The ‘Wrong for HAY’ collaboration debuts at the 2013 London Design Festival with its inaugural collection
This year’s London Design Festival in September will see the debut of a new creative collaboration between London-based designer Sebastian Wrong and Danish design manufacturer HAY.
Called ‘Wrong for HAY’, the collection comprises lighting, furniture, ceramics, glassware and textiles, and, under the creative direction of Wrong (former design director at British design brand Established & Sons) it “draws upon [London's] creative energy, eclecticism and talent to explore new working relationships, new products and new markets”.
‘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’.

Three dimensional textiles by Angharad McLaren
At this year’s 100%Futures the Britsh textile designer Angharad McLaren presented her recent works, a collection of artfully woven textiles suitable for blinds, screens or wall panels.
A passion for the sea and water-sports such as sailing and windsurfing visually inspire the colours, patterns and textures in Angharad’s designs. Her personal experience of sports and performance textiles has also led to an interest and exploration of hi-tech yarns and finishes such as neoprene and reflective yarns as well as organic, recycled and eco-friendly fibres. In an experimental design process she combines these with new weave structures and updates traditional patterns, sometimes combining industrial production with hand- finishing techniques to create unique innovative effects.
Visually inspired by sea and water-sports such as sailing and windsurfing
“As the yarns and materials I use are quite unusual, I sometimes have to experiment with a lot of different weave structures and techniques until I get the right effect. Weaving intrigues me as there are so many possibilities within a logical framework of structures and limitations- I like to push these boundaries and develop new techniques to get the effect I’m looking for, such as using a traditional technique with very modern yarns or combining hand craft techniques with industrial production.”

Angharad McLaren is currently working on a commission which also looks to traditional textiles for research: to design and produce blinds for the Shetland Museums’ Hay’s Dock Cafe & Restaurant.

'teapot 3' by Nina Levett 2009
Nina Levett’s patterns and ornaments are based on conceptual, humorous ideas, her work is based on experiments with surfaces and materials. Ornaments and patterns are developed for ceramic tiles, textiles, resin floors, boats, glass walls as well as packaging and (editorial) print.
The patterns on the wallpapers are handpainted and finished with epoxy resin.
She now uses these designs with wallpapers, home textiles, and fashion articles; all the things that we use to make our homes and lives perfect. The idea is to show the perfect home, swallowing the perfect housewife with her perfect husband, and make them ridiculously invisible so that they become accessorized by their wish to be seemingly perfect people.
