Woven Image has expanded its collaboration with renowned Australian artist and printmaker Bruce Goold to include new upholstery fabrics, an acoustic wall covering and an acoustic hanging panel.
18 May, 2018
Born in Newcastle, Australia in 1949, Bruce Goold is one of the country’s most celebrated artists. Goold’s principal medium is the block print and the majority of his work consists of linocuts, woodcuts, silkscreen fabrics and paintings with flora and fauna leitmotifs.
In 1990, recognising the market need for design-driven textile products, a forward-thinking young brand named Woven Image released Goold’s iconic Woodcut Rose artwork as a printed fabric to a great acclaim.
Fast-forward to 28 years later, Woven Image has grown into an industry leader with a robust operation and an ever-youthful vision. And it just recently expanded its collaboration with Goold.
The new Bruce Goold collection from Woven Image comprises the original iconic Woodcut Rose upholstery, new upholstery motifs Banana Grove and Rattan, acoustic wall covering Seagrass, and acoustic hanging panel Pendent Rose.
The new Woodcut Rose is available in five colourways, ranging from bright burst of reds and pinks to subdued combination of blue-grey and beige shades.
Capturing a bird’s eye view flying over a grove of banana trees, the Banana Grove upholstery collection is available in four colourways: brown and white, yellow and white, tone-on-tone red, and tone-on-tone green.
Available in seven colourways, the Rattan upholstery was inspired by a large woven basket Goold used to store raw cotton. Goold drew a segment of the weave onto a lino block and used it as a module to create a seamless pattern. The wall covering version of this motif, called Seagrass, is available in four colourways in 2.8 x 1.1-metre panels.
Woven Image has also created Pendent Rose, an exquisite acoustic hanging wall panel series inspired by the Woodcut Rose motif. Featuring cut-out motif of roses, Pendent Rose is available as 2.4 x 1.2-metre panels with a handy hanging kit in no less than 20 colours to add a (high-performance) romantic touch to any space.
