halloessen and Kontor Kontur exhibition at Greenhouse 2011 in Stockholm
This year’s Greenhouse – the young designer’s exhibition during the Stockholm Furniture Fair – had again a lot to offer. One of the most beautiful exhibitions was the shared booth of the German designers from halloessen and the Gothenburg based designer trio Kontor Kontur – an artful interplay of graphical decoration, delicate textile design and sophisticated furniture and accessories.

The Dutch designers Scholten & Baijings realised a new collection of home textiles for the Danish manufacturer HAY. The first items, bed linen, tea towels and two series of carpets were presented at this year’s Maison & Object for the first time.
Cristian Zuzunaga's new urban-landscape-inspired collection for Danish design-textile brand Kvadrat, shown at their London showroom during the 2010 London Design Festival
In the (unfortunate) hierarchy of design disciplines – just ask any architect and they’ll confirm this – textile design has traditionally occupied a less-than-superior position. Spanish-born Londoner Cristian Zuzunaga has been troubling the creative order of things recently, however, with his conceptually and technically innovative work for such leading textile manfuacturers as Kvadrat and Nanimarquina.

'Fire' pattern for Kvadrat pillowcases by Christian Zuzunaga
His impressing colourful visual landscapes were discovered by one of the best textile companies. Kvadrat will launch a new collection of textiles designed by the Barcelona born and London based pattern designer Christian Zuzunaga.
His cushion collection, ‘Squaring of the Circle’, consists of three designs, named ‘Spirit’, ‘Soul’ and ‘Fire’, which are all constructed from pixels – the designer’s trademark pattern. Each cushion will be unique thanks to the repeat of the printed fabric. This as well as Cristian Zuzunaga’s curtain collection ‘Skyline and Cityscape’ will be presented during this year’s London Design Festival at the Kvadrat showroom, 10 Shepherdess Walk, London N1 7LB.
'The Dwelling Lab' for Kvadrat and BM
Together with Giulio Ridolfi the Milan based designer Patricia Urquiola was assigned to create a conceptual installation for the Danish textile manufacturer Kvadrat and the German carmaker BMW. The result of this fruitful collaboration are these huge cone-like structures that seem to be growing out of the car’s body.
The installation will be showcased during this year’s London Design Festival 22nd – 26th September 2010 at The Tramshed Event in the old disused electricity power station for the Shoreditch tram system. Beside ‘The Dwelling Lab’ there will be 25 exclusive international design brands exhibiting at this bold new venue.
