Cristian Zuzunaga’s textile designs works on many levels. The London- and Barcelona-based designer’s latest collection is no exception.

 

‘Bitmap’ plays with the idea of a simultaneous micro and macro view of the world, referencing as it does the visual DNA of digital imagery examined close up and, at the same time, the urban landscape presented in cartographic form – a bit of a map. The clue is in the name of the woven products, such as ‘New York’, ‘Shanghai’, ‘Tokyo’ and, of course, ‘Barcelona’.

In spite of Zuzunaga’s concept-driven approach, his home and fashion accessories are very much products that engage the senses, with their striking use of colour and their top-quality materials. A good conscience is woven into the textiles too, as the award-winning designer explains: “We believe in ethical and sustainable ways of working. For us, this means working with suppliers and manufacturers whose practices are kind to the environment and promote long term sustainability and growth, not just within their own companies but within their local communities. Sustainability also means longevity, and working with the best materials ensures that our products will last a lifetime.”

 

More, please.
