Lori Weitzner (USA) is creative director of New York-based firm, Weitzner Limited. Though arguably most well-known for her textiles, Lori has achieved international renown with designs that cross a multitude of disciplines. Her innovative Newsworthy wall covering for example, shown below, takes recycled newspapers to a new level. The design is woven on a hand loom from strips of newsprint and backed for all applications from residential to hospitality.
In 2004 Lori launched Weitzner Limited, “offering innovative furnishings for the wall to designers worldwide. An award winning line that combines extraordinary design with uncommon materials to create innovative new products—including a number of which that are environmentally conscious—Weitzner Limited is an extension of Lori’s commitment to creating exceptional design that is in line with the human spirit.”
In 2012 Lori launched her first own textile collection, Vernissage, under the Weitzner brand. “While her wallcoverings and textiles are committed to preserving the time-honored techniques and artistry of those who make a product by hand, Weitzner also strives to explore new technologies and collaborate with others in diverse fields.”
