The Wool Lab Interiors is a guide to the best wool textiles and to the most interesting and innovative applications of wool, in this case in the furnishing and interior textile sectors. The guide is a result of international research carried out by The Woolmark Company to select the newest products from the world's best companies.
Doubling as both an inspirational trend book and a practical work tool, The Wool Lab Interiors is intended for designers, architects, interior decorators, and specialised professionals all of whom can select materials based on the guide and get in touch with the relevant suppliers through The Woolmark Company.
This service is provided free of charge to promote the appreciation and use of wool in interior design. It will be visible at Intertextile Shanghai (Home Textiles), at The Woolmark Company’s booth found at W2F01.
To celebrate its debut in design, The Woolmark Company has partnered with the leading design, architecture, fashion and lifestyle publication Wallpaper*, and invited international designers – ranging from architects to interior decorators – to offer their personal interpretation of the themes presented in The Wool Lab Interiors.
The four designers whose interpretation of wool can be seen at Intertextile Shanghai are:
- Light by Snarkitecture, an American architecture studio; took inspiration from the Pure theme;
- Tipi Tent by Emiliano Godoy, Environmental designer, Mexico; took inspiration from the Metropolis theme;
- Fabric display by ESRAWE Studio, Interior and Furniture design, Mexico; took inspiration from the Tweed Heritage theme;
- Butler + Table fabric by Ron Gilad, designer based in New York.
Wallpaper interiors director Benjamin Kempton explains: "The exhibition provided The Woolmark Company a unique platform to present their new initiative, The Wool Lab Interiors, to Wallpaper's influential audience. As a partner, The Woolmark Company was able to use the exhibition to integrate with visitors and showcase the vast potential that wool can offer in the design field."
This is the first time The Wool Lab Interiors will be shown at Intertextile Shanghai, sharing with visitors the countless options to interior design, including comfort, softness, resilience, flame resistance, easy care, sound and heat insulation, assurance of wellbeing and eco-sustainability.
Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd senior general manager Ms Wendy Wen explains: "Intertextile Shanghai (Home Textiles) is all about bringing the best textiles on offer from around the world to the Chinese market. So it’s only natural that we partner with leading organisations such as The Woolmark Company to achieve this.
"We are excited about hosting their ‘International wool art inspired by The Wool Lab Interiors' display area for the first time, and are sure that the interior design options on offer will be well-received by Chinese buyers for the domestic market, who are increasingly looking for trendy options from overseas, as well as by our other visitors from around the world."
