Weitzner | The Contesseration Collection

Introducing the Spring 2017 Collection, Contesseration

Weitzner’s Spring 2017 collection, entitled Contesseration, pays homage to the surfaces and patinas of art forms, both ancient and current. It takes its name from the long-forgotten act of pledging friendship through the exchange of small square tablets known as tesserae: it’s an act that juxtaposes the hard and the soft, just as beautiful design often does.

This collection in particular finds inspiration from art’s hard surfaces and melds them with the soft hand of textiles. From the speckled glazes of ceramica to oil-paint chips of Old Master portraits, from the tesserae of mosaics to the sheen of metal sculpture, these elusive layers are captured in the colors, textures and patterns of Weitzner’s latest wallcoverings and textiles.

Lori Weitzner | Space Study Blog

Lori Weitzner's studio on the Space Study Blog

Lori discusses how her studio space is integral to her design process on the Visual Magnetic blog series Space Study.

"The intention here was to create a space that felt good the moment you walk in. Like an oasis from the urban, gritty city streets. I’m a city girl, and native New Yorker, but the irony is I’ve created this “white box sanctuary” as my creative space."

Weitzner | The Halcyon Collection

The Halcyon Collection

Halcyon Days are the inspiration for Weitzner’s fall introduction of fabrics and wallcoverings. The word halcyon’s connotation of peace and prosperity—derived from the mythological halcyon bird said to have the power of charming winds and waves into calmness—perfectly captures the collection’s watercolor hues and pastoral references. It evokes a mood of modern romanticism that is calm yet joyful, tranquil yet carefree.

Florals are at the heart of the fabric collection. Sophie’s exuberant embroidery comes in two cheerful colorways, while the impressionistic Emma offers a more muted look. The third floral, Capulet, whispers like a Zen garden. Other nature-inspired elements round out the offering—from Miles’ earthy tones to New Moon’s ocean-wave texture.

This collection's wallcoverings embody the same sense of ease. The handmade Lullaby features quietly undulating strips of natural torn paper. Headlines, another handmade that is woven from strips of rolled magazine pages, gives grasscloth new meaning with its modern and colorful take on the medium. Additional wallcoverings include Sonia, evocative of a soft-texture oil painting, and Coral Reef, an all-over pattern of its namesake marine motif.

Weitzner | Poiret as muse Collection

Introducing the Poiret As Muse Collection

Fashion is a continual source of inspiration for the Weitzner studio, and this season, we drew from the designs of twentieth-century French fashion designer Paul Poiret. Known for introducing the modern silhouette that liberated women from their corsets in the 1920s, Poiret imbued his clothes with a theatrical flair and a keen use of pattern and textile techniques.

Expanding on Weitzner’s signature style, we have translated the whimsy and worldliness of Poiret’s oeuvre into a range of materials and constructions. This season’s offerings include sumptuous, couture-inspired textiles and wallcoverings, as well as new introductions of Weitzner Indoor/Outdoor fabrics and Weitzner Perform Clean Vinyls

Weitzner | New Renaissance

Introducing the New Renaissance Collection

This fall, Weitzner introduces their New Renaissance collection, a rich world of fabrics and wallcoverings in which old and new walk hand in hand.

"Longing for the opulence of another age, the Weitzner studio turned our gaze to the frescos of the Italian Renaissance for inspiration for our Fall 2015 collection. We drew from the distinctive coloring, varied textures and signature motifs of this rich time period, reinterpreting what we found in cut paper sculptures, watercolor paintings, and many more techniques. The resulting collection, our “New Renaissance,” speaks of our effort to reinvigorate age-old ideas for a modern world."

Weitzner | Nature Redefined

Introducing the Nature Redefined Collection

In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous.
Artistotle

The Weitzner studio endeavors to capture the wonders of the natural world through unexpected materials, fresh colors, and innovative constructions. Beginning with extensive paintings, drawings, and color studies, we translated our designs into qualities that convey more than just a leaf or a flower, but a sense of soul. Greater than the sum of its parts, Nature Redefined is a pursuit of harmony and balance, of the elements that define a space and inspire beauty and peace.

Q&A with Lori Weitzner In NY Spaces

NYS: What was the Omotenashi Collection inspired by?

LW: The collection was inspired by my first trip to Japan two years ago. It is the culmination of everything I saw, touched, tasted, smelled; everyone I met.

NYS: What does the name of the collection stand for?

LW: Omotenashi is a kind of “hospitality” that is inherent to Japanese culture. As I traveled, I felt it everywhere. It is difficult to put into words.

NYS: What goes into Japanese hospitality?

LW: In addition to a certain grace, warmth and care, one is made to feel important, respected and appreciated. They give you a lot of time; they listen and seem genuinely interested. They are most generous in making sure you are taken care of. Gifts are a part of their culture but behind their gifts I found true thoughtfulness and authenticity.

Weitzner | World of Interiors

Summary of Q&A with Lori Weitzner and
The World of Interiors 23.09.14

Q: How much time does to it take to design a collection and is it done by hand or computer?

A: The development of a collection takes around nine months, plus three months to receive and review samples - so about a year in total. We prefer to sketch and draw, believing the soul of the product is in the hand”

Q: How does UK interior design compare to US interior Design?

A: “Have you got an hour or two…? I think that UK interior designers are charming. Even the most contemporary interior design in Britain has an element of warmth and whimsy. The UK also has much more heritage, even in contemporary design.”

Q: Would you ever create a London inspired collection?

A: Absolutely! I’m so inspired by the urban gardens – but I’m very open to any ideas that will get me back here. I love London!”

Q: What drew you to design? Have you always been a creative person?

A: I was a Fine Arts major and a very honest professor asked me just how exactly I intended to make money. I was very grateful of his almost blunt honesty! He asked me if I had considered textiles and that’s how my career started.”

Q: The Chrysler Building is iconic and full of strong design. Was it tough to replicate its grand image or choose one detail?

A: For me, The Chrysler Building was an obvious choice. Its beautiful geometry inspired me to create my Chrysler trim.

Q: Some of the borders in the new collection mix materials – should they be only placed on plainer fabrics?

A: Not necessarily - try to mix materials unexpectedly. These can bring the product to life in a new way!

Q: Did any part of this new collection pose an unexpected challenge when designing?

A: Not in the design, but the production. These can sometimes arise with intricate embroidery, but Samuel & Sons always make it happen!

Q: Which border in the collection is your favourite?

A: Oh no, I can’t! That’s like asking me who my favourite child is… I love them all!

Weitzner | Omotenashi

Introducing the Omotenashi Collection

The concept for Weitzner's Fall 2014 fabric and wallcovering collections emerged from Lori Weitzner's recent travels to Japan. A longtime admirer of Japanese arts and culture, Lori was struck not only by the beauty of the landscape and exquisite craftsmanship, but by a warm, welcoming feeling she could not quite name. This heartfelt sensibility pervaded all aspects of her stay, from hotels and restaurants to weaving mills and boutiques. Inquiring further, she discovered the Japanese word, Omotenashi, which loosely translates to "the spirit of selfless hospitality."

This sentiment quickly became the touchstone for our collection. Employing a range of materials and techniques, we seek to imbue our products with this universal sense of warmth and grace.

Weitzner Limited Gypsy Emperor Marisol Alcove

Introducing the Alhambra Collection, Weitzner's latest in fabrics.

This Spring, Weitzner introduces Alhambra, a collection of upholstery, decoration and window fabrics inspired by the famed Spanish palace and fortress complex. After studying books and photographs of this “architectural melting pot,” the Weitzner studio began crafting patterns that were both modern and universal.

The collection speaks of these influences from the ethereal quality of the sheers, to the structure of the upholsteries, to the subtle geometry of the embroideries. Pictured above from left to right: Gypsy in silhouette, Emperor in espresso, Marisol in mineral, and Alcove in granite.

Photo Finish for PhilaU Students

"In the end, there could be only one: The thirty Philadelphia University students participating in a special spring program with textile studios Weitzner Limited presented their final wall covering projects to a panel of guest jurists at a special buffet dinner event held in Philadelphia. Narrowed to five teams, the graduate-and-undergraduate designers — all of them dressed to the nines — showed off products produced during a semester’s work. Each team was vying for the chance to have their team’s proposal selected for commercial distribution by Weitzner Limited."
