origins of which started with the designer’s purchase of an antique kimono textile in Arita, Japan. Van der Kruijs first applied the graphic kimono grid to the volumes of porcelain vases, which resulted in distortions of the grid.

It is this dialectic process between 2- and 3D that yields new patterning and imparts richness in the collection’s three patterns: FLOAT, TURN and SLIDE.
