'Bitmap' collection by Zuzunaga

‘Bitmap’ collection by Zuzunaga

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’.

'Six-Forty by Four-Eighty' by Zigelbaum + Coelho

MIT Media Lab research students and self-avowed nerds Jamie Zigelbaum and Marcelo Coehlo have presented a compelling light installation at this year’s Design Miami Basel, called ‘Six-Forty by Four-Eighty’. Working at the interface between design and digital technology, the duo, one of four recipients of the show’s W Hotels Designers of the Future Awards, have created a modular, interactive lighting system that encourages the user to touch, move, compose and recompose its constituent parts to create a rich visual drama.

'Six-Forty by Four-Eighty' by Zigelbaum + Coelho

Based on the idea of the pixel, the installation features 220 magnetic tiles, which, when moved, change colour. Dynamic light patterns across multiple pixels can be produced by simply pointing at them. Most fascinating of all though is the way that they can communicate with each other via the user: touching two of the tiles at the same time allows a current to pass through the person’s skin, which has a synchronising effect. Never was nerdiness so beautiful.
